EastView Wildcat News for Families
Week of 8/14 - 8/18
EastView Staff 2023-2024
Message from the office
We ask that all families have a plan for early dismissal. Please discuss this plan with your child. For younger children, please sent a note or email to the teacher so they will have the information. School phone lines were tied up for more than an hour today. We understand that this is unusual at the beginning of the school year; however, this causes unnecessary chaos in an already chaotic situation. If at all possible, please pick your child up in the car line rather than coming inside to check them out. This minimizes classroom interruptions. Thank you for thinking ahead and making a plan for the next early dismissal.
Message from Mrs. Connie
An important email was sent out on Friday that contains helpful information about signing up for various programs such as PowerSchool, My Payments Plus, and Ride 360.
If you are not receiving these emails, please check your other folders to see if it is misplaced. If you do not find these emails, please email Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org. State your name, child’s name, and your preferred email.

No students should cross the road from gravel to entrance in the back lot.
School doors open at 7:15 am at the front and the back for families who need this accommodation. If you do not need this accommodation, we recommend that you do not arrive this early. This time makes for a long wait time for students.
Unloading: Please practice buckling/unbuckling and try to unload 3 cars at a time. Once you are at the front entrance or the back sidewalk you may begin unloading. You do not have to be the first car in order to unload.
Younger Students: PLEASE PRACTICE GETTING OUT OF THE CAR BY YOURSELF THIS WEEK. Staff can help them put their backpack on their back if they can just unload and get to the sidewalk or porch.
School doors are open in the front and the back until 8:15 am. At 8:15 am doors are locked. PARENTS MUST BRING STUDENTS IN THIS YEAR AND SIGN THEM IN WITH THE SECRETARY OR NURSE. Students are counted tardy after this time and will need to be brought to the front to be signed in the adult bringing them to school. 5 unexcused tardies = 1 unexcused absence

Due to traffic issues on Bernard and Barton Ridge, we typically begin loading cars at 3:00 pm.
ONLY STUDENTS IN GRADES 2-5 can cross the back parking lot to the parked cars in gravel. Students in K/1 will not be allowed to cross, so the main line will be a better choice for your family.
We will be checking all cars for car tags. If you do not have car tags (new students and kindergarten) they will be available on Aug. 3rd at the parent meeting, or in the EV office afterwards. If you need more car tags they can be purchased in the office for $3.00.
If you do not have a car tag, you will be asked to park until we can get clearance from the office based on your driver's license information. THIS PROCEDURE IS TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD. We never want to make a mistake in this area of safety.
All students should be picked up by 3:30 pm. If you need childcare after 3:30 pm. Ms. Connie can get you the enrollment information. The YMCA also picks up students from EV each afternoon IF you have registered and paid at the YMCA.
Currently, we will not have an after school program at EV. We also do not have bus transportation to the Boys and Girls Club.
