First Week of School at Eagleville

A big thank you to the staff, students, and parents for the first week of school. The students are already falling into their routines, and I can tell there are a lot of smiles behind those masks. The teachers and support staff are thrilled to have our students back in the building, and we look forward to a great year! Please enjoy the Labor Day weekend and we will see the students back in school on Wednesday, September 8th.

Car Line and Change in Dismissal Parent Note Needed

Hello Eagleville Families,

Car Line Reminder

If you child is a drop off and pick up in the car line I ask that you do not get out of the car when dropping off or picking up your child. Our car line is extremely busy so it is a safety issue. Our staff can assist the children, and they should exit through the car door that is closet to the building. Assisting your child also slows the car line down which has an impact on the buses accessing our bus loop.

Change in Dismissal-Note Needed

If there is a change in dismissal for your child a note must be sent in to the teacher who will notify the main office. For example, if your child normally rides the bus and for one day will be a car rider, then a note is required. We will not change a student's dismissal unless a note is received. Thank you for your cooperation.

Bus Dismissal Information

I always like to keep parents informed of any change in dismissal procedures. We will continue to bring students in through both the temporary office doors and library doors in the AM, but that will be by bus not grade. In the PM all bus students will exit through the library doors now so our K-2 students will have a shorter walk. These two changes will benefit the students.

Welcome Back Students!!

First Day of School Eagleville 2021-2022

Health and Safety Plan

The school district recently adopted an update to the health and safety plan.

Here is the Link for the health and safety plan. Please take the time to read it.

Masks are required inside the building.


Our Masks Are Always On Us….

The Methacton School District requires students to wear masks when they are in school. There are times during the school day when students will be allowed to take their masks off. Lunch, recess, outdoor learning, instrumental lessons, and outdoor physical education classes are the only times masks are removed.

In order to find a way to help elementary students keep track of their masks at all times, the Methacton School District is providing all K - 6 students with a child safe lanyard. These lanyards have a break away option to ensure safety. These easy-to-use lanyards will be kept at school and worn throughout the day so that students are not taking their masks off and leaving them in different locations or on a variety of surfaces.

Teachers will help students remember to keep the lanyards at school and tuck the lanyards in their shirts during recess or Physical Education class. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends people wash their hands or use sanitizer before touching their face. Teachers will make sure students are adhering to safety precautions. If parents would like to supply their own lanyard, we ask that it has the break away option and a clasp children can manipulate by themselves.

If by chance the lanyards have not arrived before the first day of school, teachers will encourage students to keep their masks ON their bodies. This could mean putting them in a pocket or another safe way to keep the mask from leaving the child’s possession.

By providing these lanyards, it is our hope that students find keeping their masks on their bodies is safe, sanitary, and easy.
