Public Service Announcements:
Please remember: Faxes or emails are not allowed for students to check out. A signed, written note must be turned into the front office in the morning and/or a parent/guardian must check the student out in person.
Food for Thought:
Ways to stay In-The-Know:
-Talk to your student! Chances are, they know more than they are sharing.
-Email your student's teachers and/or administrators
-Call your student's teachers, administrators, and/or our WONDERFUL office staff
(Make sure you keep your contact information up-to-date so we can give you a call back!)
-Request a conference. Sometimes face-to-face is the best way to have a conversation.
-If your student's teachers offer REMIND - sign up!
-Check out our school's website - eastlimestonehigh.org
-Make sure to look at the "Natives' News" on our website for up-to-date and future information.
-Follow East Limestone on Twitter - @limestone_east
-School-wide All Calls
-Get an Inow/Chalkable account set up
-Ask your student if his/her teachers are using Moodle or Google Classroom, have them SHOW you.
-Check out the East Limestone Community Information Page and the East Limestone PTO page on Facebook. Please remember that we are a FAMILY. Keep it positive. We are working hard to create, not only, a safe, loving, learning environment for our students, but also, a working environment where our teachers and staff are as supported as our students. Again, if you have a question, just ask.
