Ways to stay In-The-Know:

Don't be shy! If you have questions about what is going on at ELHS, ask! You are more than welcome to:

-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.
