Greeting Eastridge Families,

We have had a fantastic 10 days of school at Eastridge! This week, our staff has been busy continuing the important work of teaching C.O.R.E. principles in all settings across the school. The acronym C.O.R.E. standards for Civility, Order, Respect, and Excellence. C.O.R.E is what we stand for at Eastridge and in the entire Warren Township community. We are explicitly teaching expected behaviors from the time students get on the bus in the morning, until the time they get off the bus in the afternoon. Each student will be expected to know the desired behaviors and will be responsible for doing his/her part in helping school staff in developing a safe and positive environment for everyone. We will also appreciate your support with C.O.R.E. at home! Safety and security are paramount each and every day, and I thank you for your efforts with ensuring expectations are respected.


Warmest regard,

Mrs. Johnson

Attendance Matters, Facts Matters, Information Matters

3. Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence. Read more...


4. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating. Read more...

SCHOOL DISTRICT PUBLICATIONS/ NEWS MEDIA USE FOR STUDENTS

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child’s school. This may include your child’s photo, your child’s name or your child’s work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child’s achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognition if you notify your child’s school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
