A Note from the principal
Quarter Two Revised Schedule
Please click this link to view the updated schedule. You can also view the updated schedule on the school website. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to either your child's classroom teacher or school administration. Classroom teachers will be posting specific times for their Wellness Wednesday classroom zooms.
Over the past few weeks (and perhaps longer for some of you) Easley as well as students at other DPS schools have been experiencing audio issues when using Zoom and DPS allocated Chromebook. This includes freezing, lag, distorted voice, and other audio interference. While there are many factors that could be contributing to this issue, when some of these are ruled out we are still left with no known solution at this time on how to fix. Even swapping out Chromebooks has not been a consistent or successful solution. Please know that we are aware of this issue, understand the frustration, and are working with the district and a Zoom support team to determine a solution. In the meantime we are piloting other video conferencing platforms to determine if the audio quality is better and the platform itself provides a comparable solution. Thank you for your patience as we work through this issue.
A Message from Your PTA
There are so many ways to support Easley Elementary. Every little bit helps to make a difference in our school.
- Purchase a PTA Membership
- Box Tops for Education

Please purchase a PTA Membership! The Easley PTA raises funds to provide a grant for every teacher at Easley Elementary and sponsors teacher appreciation programs. In previous years the money also is used to provide fun community events at Easley Elementary and we hope to continue to provide these community events again once it is safe to do so. These events have included Bingo nights, Literacy night, movie night, cultural night, Fall Carnival and so much more. Everyone can join including parent/guardian, grandparents, faculty and more. To purchase a membership or make a donation to the Easley PTA go online to visit the e-site at: https://easleypta.new.memberhub.store
Box Tops for Education
Box Tops for Education (BTE) has gone paperless! Once you download the BTFE app, you can create an account and designate Easley Elementary as your box top recipient. You simply scan your grocery receipts and the app magically finds the BTE products! We have tried it out and it works, it will also show how much we have raised to date.
Easley proudly joins Harris Teeter’s “Together In Education” program to help raise funds for our school. It’s easy & it’s FREE. Simply give the cashier our code, 1311, & your VIC card when you check out. Your card will be linked for the entire school year. Once your card is linked, Easley will receive a percentage of your Harris Teeter brand (Harris Teeter, Premier Selection, H.T. Traders, Harris Teeter Naturals, Your Pet, Hunter Farms, Highland Crest & More Value) purchases credited back to our account. This program does not interfere with your VIC savings or cost you any money!
You may also go online, register for a “My Harris Teeter” account and link your card to Easley:
