First Day of School

Back to School Night

We will be hosting a virtual Back to School Night for our students and families in grades 1-4 tonight, Tuesday, August 4. If you selected in-person instruction, you received a call from your child's new teacher yesterday. The purpose of the call was to introduce themselves and verify your email address for tonight's virtual Zoom sessions. Below is the information you need to join a session. To meet the needs of our families we are offering two sessions. The first session begins at 6:00 pm. The second session begins at 6:40 pm. Eastridge teachers are excited to connect with you! Please contact our front office at (317) 532-3150 with questions.

Kindergarten families (only) will have an opportunity to meet their teacher face-to-face today, August 4. If you selected in-person instruction, you received a call from your child's new teacher yesterday. The purpose of the call was to introduce themselves and assign you a time to come into the school to learn more about Kindergarten and meet the teacher before the first day of school. If you were unable to connect with your child's teacher please contact the front office at (317)532-3150. In order to practice social distancing, we are asking parents to honor the session time giving by the teacher. We are also asking parents to limit the amount of family members attending Back-to-School Night (only 1 family member and the student will be allowed to visit).

Please enter the school building through door 1 (main entrance). A staff member will greet you at the door and escort you to your child's new classroom. Doors will open at 6:00 pm for the first session and 7:00 pm for the second session.

We are looking forward to meeting with our newest Rockets and welcoming back our 1st through 4th grade students!

Virtual Learning Academy

If your student registered for the virtual learning path for the 2020-2021 school year, I'd like to share some important information with you. School begins on Thursday, August 6. There will be a device and textbook pickup in order to get needed materials to our virtual students on Tuesday, August 4 from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm at Eastridge Elementary. Kindergarten students will receive a school-issued iPad. 4th-grade students should return their Chromebooks and chargers so that they can receive a school-issued iPad. All other students should use the device that was issued last spring. If you did not receive a device, a device will be issued to you on Tuesday evening. As a reminder, this is a drive-thru pick-up. We will have signs that will direct you to the north side of the building. Please remain in your car. Staff will come to your car to retrieve the needed information and will bring materials to you. Please remember if your child will be a 4th grader, they will need to return their Chromebook and charger and will receive an iPad. I know the first day of school is coming quickly and you are eager to learn more about your student's teachers and classes. Your student's virtual teacher will contact you by Wednesday, August 5th to share information. Thank you so much for your patience and support! We are looking forward to starting our 20-21 school year next week!
