Easley Weekly Update

Everything You Need to Know for the coming week.

January 15, 2023

a note from the principal

It was a busy first week back after winter break!

There is no school tomorrow, Monday, in honor of the MLK holiday.

Last week, the District shared the proposed rules of access for the Growing Together Plan. Our School Improvement Team and PTA have taken a proactive approach in getting information out to our community so all families can make informed decisions for the 2024 school year. The SIT and PTA are holding an informational meeting on Wednesday, January 18th with answers to the questions our community posed in the survey. In addition, two school board members will be present. The meeting will take place in the Easley cafeteria at 6:00 p.m. If you are not able to join us in person, you may join via Zoom. The Zoom link went out through Bloomz. CLICK HERE for more information regarding Growing Together.

Our next Early Release Day is Wednesday, February 8th and school will dismiss at 12:15 P.M.
