Hello Parents,

Kona Ice is coming to Eastside on Friday, May 13th.

We are using Kona Ice Pay to simplify the process and make things easier for our staff. Please copy and paste the link into your browser to pay.

If your student has a Kona Ice plastic cup, they may bring it and use the "Refill" option for $3 (please make sure the cup is clean and not cracked)

If you would like to provide a Kona for another student, or multiple Konas, please select the "pay it forward" option, and pick the number of Konas you wish to provide.

Please have your order in by Thursday, May 12 at 9PM.

No cash will be accepted on the day of the event.

A few announcements


  • Instruction begins at 7:45 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.
  • If you have any transportation changes, please make sure that you let Mrs. Whitney know by 2:30pm. This ensures that she has enough time to alert teachers of the change. Teachers may not check communication throughout the day, so changes need to go through the office.
  • Parents of students in grades 3-5, please revisit with your child the school's dress code! Tank tops must be at least 3 fingers wide and shorts must be fingertip length. Thank you for your help with this!
