Weekly EGE Note

Good afternoon EGE!


According to my lawn we are having a true spring this year. It is green and will not stop growing! Luckily I have a junior in HS that loves to cut the grass! Get those children outside and helping you! Great for the body and mind!


PSSA news

I am sorry to say that the PA State Department thinks that all our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders should take the PSSA this year even with all that we have gone through this past year. The district has decided to move them to the very end of the year so that we can keep on teaching in April and May. We will however have a much easier way for you to opt your child out if you do not want them to take it this year. More information about that in the weeks to come. Below is the schedule for PSSA for EGE.


May 25, 26 and 27 ELA for 3rd, 4th and 5th

June 1 and 2 Math for 3rd, 4th and 5th

June 3 and 4 Science for 4th grade only

What to do if your child is not feeling well


Do the Daily Home Screening checklist with your child every day, and follow the guidelines for keeping sick children home.

Call the Safe Arrival line to report your child’s absence. 484 266-1510

Contact your health care provider if your child has symptoms.


Contact the school nurse if your child or another person in the household has had a test for Covid-19. Keep your child home if he/she is waiting for test results or if your child has a known exposure to someone who tests positive for Covid-19.

Attendance Information

If your child is going to be absent from school (miss AM and PM zoom sessions) please be sure to call the attendance hotline at 484-266-1510 and/or email your child's teacher and Mrs. Batten(rbatten@wcasd.net). Please also send us an absence note. You can send the note via email. If you can take a picture of a written note with your signature to send to us that would be great. You can email it to your child's classroom teacher and Mrs. Batten, also.
