ESS Update

Week ending April 23

New Traffic Signs Installed at ESS

Many thanks to Ben Trabka, Officer Siglinger, Public Works and John Calhoun for working together to order and get the new traffic signs installed at ESS. I am hopeful this will help to alleviate some of the traffic flow issues we have here.


Your assistance with following these traffic pattern rules would be greatly appreciated as well. ALL traffic must enter from Soundview and exit out Willoughby morning and afternoons.

Update from Mrs. Weber

I hope everyone enjoyed the break. It is so hard to believe that we are nearing the end of April. Time flies when you're having fun!


Field Day 2021 is happening in June this year!!! Mr. Manning and I have been working on a plan along with the PTO. We will be using all of our mitigation strategies to the fullest. Unfortunately this year there will be no parent volunteers allowed. More information will be coming as we get closer to the event dates.


4th grade celebration is happening in June this year!!! The 4th grade team and I have been working on a plan along with the PTO. We will be using all of our mitigation strategies to the fullest. Unfortunately this year there will be no parent volunteers allowed. More information will be coming as we get closer to the event dates.


Kindergarten Step Up Day is happening in June this year!!! The Kindergarten Team and I have been working on a plan. We will be using all of our mitigation strategies to the fullest. Unfortunately this year there will be no parents allowed here at school. More information will be coming as we get closer to the event date.


If you and your child stay after school to play on the playscape or on the field, please continue to follow the important mitigation strategies of mask wearing and social distancing while playing. We are working our hardest to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff during the school day. Your help with this would be greatly appreciated as well.


As much as I love dogs and puppies, they are not allowed out of the cars on school grounds. This is a district policy for everyone's safety-thank you for following this important rule.


If someone other than yourself is picking your child up at dismissal, please communicate the expectations of mask wearing, how to enter the school grounds and where they should be parking as well as having identification with them. It will ensure a smooth dismissal process.


Please be sure that if your child is a full time distance learner, you let us know by May 1st if they will be returning. May 3rd will be the last day any students may return to in person learning.


Students have the opportunity to have many mask breaks throughout the day. They are at the teacher's discretion when and where they take place, they are not scheduled like they were in the beginning of the year. Any time students are sitting silently working, eating or watching anything on the computer at their desks independently, they may pull their masks down. While students are engaged in conversations, their masks must be up and covering their nose and mouth.


PLEASE remember that ALL cars need to enter through Soundview and exit out Willoughby Road for morning drop off AND parent pick up.


Have a great weekend-Mrs. Weber
