Dear ECC Families and Community,

We've had a great week of learning at ECC! It's hard to believe we only have six weeks left in the 20-21 school year. Planning for 21-22 is already in motion, including Kindergarten Kick-off on Monday, April 19 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. If your preschooler is heading to kindergarten next year, please be sure to register for your elementary school's Kindergarten Kick-off.

ECC will also host Preschool Kick-off on Monday from 5:30-7:00 p.m. for families NEW to ECC. If you have a friend or neighbor interested in enrolling for next school year, please send them to ECC on Monday for more information. Have a great weekend!

A Reminder From Nurse Roz

Illness Reporting

We continue to have several absences due to upper respiratory symptoms at ECC. If your child has any symptom(s) of any illness, including cold symptoms, we ask that you keep your child home from school and report their absence and the symptom(s) they are having to their teacher. Nurse Roz will then follow up with you regarding ECC guidelines for returning to school. If you are keeping your child home for other reasons please report that to their teacher as well. Thank You!

It is requested that each child come to school with a full change of clothing, including underwear and socks, in their backpack. Is your child's change of clothing appropriate for the changing seasons? Please make sure you have replaced summer clothes with warmer clothing. We appreciate your assistance.
