Today was officially Tamara's last day as the Administrative Assistant at Eagle Academy. With 10 years at EACS and 11.5 years in the District, Tamara's hard work and dedication has had a positive impact on the lives of so many in our school community.

If you would like to send a note of appreciation, please send it to school with your students the week of March 22nd-25th. We will collect them and deliver them to her home. Help us send her good vibes as she begins the next leg of her journey.

Due to the number families that travel during Spring Break, Eagle Academy will be implementing proactive measures to mitigate the potential of COVID-19 transmission in our building by resuming instruction online for the week March 15-19th. In-person instruction will resume on Monday, March 22nd.

If your family is traveling for spring break, you can find the current guidance here:

Upon return from traveling out of state, there is currently a requirement to quarantine. The number of days is determined by what actions you take during your travel and after you return.

Full Return on Monday, March 22nd

We are currently working to fine tune our plans and Principal Carroll will be sending out more specific information regarding our return on Tuesday, March 16th though the district's BlackBoard Messenger system.

Required for new families to EACS

Eagle Academy is sponsoring “Spalding Night” Zoom trainings. We will discuss Spalding and the use of the phonogram cards and techniques to help study spelling words. Families new to Eagle Academy are required to attend the training to help support your child/ren at home. It is also open to families that need a refresher.

Please bring your phonogram cards to the Zoom. This is an interactive class so I will need the video on. Phonogram cards need to be purchased for the training for $15 / first set, $15 for additional sets of cards***. The following classes are available to choose from:

· Wed., March 17 @ 1:00 PM

· Wed., March 17 @ 6:00 PM

Please email Mrs. Timberlake ASAP to confirm the date/time that you will be attending, and she will send you the Zoom Link. timberlake_melissa@asdk12.org

***To purchase phonogram cards: Go to the ASD website, then to Zangle Parent Connect, to online payments, to phonograms. You will be able to purchase one or more sets of phonogram cards ($15 each) paying with your credit card. You will need to make arrangements to stop by the school to pick them up.

If you do not have your Zangle Parent Connect Pin and Password, please call Tamara ASAP to get it. We cannot accept cash/check.
