The Triton Tribune Parent Edition

Be Kind ~ Be Awesome ~ Make The Right Choices

Volume 2 ~ Issue2 ~ August 3, 2020

Wonderful Triton Parent/Guardians and Students,

The first day is upon us! Like the teachers and me, I am certain that all of you are feeling nervous, anxious, jittery and every other emotions that are associated with uncertainty. I can tell you that ELM teachers have been on overdrive since last week trying to find the best way to navigate these unchartered waters. In spite of their apprehension, they are forging ahead to provide your children the best possible opening day in distance learning.

In spite of being of our commitment to preparing and attempting to anticipate problems, there will be glitches. I am asking for your patience, kindness and grace for all of us and most importantly, for you and your child.


  • To get as many students to log in for the the live sessions for each of their classes.

If your children do not get in, please do not worry. Have them keep trying if they are kicked out. And if they still do not get it, please email the teacher so that they are not marked absent.

In order to participate in the Live Session for each class, students must join their Google Classrooms by code by MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 3. before 8:20am.

All codes for ELM are on the home page of our website [link]. They must have downloaded both Google Hangout Meets and Microsoft TEAMS. Both of these are in the IPAD Catalog.

Communication is vital especially in times like these, so I will continue to use social media as additional platforms for communication. If you are not following our facebook page, please join our Eastlake Middle School Facebook Page. Follow me on Instagram at @elmprincipal and on Twitter at @erfinleysd. This is in addition to all the internal district communication such as Campus Portal, Infinite Message and Jupiter Grades and the ELM Website.

On Friday, July 31, I sent an update regarding registration and first day of school. Here is the link to that update. It includes answers to your questions about immunization, class schedule, class changes and other first day/week protocols.

Finally, on the front page of the website, we have added a support line starting tomorrow. Please complete the form and our support team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Below are some information that are pertinent to starting tomorrow successful.


Let's have an amazing week!

Mrs. Finley
