A NOTE FROM THE DISTRICT NURSE

Please be sure to update your child's medical information during registration and notify the building's Health Aide and teacher(s) of any life threatening health issues.

Parents should also have their child's updated vaccination records on file at his/her school.

Please note: dismissal will run late at EPS/EIS on the first few days of school.

Although the schools will take extra time to get students ready for dismissal (checking, double, & triple checking their dismissal notes), it will take time to make sure EVERY student is dismissed to their correct mode of transportation. Please be patient and look for Facebook posts announcing when the buses have left the buildings. Times will get better daily, and students will fall into the routines established very quickly.

Please NOTE:
* Parents who will be dropping-off or picking-up at EPS/EIS, please review this document.


* Please let your child(ren)'s teacher(s) know how your child will go home everyday for the first 2 weeks and even a typical schedule once you know it. (For instance, some students' routes will change once Boys & Girls Club re-opens for the school year on Monday, Aug. 12.)


* Please only call the schools with changes to transportation before 2 p.m. (standard procedure). The phones will be very busy those first few days, so please have patience. Letting your child's teacher know ahead of time will save you and the office time. Please DO NOT send emails to your child's teacher about transportation changes. There is a good chance he/she will not be able to check email during the school day.

FREE BREAKFAST FOR ALL RBBCSC STUDENTS THIS YEAR!

Starting this school year, all students at RBBCSC have the option of receiving a free breakfast each school day that breakfast is offered. Breakfast is not served on days that a 2 hour delay is in effect. For more information, please stay tuned for an email from Vickie Coffey, our Nutrition Service Director, explaining all things nutrition services related.

MEET OUT NEW EECC DIRECTOR!

I'm thrilled to join R-BB as Preschool Coordinator and Assistant Director of High Ability Education after seven years at Binford Elementary in Bloomington. My work there as a fourth grade teacher culminated in the 2017 Lilly Teacher Creativity Grant and the 2019 Educator of the Year award from the Franklin Initiative. In addition to teaching, I've served as a local preschool camp director for fifteen years and spent a decade as a children's ministry director, as well. My wife Leah and I are the proud parents of a Mustang, a Colt, and an Eagle: Ellie (15), Benjamin (12), and Rowan (10).

Boys & Girls Club of Ellettsville Has Moved Locations!

The Boys and Girls Club moved out of the EIS building to the EECC building in July. They will continue to provide afterschool programming in their new space starting Monday, August 12. In the past they would close for staff training the first 2 weeks of the school year. To better serve families, they will only be closed during the weeks of Aug. 5-9 -- which is only the first 3 school days for students. Families that regularly use the Club and have their children registered will need to find alternative childcare afterschool the first 3 days.


PLEASE LET YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER KNOW HOW HE/SHE SHOULD BE DISMISSED THOSE 3 DAYS IF THEY ATTEND EPS or EIS.


If you are interested in registering your child with the Boys and Girls Club, please call or visit their information tables during Open House times on Tuesday, August 6th at both EPS and EIS.


Please see their flyer below or click on it to be taken to the Boys and Girls Club website.

MEET OUR NEW EIS ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL

Hello, my name is Andy Scholl, and I am beyond excited to be an Eagle! I received my BS from Indiana State University, and my M.Ed. from Indiana Wesleyan University. I previously taught 7th grade social studies and coached girls' basketball for eleven years at Hauser Jr/Sr High School, in Hope, IN. I then began my administrative career as the assistant principal at Edinburgh HS/MS for two years, followed by the most recent four years serving as the principal at East Side Elementary, in Edinburgh. EIS is an amazing school that is doing incredible things for children. As a parent of two RBB students, I have been beyond impressed by the care, dedication, and engagement my children have encountered from both the teachers and staff. I am excited to be able to use my experience with engaging families from a variety of different backgrounds to help build on the academic successes RBB has enjoyed for many years.


To share a little about myself, I live here in Ellettsville with my wife, Kelly, our two children, Holly (10) and Hudson (8), and our bernedoodle, Crosley. We moved here from Greenwood two years ago after Kelly (a former physics teacher) was hired by IU to help faculty with their teaching. We chose RBB based on our desire to be a part of a community that feels like family, and that feeling has been prevalent from day one.


Kelly and I both enjoy visiting different baseball stadiums and have been to over half of the current major league parks. As a family we love to travel, and when we are not busy, we enjoy working on remodeling projects on the fixer-upper we bought west of town. I'm excited to get started, and I look forward to working with you and your children and continuing to become part of this wonderful community. Please contact me at ascholl@rbbschools.net if you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns.
