Everything You Need to Know For The Coming Week

November 8, 2020

A Note from the principal

Hello Easley families,

SIT Meeting

Our next SIT meeting is tomorrow evening at 5:30 PM via Zoom.

Easley Data Manager

Congratulations are in order for our Data Manager, Lisa Varner, as she is taking a promotion and moving into another position within the District. Lisa, has been a wonderful addition to our staff for the past two years and will be greatly missed. We are very fortunate that our former Data Manager, Leah Rubow, has decided to come back to Easley. We are anticipating she will return after the Thanksgiving break. Mrs. Varner's last day with us will be this Friday. We wish Lisa the best in her new position and know she won't be a stranger!

Specials Grab Bag Sessions

4th Grade Specials Zoom at 1:30 PM on Monday

5th Grade Specials Zoom at 1:30 on Tuesday

Veteran's Day Holiday

Please be reminded that this Wednesday there will be no school in recognition of the Veteran's Day holiday.

New Schedules

We've had our new schedules in place for the past couple week. Grade levels and teachers are still in the process of ironing out kinks and making adjustments. Thank you for being flexible and providing feedback when they've reached out. We are trying to balance the district schedule mandates with what we see had been working for our students. Please continue to provide input and feedback as we want to know how things are working.

Plan B Updates

There is not a lot of information to provide right now regarding Plan B and the possible return to school. The district is still in the planning stages and making plans based on the number of students enrolled in Ignite. I anticipate the plan will be shared in the next couple weeks once it's been finalized. I do know that once the plan is shared, there will be another opportunity for parents to decided if they would like to enroll in Ignite. I will continue to provide updates as we have them. Please don't hesitate to reach out should you have any questions or concerns.
