Note from the Principal's Desk

Greetings Parents and Stakeholders,

Happy March Everybody! This school year just keeps cranking up speed. Please remember to remind your students that while on buses, students need to be seated at all times and to refrain from eating, drinking, or throwing anything. Failure to follow rules on buses could result in a short suspension off of the bus. Picture day is right around the corner. Please put April 1st on your calendar. Thank you for all you do for E.J. Hayes: Where relationships foster learning.


Mr. Myers
