A Message from our School Counselor Mrs. Baker
Hello Easley Family! It was my hope to deliver this message in person during classes with the students, but of course that’s not possible right now. I want you to know that I am leaving Easley at the end of this school year. My husband started working for the City of Charlotte in March of 2019, and I felt strongly that I wanted to complete this school year before I joined him. I’ll be moving to Charlotte this summer. I will miss all of my Easley children, families and colleagues so much! I have spent over 10 years as a school counselor here and 6 years prior to that as a parent. Easley and Durham will always be home to me! Thank you for sharing your children with me and being such a supportive community. Hopefully, I will be able to visit during next school year. Take good care!

Do you have a rising kindergarten student? Are you wondering about registration? Durham Public Schools is in the process of creating a new registration process in light of our current situation. In the meantime we are in the midst of planning classes for next year and would like to know who will be registering with Easley. Hopefully we will be starting in July; right now we are planning as if that is the case. Please take a moment and complete the form below.
