Welcome Back to School.

East Elementary School 2019-2020

Hello, East families!

We are excited to meet our students and families at the Meet the Teacher night on August 12th. At Meet the Teacher night, you will be able to meet the teachers and pick up your child’s bus pass and Kidaccount pick-up card in his/her classroom. If your child’s last name begins with A-M you will be able to meet the teachers from 4:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. If your child’s last name begins with N-Z you will be able to meet the teachers from 5:00 until 6:00 p.m. If you cannot make it to Meet the Teacher night, your child’s bus pass and/or Kidaccount card will be sent home on the first day of school.

Please stop by and say hello to the PTO and visit the Kona Ice truck on the playground while you're at East. We look forward to seeing you soon!

East is a Leader In Me School


Please remember to try and schedule dentist, doctor, and other appointments at times that have the least effect on school attendance. Students are expected to maintain a 90% or higher attendance rate throughout the school year. If a student must be absent, please notify the school prior to, or on the day of the absence. Regular school attendance helps academic success.
