A few announcements


  • Instruction begins at 7:45 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.
  • If you have any transportation changes, please make sure that you let Mrs. Whitney know by 2:30pm. This ensures that she has enough time to alert teachers of the change. Teachers may not check communication throughout the day, so changes need to go through the office.
  • Information about the school day and the district's response to COVID-19 can be found here.
  • The updated school calendar for the 2021-22 school year can be found here.
  • Parents of students in grades 3-5, please revisit with your child the school's dress code! Tank tops must be at least 3 fingers wide and shorts must be fingertip length. Thank you for your help with this!

You know those old books on your bookshelf that your kids don't read anymore? The ones taking up space that you'd love to relocate to a new home where they will be loved as much as your children loved them?! We will take those off your hands! If you have any books you would like to donate you may send them to Eastside! #EESlivingthedream #GreenbrierProud
