Changes to End-of-Day Transportation Requests Policy at EPS

The front office ladies would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding with the new policy in place. It is saving them time during the day and allowing them to focus on the students and staff in the building.


PLEASE READ CAREFULLY


There is now a dedicated line for all dismissal changes for the end of the day. When parents call the front office, listen carefully to the menu selections and choose #7 for dismissal changes.


The line will automatically go to a dedicated voicemail. Parents are to leave a detailed message with the information needed, including their child's name, the teacher's name, and any bus numbers or names necessary.


All changes MUST be recorded by 2:00 p.m.


At 2:00, the office staff will listen to all of the recordings, write out all passes, and deliver them to the classroom by the end of the day.


The office staff will NOT return messages for confirmation. There simply isn't enough time for this.


Please DO NOT email the front office staff or your child's teacher with changes. There is always the possibility that the person you emailed will not check email in time or is absent that day. Guest teachers do not have access to the teacher's email.


Sending a written note in with your child is still acceptable. Please make sure it is DATED, SPECIFIC, has a CONTACT NUMBER, and is SIGNED by a parent/guardian/adult.


Please help the front office staff at EPS with this time-saving policy! This will free them up to work on other necessary tasks and be more available to the students, staff, and families who come through the front doors.

Winter Surveys for Title 1 at EPS & EIS

Please take a couple of minutes to fill out one or both of these surveys for our Title 1 directors. If you have a child at each building, please fill out each survey. Thank you!
