Safety and Security
Safety is a top priority for the Lincoln County R-III school district. ECEC has held several drills already this year focusing on earthquake, tornado, intruder and fire. The kids have done amazingly well. A slip of paper will be sent home with your child when we have a drill so you can discuss what happened with your child. The police department will be here for most drills to ensure our success and over any help or guidance. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the office.

Christmas Adopt A Family
A Christmas Tree will be in our lobby by mid-November. We will hang ornaments on the tree with items listed that are needed for the families we have chosen to "adopt" this holiday season. Please stop by and see if you are able to help by purchasing an item. You just need to return the item to the office with the ornament taped to it. No need to wrap. We will take care of that. Thank you in advance. We at the ECEC want every family to have a wonderful, safe, healthy, and happy holiday season.

Volunteer Guidelines from Central Office
Background checks need to be completed every school year by volunteers in the schools. Volunteers are encouraged to complete all volunteer requirements at the beginning of each school year. Background checks must be COMPLETED for volunteer opportunities by the first of the month before the event/opportunity. Once the forms are updated, volunteer information and forms will be available on the website, peachjar, open house, and the school office.
Volunteers and Visitors are two different types of guests in our schools.
Volunteers are defined as any individual that will be assisting staff and/or students in the school setting. Examples include assisting with or attending a classroom party, a class field trip or supervising students without a staff member present. Volunteers must have a paid background check.
Volunteer background checks must be completed at the 1st of the month prior to the experience that prompted the check. (I.E.: a trip that will occur on October 22nd must have forms submitted and ran no later than October 1st).
Visitors are also welcome and encouraged. At times, visitors are invited guests such as grandparents or veterans. Visitors to our schools do not need a paid background check although you can encourage frequent visitors to do so. A visitor is defined as any individual who will be in an assembly area such as an auditorium or gymnasium for the purpose of a play, assembly, etc.
All visitors must present a photo identification to front office staff AND be listed as a point of contact for the student they are visiting. **If the person is not listed, the parent must give their permission for the visit.
Visitors are also allowed in the cafeteria to eat lunch with their child. All visitors are required to report to the office, present photo identification and sign in when entering the building. All visitors must be supervised by a camera or a staff member.
In accordance with Missouri State law, persons listed on the sex offender registry may not be present in any school building, on district property, in any district vehicle utilized to transport students, or be present at school activities at any time.
The Nightly Reading Record Sheet is an amazing way to make sure reading is a priority in your house. When your child returns a monthly reading calendar completely filled in, they will receive a fun book and a prize to take home. PLEASE take the time to print this calendar for your child. http://www.troy.k12.mo.us/domain/88
Monthly participation allows your child to learn and also spend quality time with you.
