Easley Weekly Update

Everything You Need to Know For The Coming Week

November 30, 2020

A Note from the principal

Hello Easley families,

I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend and was able to spend time with loved ones even though things may have looked different than usual.

As you’ve likely read, the DPS School Board has approved the implementation for a modified Plan B which would include the option of in person instruction beginning January 20th, assuming it is deemed safe to return at that time. The biggest difference is the default will be for students to remain in remote learning and families will have to opt into in person instruction. More information will be coming out from the district but I wanted to make sure you are aware of the most recent changes. As more information becomes available, I will be sure to get it to you as soon as possible.

The District has put together a COVID-19 Data Dashboard <https://www.dpsnc.net/Page/5339> with updated information regarding COVID cases in our district.

Our next School Improvement Team Meeting is Monday, December 7th at 5:30 PM.

A Message From Your PTA: Easley PTA Holiday Giving Tree Program

As the holiday season approaches, we often take time to reflect on our blessings; however, not all families find themselves in favorable circumstances and there are children within our own school community in need. As in years past, this holiday season the PTA will be coordinating a "Holiday Giving Tree" to help these students and families.

How can you help? In next week’s update you will find a sign-up and/or directions for how to purchase items. The items may be directly sent to the school or dropped off in the front office.

If you have needs within your own family or are aware of the needs of another family in our community, please contact Mrs. Hauser directly by Thursday, December 3rd. She will be able to discuss the needs and maintain complete confidentiality. It would be an honor to help this holiday season.

Thank you for making Easley a great community for our children and families.
