Parent Updates

  • Evergreen Mill has a new Family Liaison and she is ready to connect with you. Mrs. Daisy Arroyo will be working on Tuesday through Thursday from 8:00 - 2:30 in the main office. Please make sure to say hello and reach out if your family has any needs. Stay tuned for information about a Meet and Greet event coming soon.
  • Technology is a wonderful thing! The technology that used to be much more prevalent in middle and high school has now become widespread at the elementary level as well. Many of our students are now bringing cell phones to school, and wearing Apple or Gizmo watches. School policy is that cell phones are to be kept in your child's backpack during the school day and should only be used in case of emergency. Watches, since they stay with your child throughout the school day, have become more of a distraction this year as students are texting with parents (sometimes initiated by the parent) during the school day and during instruction. Please help us in reinforcing with your child that they are not to be texting or communicating with parents during the instructional day unless it is an emergency. I would also ask that parents follow this same policy when it comes to texting your child. We want our students to be focused on learning and building social relationships while at school. I also want to remind you that in most cases EMES/LCPS are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal items such as phones and watches.
  • Please plan to join us for our PTA meeting tomorrow night at 7 PM in the library and don't forget to join us for Bingo NIght this Friday. See below for more details.
