Eagle Press

August 23rd

Welcome Back!

Dear Eisehnower Families,

We hope this letter finds you relaxed and recharged for the new school year! On behalf of our entire staff I’d like to welcome our new and returning students to Eisenhower Elementary for the 2022-2023 school year. Much preparation has gone into planning, classroom design, and ensuring a successful start to the new year. Our staff looks forward to welcoming our Eagles back so we can continue to pave the way to success. We hope the information below may address any questions you may have at this time.

Staff has given careful consideration to each child’s placement for the 22-23 school year. By doing so we have created classrooms that are balanced both academically and socially to help ensure each child’s success. Student placement letters will be emailed to families on August 24th.

The first day of school will be on Monday, August 29th. This is a half day and we begin at 11:30. No lunch or snacks will be served. I’ve attached door assignments below so your child will know where to line up daily. Please know staff will also be out front and visible to direct students as necessary this week. School-Aged Child Care (SACC) is available to registered families on this day.

The Eagle Press will continue to be published weekly and emailed home on Sundays. A list of important August/September dates may be found below in the meantime. You can also follow us on Facebook - @EaglesFraser.

In closing, please know the staff and I are here and look forward to partnering with you this year to ensure your child’s success! It is an honor and privilege to serve as your principal and I eagerly look forward to meeting each of you this year. Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at any time!

Mrs. Kelley

Bus stop information will be available online for the 2022–2023 school year starting August 29. You can access your child’s bus stop information by visiting www.fraser.k12.mi.us. Click on the "Bus Stops" link and enter your address to retrieve your child’s bus stop information.

It is very important to check your child’s bus stop, as routes have been modified for the 2022–2023 school year.

Students will be assigned a route number in lieu of a bus number. The route number is located on the left side of the entry door. To ensure transportation, all students must be at their bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time.

Please review with your child the bus rules found on the Transportation Department’s website.

Does your child have medical needs?

If your child has specific medical needs, please reach out to the main office prior to the start of school. In order to administer medication, consent forms must be completed. Consent forms for prescription medications must include dosage and frequency information signed by a physician. Medication, including inhalers, must be stored in the main office and not in backpacks or pockets. In addition, if your child has a medical plan, it will need to be updated for the 22-23 school year.

Please find medication forms linked below for your convenience.
