East High Street Family Flyer

Week of February 21st and February 28th

From the Principal's Desk...

Good Afternoon, East High Families!

Thank you for the warm welcome last week as I joined the team at East High Elementary.

I wanted to introduce and share a little about myself.

My name is Ms. Moffett. I am coming to you from Penn State Harrisburg, where I have been an adjunct professor helping the next generation of teachers prepare for their future jobs. Prior to that, I was an elementary teacher in the Palmyra School District where I taught 1st and 5th grades.

At home, I have three little loves of my own. We like to go on adventures together, play games, read books, do arts and crafts, and spend a lot of time outdoors. I enjoy running and playing sports, reading, and spending time with friends and family.

I look forward to meeting each of you during the next few months!

Below are updates for the next two weeks at East High Street Elementary.

Thank you!

Megan Moffett, East High Street Principal

East High Street Procedures for the 2021-2022 school year!

Please review the below information which will outline all of East High's procedures for the 2021-2022 school year. Here will find specific information on arrival/dismissal, car rider, lunch, attendance/educational trip requests, reporting absences and many more topics.

Please contact the office if you have any questions.

Changes in transportation or schedule

If you need to change the transportation for your child, please email the attendance email and your child’s teacher with your request prior to 9:00 AM. You can also call the main office at 717-361-0099 with the change.

Please note: If you have a transportation change after 9:00 AM, please only call the main office and DO NOT email the teacher or the attendance email. We cannot guarantee the email will be received throughout the day.

We send children home the way they are assigned so any changes in transportation need to be communicated in a timely manner.

  • Call the East High office (717-361-0099) and press option 7. Please state your name, your child’s name, teacher’s name and reason for absence.
  • Email the attendance email and provide your name, your child’s name, teacher’s name and reason for absence.

Educational Trips for the 2021-2022 School Year

If your family is taking an educational trip during the school year a form must be completed at least 5 days prior of leaving for the trip. This is so we can ensure teachers have adequate time to prepare any materials you child(ren) may need.

Information about the Form:

  • The completed form must be received in the building principal's office at least five (5) days in advance of the tour or trip.
  • Check the status of your request on EASD's online Community Portal on the attendance link. You are able to check future absences.
  • Forms that are received with less than 5 days notice may be coded as illegal absences

Parent/Guardian Technology Center

EASD students use electronic devices to access online resources for classroom instruction. Students in grades K-2 use iPads and Chromebooks while students in grades 3-12 use Chromebooks. Upon registering in the district, student technology accounts are created automatically so they are able to log in to district devices and access online instructional resources. Please read the information in the Technology Center to learn more about the student devices, technology accounts and troubleshooting measures.

Parents are encouraged to create their own technology accounts in our school systems to access their student's demographic information, digital report cards, and daily classroom instruction and grades.

For more specific information, such as where to find your student's Schoology Parent Access code please email techsupport@etownschools.org.
