Update from Mrs. Weber

I am not sure where the month of May went to! Time flies when you are having fun! We have so many exciting events coming up in the next few weeks!


All library books and Chromebooks must be returned by Tuesday June 15th. Report cards will not be distributed until all items are returned.


Masks must be worn at all times by all adults when on school grounds. This is a state policy. I thank you in advance with your cooperation with this, especially when myself or ESS staff may need to remind you.


All students must be in their seats by 9:00-the start of the school day. Drop off doors will close at 8:59 to ensure everyone is at their classrooms by that time. If the door is closed, please drive around to the front and we will let your child in.


Only ESS students and staff are allowed on the playground equipment from 9:00-3:45 (or 9:00-1:50 on early dismissal days). You are welcome to stay after pick up time.


Please remember that if you have plans to move before the start of the new school year, let the main office know. This helps us in making class lists. The staff and I devote much time and thought when placing your child in a class. Parental requests for specific teacher placements will not be considered; however if there are any special circumstances regarding class placement, please notify me via email.


As much as I love dogs and puppies, they are not allowed out of the cars on school grounds. This is a district policy for everyone's safety-thank you for following this important rule.


If someone other than yourself is picking your child up at dismissal, please communicate the expectations of how to enter the school grounds and where they should be parking as well as having identification with them. It will ensure a smooth dismissal process.


Students have the opportunity to have many mask breaks throughout the day. They are at the teacher's discretion when and where they take place, they are not scheduled like they were in the beginning of the year. Any time students are sitting silently working, eating or watching anything on the computer at their desks independently, they may pull their masks down. While students are engaged in conversations, their masks must be up and covering their nose and mouth.


PLEASE remember that ALL cars need to enter through Soundview and exit out Willoughby Road for morning drop off AND parent pick up.


Have a great weekend-Mrs. Weber
