The second day parents will be able to walk to gym with their child. Starting the 3rd day of school , kindergarten parents walking their child in will drop off at the foyer (unless they are eating breakfast). There will be staff on duty to monitor students walking to ensure they get to the gym safely. Parents walking in may come through the front door only! The car line drop-off will stay open until 8AM. Please note we have a car line for the morning only. Thank you, parents, for your help and cooperation!

Kindergarten car riders will be picked up at 3:10 p.m. in either the cafeteria or activity room (directly across from cafeteria). You will find out the location after you know your child's teacher. All will enter the front door and exit the side. There is no car line in the afternoon!

If your child is riding the bus for the first time, you must call THE BUS BARN and then ECC. The bus barn number (903) 881 -4110. You must call both! Please call the office rather than emailing or sending notes/texts to teachers. This helps us ensure that everyone who needs to know about the change is aware!

Thank you for watching this parent orientation! We are very excited to have your family joining our ECC family! I encourage you to build a strong home-school connection. Build a relationship with your child's teacher. All of the teachers at ECC truly love their students and desire to have a connection with their parents. If you have any questions or issues that arise during the year, I encourage you to email or call your child's teacher during their conference time. If it is a matter that needs my assistance, I am glad to help as well!


We want your child's first learning experience to be a positive one! We believe in working together with you to help make that happen. We encourage you to read with or to your child daily and work on any resources the teacher sends home. Your child will learn early on to value learning and their education.


Looking forward to a great year!

Snack Guidelines

Please see the information below regarding approved snack guidelines. Your teacher will send home a snack schedule for each month. By state law, we have guidelines governing what we can serve. If you send a snack such as cookies, fruit juices that are not 100% juice, or anything else that is primarily sugar, we will have to send it back home. We have 3 "party days" a year that we can serve food outside of these guidelines (Christmas, Valentines, and End of Year parties). Birthdays can be celebrated with cupcakes or cookies as well.
