It has been a wonderful first week at East Elementary! We are so excited about this upcoming year and I know your students will have a wonderful experience here at East. This is the first of monthly newsletters that we will share through Facebook and Skylert to help communicate campus happenings and information.

We want to take time to thank you now for the patience you have extended to us as we have been working to establish travel patterns and to finalize our procedures to ensure our students are safe and our practices are as efficient as possible. If you are new to East, please know that traffic is challenging the first few days of school but will quickly improve as procedures are fine tuned.

Please let us know if we can assist you in any way during the school year. We look forward to partnering with you to ensure this is a great year for your child and your family!

If you are cleaning out closets and find pants or shorts that you may no longer need, you can donate them to the nurse's office. We are running low on back up bottoms for students that may need a change of clothes during the school day. We could use both girl and boy bottoms in all sizes. Thank you!
