Ed Camp is on October 9th

Ed Camp is a full day of professional development hosted on October 9 for all district staff members on the Eisenhower and Catena campuses. Therefore, parking is limited and it results in many staff members parking on Burlington Road and in the surrounding neighborhoods. We appreciate your patience and consideration on October 9. We are very proud to host the day at Eisenhower. Please know we encourage staff members to carpool, but you will certainly notice an increase in volume.

Morning Drop Off

  • Morning drop off begins at 7:00am at both the front and side entrances. Students should wait with their parents until 7:00am. There is no supervision in the building prior to that time; therefore, students will not be permitted in the building until 7:00am.
  • Due to the high volume of cars dropping off in the morning, parents are encouraged to drop their child off prior to 7:30am.
  • Please note our one-way traffic pattern diagram. See attached map:
  • Drop off is curbside only at the side entrance.
  • Please maintain a speed of no more than 5 miles per hour when traveling in the parking lot, to ensure the safety of staff and students.

Locker Info

  • Students may only decorate the INSIDE of lockers. Decorating the outside of lockers is not permitted.
