Grandparents Are Invited for Lunch Tuesday, September 27th and Thursday, September 29th

Grandparents’ Day at Ebinport Elementary will be celebrated Tuesday, September 27th and Thursday, September 29th. Grandparents of students in grades kindergarten, second and fifth grades are invited to join their grandchildren for lunch on Tuesday. Grandparents of students in grades third, first, and fifth are invited to join their grandchildren for lunch on Thursday.

The menu for both days will be Salisbury steak with gravy or corndog, rice, green beans, fruit and tea. Kindergarteners begin lunch at 10:30. First graders begin lunch at 11:40, and second graders begin lunch at 11:25. Third graders begin lunch at 11:05. Fourth graders begin lunch at 12:00, and fifth graders begin lunch at 12:20. All lunch times are approximate, and the classes are staggered within the grade levels.

Walk to School and Litter Pick Up

Join the Ebinport community at the Sperry Van Ness Parking Lot, 1926 India Hook Road on October 5th, 2016 at 7:15 a.m., for National Walk to School Day!

Gloves, vests, trash bags and grabbers will be available for anyone who would like to pick up litter along the route. Parents and guardians are asked to accompany their children to school. See you at 7:15 a.m. October 5th!

This activity will be cancelled if raining.

Lost and Found Items

Parents are asked to please label all clothing, especially jackets, as well as lunch boxes and backpacks. On the last Friday of every month, all lost and found items will be displayed to students.

Donations of the unclaimed lost and found items will take place on the following first Tuesday of each month.

Lunch with Students

If parents choose to have lunch with their student, they should have lunch with their student ONLY. Children should not invite a friend to the stage to have lunch with them due to the numerous food allergies we have in the building.

Thank you for keeping all of our children safe.

Procedures for Visiting Ebinport

The Ebinport office is open for school business from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. No students will be dismissed after 2:00 p.m.

Please remember to bring a state issued picture ID when picking up your child early or entering the school at any time.
