What do I do if I need to make a transportation change or check out early?
A request for your child to go home a different way other than normal must be submitted in goSafe through ParentVUE. We do not accept phone calls, emails, fax requests, or texts.
Checking Out Early
All student checkouts must be completed by 1:45 p.m. on regular school days and 11:45 a.m. on early release days. It is important that the 1:45 deadline is enforced as the front office staff begins dismissal procedures at 1:45 p.m. Various reports are run which need to be distributed before 2:00 p.m. Identification will be checked for all student dismissals. Students will be released only to those authorized in ParentVue.
IMPORTANT Change for Daily Transportation Information and Transportation Changes
This year, we will utilize the feature in ParentVUE for all transportation information and changes. In ParentVUE every enrolling adult needs to set up transportation information for each child. The directions for doing this are listed here-
If there is a change, you will log into ParentVUE and make the change. We will no longer accept notes for transportation changes. They must be completed in ParentVUE. We do not accept phone calls or emails for transportation changes.
For safety purposes, it is a good idea to register for ASP in Eleyo. You never know if an emergency may arise, and you need your child to stay in ASP. There is a $20 registration fee, however It will prompt you to put in payment information, you can continue without doing this and you will not be charged until your child stays in ASP. Please read the registration carefully and select the option to not pay until your student stays in ASP.

We love volunteers! We will have many opportunities for you to volunteer at school! In order to help students learn our routines and procedures we will only be allowing students and staff in the building for the first few weeks of school. We will have staff members assigned to all parts of the building to help our Eagles safely get to their classrooms.
Once we have these routines and procedures established, we welcome prearranged volunteers. Be on the lookout for more information from our PTA and Foundation soon about ways you can volunteer at Eastvalley!

What does SOAR mean?
We ask our students to make safe choices. We ask that they take ownership of their actions. We want students to achieve their goals. We ask that students respect themselves and others. This is talked about on our morning news and we recognize these positive behaviors (and many others) when we see students demonstrating them.
Each month every class will recognize a Soaring Eagle. The students will receive a certificate and small prize and will be recognized on the morning news. Each classroom winner will be entered into a drawing- one winner from each grade will get to have lunch with Dr. Spooner and Mrs. Meador. Thanks to Eastlake Chick-Fil-A for donating the meals for the students.
