Update from Mrs. Weber

The weeks continue to fly by! The students are all working so hard-I am so proud of all of them!


There were some important announcements from the BOE meeting Wednesday-a new English/Language arts curriculum was approved, the last day of school is officially June 16 and Mr. Saranich announced that the state will not require districts to have a distance learning option for students next year. I have included a link to the entire meeting below.


Please remember to bring in the special paper that was sent out to all of you for Teacher Appreciation Day on Tuesday May 4th. I look forward to honoring all the amazing teachers here at ESS!


As much as I love dogs and puppies, they are not allowed out of the cars on school grounds. This is a district policy for everyone's safety-thank you for following this important rule.


If someone other than yourself is picking your child up at dismissal, please communicate the expectations of how to enter the school grounds and where they should be parking as well as having identification with them. It will ensure a smooth dismissal process.


Students have the opportunity to have many mask breaks throughout the day. They are at the teacher's discretion when and where they take place, they are not scheduled like they were in the beginning of the year. Any time students are sitting silently working, eating or watching anything on the computer at their desks independently, they may pull their masks down. While students are engaged in conversations, their masks must be up and covering their nose and mouth.


PLEASE remember that ALL cars need to enter through Soundview and exit out Willoughby Road for morning drop off AND parent pick up.


Have a great weekend-Mrs. Weber

Parent SEL survey-please take by 5/21/21

New Traffic Signs Installed at ESS

Many thanks to Ben Trabka, Officer Siglinger, Public Works and John Calhoun for working together to order and get the new traffic signs installed at ESS. I am hopeful this will help to alleviate some of the traffic flow issues we have here.


Your assistance with following these traffic pattern rules would be greatly appreciated as well. ALL traffic must enter from Soundview and exit out Willoughby morning and afternoons.
