Important Information

  • The updated school calendar for the 22-23 school year can be found here.
  • Drop-off begins at 7:30 and car rider pick-up will begin at 3:20. All students must be picked up by 3:40.
  • Instruction begins at 7:45. Students are tardy after 7:50 a.m. The first 30 minutes of the school day is an essential time for personalized learning to occur for all students. The best way you can help your child academically is to get them to school on time!
  • If you have not filled out a free/reduced lunch application, you can do so here. Even if you think you will not qualify the time you take to fill out the form benefits our school greatly! We would appreciate it if everyone would do it.
  • Cell phone use in the car line is not permitted and is actually against the law!

Thank you Watch D.O.G.S!

Eastside Behavior Expectations Matrix

The matrix is what we use to shape our behavior! These matrixes are posted in every classroom and throughout the building. Please review the behavior expectations with your child at home, especially for the areas of the classroom, hallway, and playground! Every morning would be a great time to remind your child to be safe at school and kind to others!
