Greeting Eastridge Families,

We are excited to provide students with technology to enhance their learning experiences in the MSD of Warren Township. Each student has been assigned a device for classroom use. Students in grades K-2 have been assigned an iPad and students in grades 3 & 4 have been assigned a Chromebook. Devices will be kept at school and charged in a classroom cart. Students are responsible for proper care and use of their device.


Each device is covered by a district-sponsored insurance program for damage. This keeps charges for both intentional and accidental damages low. Both purposeful and accidental damage will be charged at a reduced rate.


Repair ~ Family Charge

1st-$5

2nd-$25

3rd-$50

More than 3-The actual cost of repair or $50


How does the district ensure student safety with the use of student devices?Warren Township employs a variety of methods to manage the student devices including Internet filtering, and application restrictions. Internet Filtering software collects information about the sites that students access. Whether a use is off task or appropriate depends on the time of day, the student’s schedule, and the teacher’s instructions. If a student attempts to access an inappropriate site, a notification is generated and the filtering software blocks the viewing of that site.


Students are also taught about appropriate use and care for their devices by their classroom teachers. Specific age-appropriate lessons have been created for use with all students.


Warmest regard,

Mrs. Johnson, Principal

Parent/Teacher Conferences

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES are coming up on Tuesday, October 1. These are very important meetings with your child’s teacher. Please look for a letter coming home with your child(ren) that will give more information about conference times. Teachers will discuss student progress and performance as well as distribute report cards during these conferences. We ask parents to make every attempt to attend a conference with their child(ren)’s teachers

Ice Cream Sale

Students LOVE eating ice cream on Fridays! Our PTA will be selling ice cream beginning this Friday, September 13th - October 4th. To purchase ice cream students must bring in $1.00.

Parent Portal - Important Information

You can access the Parent Portal registration form by clicking here. You can also pick up a copy in the school office - completed forms must be turned in to the Eastridge Main Office.


As a parent or guardian of a student attending a Warren school, you have online access to your child or children's grades, attendance, discipline, and academic history. The student and parent portal has been upgraded to Tyler SIS Student 360. This new portal offers parents, students and district staff online access to student information via the Web on PCs or tablets or on a smartphone application — providing comprehensive functionality with a touch-friendly, intuitive interface.

You must obtain a username and password from Eastridge Elementary in order to access your child's information. Once your information is verified (after completing the form linked above), a username and password will be generated by the school and given to you.

Attendance Matters, Facts Matters, Information Matters

Why Attendance Matters:


  • Two missed days per month adds up to being a half-year behind by the time a child reaches 4th grade.
  • Poor attendance can influence whether a child reads proficiently by the end of the 3rd grade. Students not reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade may experience retention.
  • Single most important factor for student achievement and graduation vs dropout rate is student attendance.


Attend today. Achieve tomorrow.

Your child will not be excluded if you have a scheduled appointment. You will have until the appointment date to complete the shots. If you have any questions or concerns please call Nurse Marlene.
