Back to School 2022

Welcome to the 22-23 School Year

The entire staff at East would like to welcome you to the 2022/2023 school year. We are all excited for the new school year to begin.

Below is some general information about our upcoming Schedule Pickup Days (remember, we did all of our Registration last February).

August 3rd

8:00 - 9:00 (9th Grade)

9:00 - 10:00 (8th Grade)

10:00 - 12:00 (7th Grade)

Here is what’s happening on Schedule Pickup Day:

  • You will be picking up your schedule. Please note that very limited schedule changes can be made at this time. Only in extreme circumstances, such as an inappropriate math level, changes due to summer school classes, course duplications, etc., will be made.

  • All students will be assigned a locker, but they are optional to use. Once again, students will be able to carry backpacks in the halls.

  • Purchase your Yearbook ($30) and Activity/ID Card ($12). An Activity Card is required for all students who participate in sports.

  • Add funds to lunch accounts and/or apply for the free/reduced lunch program.

  • Return athletic uniforms from previous years and donate gently used PE uniforms.

***Please remember, you can do everything online if you cannot come to the East. Schedules will be available on Infinite Campus, and all the above items can be purchased on the Hornet Webstore starting August 3rd***

We look forward to hearing about your summer experiences and meeting our new students!

Please remember that our front doors unlock at 7:15 a.m. every day for students to enter school. Please do not drop them off earlier because we do not have adult supervision until 7:15 a.m.
