Transparency for Trust: A Common Sense Approach

A Welcome Back Message from Superintendent Nicol.


The Team was recognized at the August meeting. The start of school couldn't be possible without the tireless work of the facilities team. All the schools are fully turned over and shining during the summer months to welcome our students and staff back on the first day not to mention all of the other projects that only the summer months allow! A big thank you goes out to the EPS Maintenance Department!

New Sensory Path at Crystal Lake School!

Liaison Miriam Underwood took a stroll along the newest addition to the CL blacktop with Principal Soto. The new Sensory Path is a neurology-research based model to provide a fun, colorful and functional addition to the hardtop for students to reset and refocus on learning and for the community to enjoy!

Refurbished Goal Posts ahead of the Knights Season!

A great project completed ahead of the Knight's Season. This was a joint effort with the Town. We look forward to seeing the Knights in action this Fall! Keep an eye out for a Board Member in the stands!
