Please Help Keep our Students Safe!
We need your help to keep our students safe during morning drop-off. We offer two locations for student drop-off in the mornings, or parents may park in the parking lot and walk their students inside. Parents may use the lanes at the North or South entrances to unload students. However, the parking lot is not a safe option for dropping off students. This is becoming an increasing safety issue in the mornings and also impedes the flow of traffic in the parking lot. Our Campus Officer will be out front helping to ensure student safety. We appreciate your assistance in helping keep our students safe!
Congratulations to Dr. Cross!
Our very own beloved Mrs. Cross completed her Doctorial Dissertation Defense at Texas Tech University on Friday, February 24th. She has worked extremely hard to complete this work and we are so proud of her! Dr. Cross' leadership makes East Elementary an AMAZING place to grow and learn!

Bright Like Braylon
We continue to support Braylon Reeves, a 5th grade student at East Elementary, who is battling Ewing’s Sarcoma. Recently diagnosed, Braylon is undergoing treatment at UMC Children’s Hospital. A primary tumor on Braylon's lower spine and lesions in her lungs have created challenges for this spunky little girl, but she remains a bright light in the lives of many who are cheering for her complete healing.
We’d love for you to take a look at this online store, offering LCP Pirate and Patriot gear, as well as a fun design to show support for Braylon.
All proceeds go directly to the Reeves family to help cover the medical expenses associated with Braylon’s treatment. Thank you for your support of Braylon and the Reeves family!
East Elementary's Pirate Pantry's Amazon List
Our East Elementary Pirate Pantry serves our students in many capacities. Our Communities In School Representative, Mrs. Perez and Mrs. Francis, our counselor work together to ensure that many students' physical needs are met throughout the day. Daily snacks, weekend snack bags, holiday boxes, Angel Tree gifts and extra clothes are a few of the provisions.
We are excited to announce that East Elementary Pirate Pantry now has an Amazon List. This link will allow you to see the items needed to stock the pantry as well as a convenient way to help out. We are so thankful for the partnership that we share with our East Family!

2022-2023 LCISD Meal Information
Federal funding for all students to receive free school meals is no longer available to school districts. This means that students must either pay for school meals or qualify for free or reduced-price school meals for the 2022-23 school year.
School meal prices for the 2022-23 school year are:
Grades PK -5 Lunch $3.00
Grades 6-12 Lunch $3.25
There is a possibility that your child may qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). To find out if the children in your household are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, simply complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals online or paper form.
Here is some important information about applying for free and reduced-price meals:
Any family can apply. There is no penalty for families who apply and do not qualify.
Families who have not qualified in the past may qualify this year, as income eligibility qualifications have been adjusted.
The application and free or reduced-price meal status are completely confidential. Teachers, administrators, and fellow students do not have access to this information and will have no way of knowing which children receive free and reduced-price meals.
Children who receive free or reduced-price meals have the same food options as children who do not. There are no “special lunch lines” or different menu items for these students.
Qualifying for free and reduced-price meals may provide access to many additional benefits, including:
Pandemic EBT benefits
Reduced registration fees for AP, SAT, and/or ACT tests
Free or discounted participation fees for activities
Discounted rates associated with college applications
Discounted rates on internet services
To complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals online:
If you have an existing account, select “Login”; if you do not have an existing account, select “Guest Login”
Follow the prompts to complete the application process. (The application will ask for your child’s student ID number, but if you do not know your child’s student ID number, you will be able to look it up using your child’s full name and date of birth.)
If you prefer to complete a paper Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals:
Paper applications are available at any LCISD campus office, the district’s main office, and during fall open houses.
Return your paper application to any LCISD campus office or the district’s main office.
If you have any questions about school meals or the application process for free and reduced-price meals, please contact:
