End of First Quarter Approaching

Thursday, October 10th will mark the end of the first grading period. Please take time to check your student's grades and discuss with them how they feel they are doing as well as what goals they have for the next grading period. If you have any concerns, please be sure to reach out to your student's teachers.

Bullying Report Form

We take incidents of bullying very seriously, however, we cannot support your child if we do not know. If your child comes home complaining about a student who repeatedly says things, touches them or harasses them on social media, please make sure to report this to Mr. Meyer or complete the form below. In order for us to be able to prove "bullying," we must have documented incidents to show that it's "repeated." In order to ensure that your child doesn't also get consequences, encourage them to report these incidents, talk to our social worker or counselor, or visit Ms. Hawkins in Regulation Station rather than respond verbally or physically. Please help us make our school safe by reporting things to us and allowing us to properly track, report and hold students accountable. https://washington.evscschools.com/students/bullying_report_form
