Thank You

We would like to thank the PTO for organizing the Back to School Ice Cream Social.  We appreciate your efforts!

All doors are locked during school hours

If you plan to visit our building at any time, you must enter and exit through the North door by the office. You need to push the button on the door entry system. An office person will respond and unlock the door for you.  We also ask that you stop in the office to sign in and out. You will be given a visitors badge when you sign in. If you are without a badge, you may be stopped in the hall by a staff member and asked to return to the office.

PLAY -  seeds of change

Students will attend a play called the Seeds of Change on Monday, September 17.  It is performed by the Creede Repertory Theatre and is provided to us through a grant by the Dane Hansen Foundation.  It is at 1:45pm at the PAC.  Students and staff will walk to the PAC that day.  After the play, students will walk back to EES for normal dismissal.

After school Plans and Messages

Our main focus is to get your student to and from school safely.  Please make sure your students know what their plans are for the day before they come to school.  We know that plans do change occasionally, if so, please call before 2:00 PM to help us make sure we get your message to your child’s teacher.  Please discuss with your child what to do if their ride home is not here when they get off the bus or out of school.  Let them know that the office is a safe place to go if they are not sure what to do.  We will not let students use the phone at EES to make new plans with friends after school.  We will instruct them to “stay with the original plans”. 

Drop Off & Pick Up Reminder

When driving your students to school, please observe the following rules:

If you pull up on the school side of the street, students need to exit the vehicle on the curb side, not the street side.  If you pull up across the street from the school, the students need to exit the vehicle on the curb side then go to the crosswalk corner where they can cross the street safely with the help of the crossing guard.  Students may NOT cross in the middle of the street.  Also, it is strongly encouraged that children not arrive to school before 7:25 AM. The front of the school building on Third Street is an unloading zone only, no parking at all. 

Lunch VISITORS

Parents and other guests are welcome to eat a school lunch if we are notified (472-5554) by 8:30 a.m. on the day before you wish to eat. Lunches are prepared at the high school so the cooks need to know ahead how many meals to prepare and deliver to EES. The cost of an adult lunch is $3.95. You have the option of paying for your lunch out of your child’s account as long as the account has a positive balance. If you prefer to pay in cash please bring the exact amount. Please sign in at the office before you eat with your child.

VISION screenings

We will be doing vision screenings on September 11th and on September 13th.   

Dental screenings

We will be providing free oral health screenings on September 19th.  In addition to the screening, fluoride varnish applications will also be available at no cost to the student. The form will need to be returned to the school by September 4th.
