"With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility"



Labor Day No School

There will be no school on Monday, September 5th.  School will resume on Tuesday, September 6th.

Thank You

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

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 2:30 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.  

Library News 

Ellsworth Elementary School and KMS participates in the Box Tops for Education Program.  By saving Box Tops for Education Labels (like the one above) from everyday products your family can help our school library to provide better resources for our kids. Each class collects them and every few months we have a classroom competition to see who collects the most! Our first collection of the year will be Sept. 1st & 2nd.

FYI: The EES Book Fair will be October 7th-14th. This is another event to help us earn books for the library and to get books for teachers’ classrooms!

 Important info from the Office 

It is extremely important to keep the office up to date with contact information.  If you have recently changed your phone number, please remember to update it on Infinite Campus or call the office for us to do it. It is important for us to be able to reach a parent/Guardian if your student is ill or an emergency arises.  Also, you will need to sign up the new number with our emergency text alert system.  Instructions can be found on our web page at, under the “USD 327” tab.
