Marilyn HissongWith winter break approaching, and the first semester ending on December 20th,  I wanted to take this opportunity to review some dates with you.  Our last day of school prior to winter recess is Wednesday, December 20th. Schools will be closed during the winter holidays from Thursday, December 21st through Wednesday, January 3rd.  Students will return to school to begin the second semester on Thursday, January 4th, 2018.  However, our school buildings will re-open on Wednesday, January 3rd for a teacher work day, but there is no student attendance on January 3rd.  Although our schools will be closed during winter recess, the district’s administration offices will be open to the public December 21st – 22nd, and December 27th – 29th, from 8:00 a.m. until noon.  The offices will be closed December 25th, 26th, January 1st and 2nd.

With winter weather upon us, I do want to take this time to revisit our policy on weather related school cancellations.  In the event school is cancelled, EACS students and teachers will be expected to be on-line by 9 AM the same day of a cancellation to participate in eLearning. You will receive a message from me on days we cancel informing you that school has been cancelled, and that assignments will be posted electronically by 9 AM.  Students and parents will find the teacher lesson plans in the "Announcements" section of Canvas and/or emailed home to students/parents. Assignments given that day will be due within 5 school days after the return to school.

Information and instructions regarding eLearning are available on the front page of the EACS website below this message.  If you have questions regarding eLearning, please contact your child’s teacher or the school principal.

I wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year.

Best Wishes,

Marilyn S. Hissong, Superintendent of Schools
