Dr. FolksWelcome back from winter break!  It’s exciting to have our students back in school as we begin the second semester of the 2016-17 school year!  As we step into a new year returning to school can feel like a chance for a new beginning and a fresh start.  We hope that everyone is committed to putting forth their best effort as we begin the second half of the school year.

Everything we do in East Allen County Schools is designed to support the success of each and every child.  You have my commitment that I will continue to work with employees, families, students and community members to focus our efforts on providing the best educational opportunities possible for the children who attend our schools.  The education of these students is our highest priority and I thank you for entrusting your child’s education to us as we will work together to ensure their success.

Be reminded that winter and the cold and flu season is now upon us. As a district, we continually take preventative measures to keep everyone as healthy as possible. Please continue to practice the 3 C’s:

  • Cover your cough and sneeze with the inside of your elbow and not your hands
  • Cleanse your hands frequently
  • Contain your germs by staying home when you are sick. (Fever >100, coughing, sore throat, body aches, etc.)

As you know, the winter months also bring the possibility of hazardous weather conditions.  Please check our website, tune in to television/radio to hear the weather related school delays or cancellations. – Be reminded, EACS students and teachers will be expected to be on-line by 9 AM the same day of a cancellation to participate in electronic learning. As always, 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. 

I also want to remind you of a few upcoming dates:

  • January 16 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day – No Student Attendance
  • February 7 – System-wide In-Service – No Student Attendance
  • February 20 – President’s Day – No Student Attendance

Again, welcome back to school!  I hope this year is the best year yet for you! 

Dream It!  Do It!
Dr. Kenneth H. Folks, Superintendent of Schools
