Marilyn HissongWelcome back to the 2017-18 school year! I hope everyone found time over the summer to enjoy some fun and relaxation.  As your new Superintendent, I am so very honored and excited to serve our students, families and community. It is a great pleasure to welcome our returning families as well as those families who are new to East Allen County Schools. We are looking forward to another exciting and successful year for our students and staff!
We are so fortunate to have a school district which we can be proud of - with students, staff, families, and the community coming together to support our mission to inspire excellence.

One of the most motivating parts of my job is being in the schools on a regular basis connecting with students, volunteers, and staff. The Board of School Trustees and I also look forward to engaging with our parents and community members throughout this coming school year.

East Allen County Schools is pleased to be welcoming new administrators this fall – many of whom have already been with EACS serving in other roles including: Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education – Teresa Knoblauch, New Haven Intermediate School Principal – Steve Snodgrass, and Woodlan Jr. Sr. High School Assistant Principal/Athletic Director - Dave Boyce.  Administrators who are new to our district include:   Heritage Jr./Sr. High School Assistant Principal/Athletic Director – Tim Burton, and New Haven High School Dean of Students – Joseph Brinker. We look forward to the new ideas and perspectives that these talented educators will bring to their schools and the district.

For your convenience I have included a few upcoming important dates:

  • Tuesday, August 8, First Day of Student Attendance
  • Monday, September 4 – Labor Day Holiday – No Student Attendance
  • Tuesday, September 12, System-wide In-service – No Student Attendance

On behalf of all of the staff of East Allen County Schools, best wishes for a successful school year to you and your family.  Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to your child(ren).

Sincerely,

Marilyn Hissong, Superintendent
