Dear East Allen County Schools Family,

Marilyn HissongAs we spring forward for Daylight Saving Time on March 11, we also are leaping right into our Spring sport competitions.  It will be great to watch our students compete in Track & Field, Golf, Baseball, Softball, Tennis, Soccer, and Scholastic Writing and Art competitions.

By the end of March our schools will be on Spring Break and many students and their families will be planning some time away before returning in April for the last weeks of school.  As we approach Spring Break, I respectfully request that parents honor our vacation dates and not take their students out of school for extra time to extend the break.  Honoring instructional time is extremely important since instructional time in the classroom with the teacher is a critical component of improving student academic achievement.

The Board and I understand that quality time with family is very important.  We also understand that some families like to get a head start and leave early prior to the start of a school holiday.  This year Good Friday falls right before the week of Spring Break.  Please help us in our desire to put education first by setting the example for your children that they need to meet their obligation of being in school when school is in session, and that time off is much more rewarding and enjoyable when you know that you have met the expectations that were asked of you.

As we progress through the school year, safety procedures will continue to be practiced in our buildings.  We encourage you to talk to your child about safety.  We truly want to partner with parents/guardians to help keep our students safe.  If your child sees or hears something that could harm another person, please encourage him or her to tell a trusted adult.  We do take the safety and security of our students very seriously.  We are grateful for the partnerships we have with law enforcement and other first responders.  Together we will work to keep our students and staff safe!

Finally, please remember these No Student attendance dates:
  • March 30 – Good Friday
  • April 2 - April 6 – Spring Break
