Marilyn S. HissongThe beginning of this school year is off to a great start! Labor Day has come and gone and soon we will be feeling the chill of the fall temperatures. Please advise your child, if necessary, on the appropriate attire for the weather conditions. Please also pay attention to the school's dress code in the handbook.

Beginning on Tuesday, September 4th, parents were emailed a weekly progress report for their child. These reports will be emailed every following week throughout the school year. Please review these reports with your child each week and contact your child's teacher when you have questions about your child's academic progress. The sooner you and the teacher work as a team to address any problems or concerns together, the sooner we can get your child back on the right track to success.

With fall approaching, there is always the possibility that school could be cancelled due to inclement or unsafe weather conditions. We always do our best to keep students and staff safe. EACS was approved again this year by the Indiana Department of Education to offer eLearning. We will be having eLearning days on weather related cancellation days as well as teacher/staff in-service days (September 11th and February 5th). If you have questions regarding eLearning, please ask your child's teacher. Please also remember to "Like Us" on Facebook for weather updates on delays and closings.

I encourage you to support the many fall activities that are already underway at our schools. Many of our students are putting in extra hours after school and on the weekends practicing, rehearsing, performing, and competing in the many extra-curricular and co-curricular activities offered in East Allen County Schools. I encourage you to take advantage of all of the opportunities available to watch our students perform and compete as they represent their school and EACS.

EACS voluntarily participated in the Indiana Finance Authority's (IFA) Water Resource and Infrastructure Planning Program earlier this year. The program was designed to help schools identify water fixtures that should be replaced or removed. After receiving the results of the testing, EACS has replaced or removed all identified water fixtures prior to the start of the 2018-19 school year. We also retested the water fixtures to verify that everything had been corrected.

Finally, just a reminder that there is no student attendance on Tuesday, September 11th due to a staff In-Service Day in East Allen County Schools. However, this day is an eLearning day for our students. Fall break is on Monday, October 15th. There is no school for students or building staff on this day. By then, we will have already completed the first nine weeks of the 2018-19 school year!

Thank you again, for your patience as we work through the various construction projects around the District. As always, we look forward to working with you this year. Please contact us, if we can be of assistance.

Dream it. Do it.
Marilyn S. Hissong, Superintendent
