Marilyn HissongDear Families of East Allen County Schools,

During the month of November, it is always a great time to reflect on all the things that we are thankful for during the year.  I am so appreciative of the students, staff, parents, and community members of East Allen County Schools.   I see firsthand how fortunate we are to be surrounded with good people who truly want success for all of our students.  As I am out in the buildings or at community events, it never stops amazing me how focused we all are on making East Allen County Schools the best possible place to educate our students.  Thank you for everything you do to support our students and our schools!

Just a reminder that we try to communicate with you in as many ways as possible in order to find a good fit for you.  The following are some of the ways that we provide communication to you:

  • We update our East Allen County Schools Facebook page daily.  Please like us at www.eacs.k12.in.us. (It is located at the bottom of the homepage.) You will see lots of school pictures from the classroom, special events, extra-curricular activities, as well as the staff just having some fun.  Additionally you will also see weather delays and closings on Facebook.
  • We send text and e-mail alerts to parents/guardians regarding weather delays.  Staff members receive e-mails regarding fog delays. 
  • We will continue to use School Messenger for phone messages that need to be sent out for special communications from the District and from the buildings.  eLearning phone messages will be sent out when East Allen County Schools closes for the day.
  • We have updated the District’s webpage as well as each school’s webpage.  Please look for construction updates on the District’s and the schools’ webpages.
  • I post the “Superintendent Shout Outs” a couple times a month.  You can access these on the District’s main webpage as well as on Facebook.  We will try to give updates on construction projects as well as some awards and achievements that are happening around the District.
  • As a parent/guardian, if you have a concern or question, please communicate with your child’s teacher first.  If things are not resolved, please talk to the building administration (principal, assistant principal, or dean).  If things are still not settled, please feel free to call or e-mail the assistant superintendents for elementary or secondary education.  As always, I will be available for any concerns that may not be resolved along the way in this process.  We are all here to support our students and families!

Good communication is crucial to the success of our students and our school system.  We will continue to do our best to keep you informed.  If you have questions or suggestions, I am always willing to listen.  Again, I want to take a moment to just THANK all of YOU for the many things you do to support our schools.

Please remember that Thanksgiving Break will be from November 21 – November 25.
