East Allen County Schools Families,

Welcome back!  We are so excited to start the 2021–22 school year with our East Allen County Schools’ families.  As always, we ask that you please partner with us to ensure that your student(s) has the best possible school experience.  Please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter where you will receive updates from our schools as well as the District.  All school delays and closings will also be posted on Facebook and Twitter.  Another great communication resource is our East Allen County Schools’ website: www.EACS.k12.in.us  If you need information regarding the District or a school, please visit the website or call the main office.

This year will be an adventure for all of us.  I ask for your help during this school year as we navigate through the weeks and months ahead.  We will do our very best to keep students and staff safe in our buildings.  We will be using disinfectants to keep high touch areas clean throughout the day and then follow up with our daily cleaning of other areas.  As a parent or guardian, we would appreciate your support with the following:

  • Teach your child how to wash his/her hands making sure to get all areas of the hand clean.  This can also include how to apply hand sanitizer to the fingers and main parts of the hand.  “Clean hands in and clean hands out.”  Hand washing/sanitizing is a huge precautionary measure that can help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.
  • Please discuss with them what social distancing is and why it is necessary at this time.  When possible, we need children and adults to keep distance between each other.

We are looking forward to serving the students, parents, staff and communities of East Allen County Schools.  We appreciate your support as we collaborate together to provide the best possible educational experience for your child(ren): our student(s).  I hope that this 2021–22 school year proves to be a huge success for our students and staff.  Lastly, look for updates on the new East Allen Career Center throughout the year.  We are excited about these new opportunities for our high school students.
