Happy New Year to our EACS Family! 

Welcome back from winter break!  I hope everyone had a relaxing winter break filled with quality time with family and friends.  As we start the new year, it is a fresh start for all of us to put forth our personal best as we begin the second semester.

Our staff, including myself, look forward to supporting the success of each and every student.  You have my commitment of working with employees, families, students and community members to focus our efforts on providing the best educational opportunities possible for the children who attend our schools.  The education of EACS students is our highest priority and I thank you for entrusting your child’s education to us as we will work to ensure their success. 

As you know winter and the cold/flu season are here.  We continually try to educate our students on preventative measures to help keep everyone stay as healthy as possible.  Please continue to practice the 3 C’s with your children:

  1.  Cover your cough and sneeze with the inside of your elbow and not your hands
  2.  Wash your hands often
  3. Contain your germs by staying home when you are sick. (Fever over 100 degrees, coughing, sore throat, body aches, etc.)

As we start January, there is the potential for hazardous weather conditions.  Please check our website, District Facebook page, District Twitter (EACStweets), or tune into television/radio to hear weather related school delays or cancellations.  As a reminder, EACS teachers are expected to post eLearning activities on the day of a closing by 9:00 a.m.  Students are expected to participate in eLearning on days when we cancel.  If you have questions regarding this, please contact your child’s teacher or school’s administration.

I am also including a few reminders regarding some upcoming dates.

  • Monday, January 20, 2020 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day – No Student Attendance
  • Tuesday, February 11, 2020 – District In-service Day – No Student Attendance – eLearning Day
  • Monday, February 17, 2020 – President’s Day – No Student Attendance

Again, welcome back to school for the second semester!  My wish for all of you is that 2020 is the best year ever!  As always, if you need anything, please feel free to contact our staff or me.

Dream It! Do It!
