11-18-16 Newsletter


NEWSLETTER ONLINE:  This is the second year of change for the newsletter being posted on-line for parents to access it. The office has included the instructions on how to access the newsletter and the school menus.      Go to usd211.org     Click on EES news tab on the right side     Scroll down until the most current newsletter or menu displays on the screen.       If you have any questions, please call the office.
PROGRESS REPORTS:  Progress reports should have arrived home on Wednesday, November 16th.  Be sure to visit with your child(ren) about the report.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
SCHOOL DISMISSAL:  School will be dismissed at the regular time on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016 for the beginning of Thanksgiving Break.  Please enjoy the holiday, and be safe.
BAND CONCERTS:  The 6th grade will have their concert on Thursday, December 1st, 2016.   The 5th grade will have their concert on Friday, December 2nd, 2016.   Both performances will be held in the EES band room, and will start at 1:40 PM.
TRANSPORTATION:  A special thanks to the USD 211 bus drivers and to the bus transportation director Jim Jackson for transporting our students in a safe and efficient manner.  Your child(ren) are in safe hands with these dedicated people.  USD 211 employs four crossing guards who help insure that children crossing the highway are able to do so in a safe manner.  We should all be thankful that we have a great group of people helping our students be safe in their journey to and from school.
BUS PICK UP AND DROP OFF:  Last week we started using the West parking lot for the buses. Walkers and car pickups will still occur on the East side of the school.  The office would like to remind parents to let the school know before 3:00 PM if there are any changes in a student’s schedule.  The office can get that message to the students before dismissal and hopefully avoid any potential conflicts after school.
