EISENHOWER SECURITY: Visitors to the school will need to be buzzed into the office after entering the front door and standing in the vestibule area.  We are going to be putting in an intercom system at the front door for visitors to identify themselves upon entering the school. We are just starting this process so we ask for patience in this new procedure, but when we get everything worked out, it is our hope that the school will be more secure during the day.  Please remember that once the school day starts, all visitors to the building need to come through the front doors to sign in and receive their visitors badge if they continue into the building. Thanks for your support in this development.

SUMMER BIRTHDAYS:  If your child celebrates his/her birthday during the summer, arrangements have been made for a specific day to celebrate the months of June, July and August birthdays.  June birthdays will be held on Monday, April 30, 2018.
