SCHOOL DISMISSAL: School will dismiss at the regular time on Tuesday, November 20th , 2018 for the beginning of Thanksgiving Break. Please enjoy the holiday, and be safe.
BAND CONCERTS: The 6th grade will have their concert on Thursday, November 29th. The 5th grade will have their concert on Friday, November 30th. 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.
A LETTER WILL BE SENT HOME TO ALL PARENTS OF STUDENTS AT EES ABOUT CONCERNS THAT ARE OCCURRING ON THE SHUTTLE BUS BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL. IF THERE CONTINUES TO BE DISCIPLINE ISSUES ON THE BUS THAT DISTRACTS THE DRIVER FROM DELIVERING THE STUDENTS IN A SAFE MANNER, THEN THE ADMINISTRATION AT SCHOOL WILL MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE SUTTLE BUS SERVICE TO DISCONTINUE.
THIS DOES NOT AFFECT ROUTE BUSES, ONLY THE SHUTTLE SERVICE IN TOWN.
BUS PICK UP AND DROP OFF: The office would like to remind parents to let the school know as soon as possible if there are any changes in a students schedule. The office can get that message to the students before dismissal and hopefully avoid any potential conflicts after school.
