Welcome to School Year 2018-2019!

Dear Parents,

We had a lovely day one in the ES!  The campus has come back to life with the voices and laughter of children and we are all very excited for the learning that lies ahead of us.

If you are a parent of a PK3 to Kindergarten child, the homeroom teacher will set up a time to meet you.  If you are a parent of a grade 1 to grade 5 child and have not yet had the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, please try to visit your child’s classroom tomorrow, Tuesday, between 3:45 and 4:30 P.M.  This is a time for informal conversations and introductions. More specific information about your child’s grade level program will be shared during Back to School Night; more details about this event will follow in the coming weeks.

Today’s morning drop-off went very smoothly.  Starting tomorrow if you choose to come to school with your child and want to enter the building, all parents must go through main reception with their ID card.  Only ES students are permitted to enter through the OLE gates.  We have this procedure in place to ensure the safety of each child.  Also, please make sure that your child knows how to get home at the end of the day.

We look forward to working in partnership with you this year.

Dear ES Parents, 

Are your children excited about school starting? Here we are all excited, the classrooms are ready and so are the teachers.
