Student Health Care Provisions

As we resume normal operations at ECISD, we understand there may be residual effects from the Flood of '17 on some of our students that will need to be addressed.  Their mental and physical health are important to their education.  As part of our partnership with the Winnie Stowell Hospital District, ECISD will be utilizing funds already being provided by the WSHD to ramp up help for any of our students impacted by this disaster who need assistance.  Please let us know of any specific concerns you have with any trauma regarding your child, and we will work to resolve it.  You may contact Katie Sparks or Cindy Bull directly or just mention your concerns to any teacher, and he/she will get them the information.  We will be able to provide assistance ranging from basic first aid and examinations to counseling and are in a position to bring in additional staff and resources as needed during the recovery period.  I want to again thank the WSHD Board for continuing to provide funding to meet the health care needs for ECISD students in need of assistance.  It allows us to focus more of our own resources in the classroom.  

ECISD Contact for Homeless and Donations

Cindy Bull, the Special Populations Director, is the designated contact and homeless coordinator for East Chambers ISD. Donations can be coordinated with her and will be distributed to those in need including clothes and supplies. She may be reached at 409-296-8302 or 409-659-5860.

ECISD Update

East Chambers ISD will begin school on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. Buses will run at their regular times. Parents, please do not worry about school supplies if you have not already purchased them. We have plenty to start school. Also, no student will be charged for breakfast or lunch during the month of September, so don't worry about sending money unless your child wants to purchase items from the snack or a la carte lines. Depending on our suppliers of milk and produce, the menu may be temporarily modified, but we do have milk to serve with meals that will be prepared next week. We are ready and excited to get started.

The District understands there are some families who are displaced and may not be able to begin on Tuesday. No worries. They will not be counted absent until they are able to return to school. The District also understands that there are people who need their children back in school because they have to work, and they can rest assured their children are provided transportation, a hot breakfast and lunch, and a safe place.

Scott Campbell,

Superintendent ECISD

Important Announcement from East Chambers iSD

PRESS RELEASE 

(click above for complete print)

BUY A BUC A BOOK

 

As your Superintendent, I would like to introduce an initiative involving third through eighth grades at EC that we ask you to consider.  We are making a concerted effort at EC to get students to read more on their own – just for the pleasure and joy of reading.  A side effect of reading more is that students become more successful in all of their academic pursuits.  This initiative is a way for the good citizens of our community to directly impact the education of our children.  We are providing a list of books that are considered standards for children’s literature or that have been approved by at least one family-centered organization, according to the Texas Education Agency which provides the list to parents on their child’s STAAR Student Report.  I am providing the list here for you.

Information for parents for November 8, 2016

There has been some discussion about an unauthorized visitor at the Junior High Campus yesterday at the end of the day.  We did have a person come onto the campus without a pass who was briefly kneeling at one of our flagpoles; however, there was no interaction with any of our students, and he left after a few minutes.  We do not have any reason to believe that there was any threat.

​We are using the episode to practice our safety and security measures today.  There should be no alarm as we drill during the day today.  ​These drills and measures give us the practice we need to ensure everyone is safe in the event of a real threat.

​Thank you for your concern.  As always, your child's safety is of the utmost importance to ECISD.

Scott Campbell,

Superintendent ECISD
