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.

Football Games cancelled for this week

From Coach Sutherland: The EC/Kelly football game has been canceled and we will make an announcement in the next couple of days about football practice resuming next week.

Important Announcement from East Chambers iSD

As our community continues to deal with the storm, ECISD has determined that it is in the best interest of the people to delay the first day of school until Tuesday, September 5th. This week is a time for neighbors helping neighbors, assessing damage, and cleaning up.  There is a larger lesson for our students to learn this week than they might experience in the classroom.  Have empathy for one another, and step up to lend a helping hand.  Stay safe.

 

Como nuestra comunidad continúa lidiando con la tormenta, ECISD ha determinado que es en el mejor interés de la gente a retrasar el primer día de escuela hasta el martes, 5 de septiembre. Esta semana es un tiempo para los vecinos ayudar a los vecinos, evaluar el daño, y la limpieza. Hay una lección más grande para nuestros estudiantes para aprender esta semana de lo que podrían experimentar en el aula. Tener empatía por el otro, y dar un paso para ayudar. Mantenerse a salvo.

Superintendent Announces "Buy a Buc a Book" Program bookaneer

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.
