Notes from the Principal

March 1, 2019

 

Dear Eagleside Community:

 

Thank you for all of you who were able to attend Parent/Teacher conferences during February. The highest levels of student achievement are only possible when efforts are coordinated between home and school. To this end, it is our goal to meet with 100% of parents at each conference opportunity. If you were unable to keep your appointment, please contact your child’s teacher to schedule a meeting.

 

Link Road Update: Martin Marietta is the contractor for the Link Road Construction Project.  Their project manager stopped by and asked that I share a quick update. The project has been under a temporary shutdown due to frozen ground.  The project will begin again as soon as the weather permits. He also mentioned that vehicles are currently travelling on temporary lanes and these do not represent the quality of the final project.

 

Speaking of Winter Weather: We take students outside every day that the temperature is above 20 degrees, including wind chill. Please ensure that your child is appropriately dressed for the weather. In Colorado, the weather changes frequently and drastically. It is always possible to take a jacket off if you have it, but its not possible to put on a jacket that you do not have! Also, we have collected a many coats, sweatshirts hats and gloves in our lost and found. If you are missing anything check there! Our lost and found is outside of the cafeteria.

 

Drop-off lane concerns: All parents dropping off students in the morning should pull as far forward as possible before stopping to let out children. Stopping in front of the walkway doubles the amount of time it takes for students to be dropped off. We should be able to accommodate 14 vehicles unloading simultaneously, which would speed up the drop off procedure significantly.

 

Parent Survey: Please complete our Parent Survey. This information informs both the school and district levels to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our community. So far, our response rate is well below last year’s totals. Here’s the link:

As always, it is our pleasure serving your family. If you have questions or concerns, please
