If your student has a negative balance, please pay in the office as soon as possible. If there are funds left in the account, parents may choose to receive a refund or it can be rolled over to the next school year. 5th Grade lunch balances will be moved to younger siblings, if any, or refunded. We cannot roll balances over to the middle school.  Please contact the office ONLY if you would like a refund, otherwise the balance will be rolled over for the next year.  EES OFFICE 435-283-4171
 
Readasaurus' Birthday
 
Each year we celebrate our mascot's birthday at school with a special themed party! This year, for Readasaurus' 40th Birthday, it is a Pirate Themed party, "Books are Treasures". We will celebrate Friday January 29th and although our day may look a little different than in the past, we will still focus on reading and lots of fun!
 
Every Student will receive a free book from the Library! Students may wear their pajamas to school, or dress and a pirate and bring blankets, pillows and their favorite books! We look forward to great class parties full of games and reading.  
 
Happy 40th Birthday Readasaurus!

COLD WEATHER REMINDER
 
As the weather turns colder, please remember that the main school doors
do not open until 7:40 a.m. Please be mindful when dropping your kids off

your student to school with warm coats, hats and gloves for outside recess.

Keep your child home if he or she feels sick, has a fever of 100.4 or higher, new cough, shortness of breath, decrease in sense of smell or taste, sore throat or muscle aches or pains. We ask that if anyone in your household is being tested for COVID please keep your
student home until results are confirmed. If your student has had a known exposure, we also ask that you keep your student home and contact EES school nurse, Sarah Johnson.
