East Allen County Schools Families,

With winter break approaching, and the first semester ending on December 18th, I wanted to take this opportunity to review some dates with you. 

Our last day of school prior to winter recess is Friday, December 18th. Schools will be closed during the winter holidays from Monday, December 21st through Monday, January 4th.   Students will return to school to begin the second semester on Tuesday, January 5th, 2021.   Our school buildings will re-open on Monday, January 4th for a teacher/staff work day, but there is no student attendance on January 4th

Although our schools will be closed during winter recess, the district’s administration offices will be open to the public on December 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 28th, 29th, and 30th from 8:00 a.m. until noon.  The offices will resume normal hours on Monday, January 4, 2021.

With winter weather upon us, I do want to take this time to revisit our policy on weather related school cancellations.  In the event school is canceled, EACS students and teachers will be expected to be on-line by 9 AM the same day of a cancellation to participate in eLearning. You will receive a message from me on days we cancel informing you that school has been canceled, and that assignments will be posted electronically by 9 AM.  Students and parents will find the teacher lesson plans in the "Announcements" section, inside the “eLearning” tile on Canvas, and/or emailed home to students/parents. Assignments given that day will be due within 5 school days after the return to school. 

Information and instructions regarding eLearning are available on the front page of the EACS website below this message.  If you have questions regarding eLearning, please contact your child’s teacher or the school principal. 

I wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year.

Best Wishes,


Marilyn S. Hissong, Superintendent of Schools
