East Allen County Schools Families,

It has been an extraordinary start to the school year because of each of you - the students, staff, parents, and community of East Allen County Schools.   I see firsthand how fortunate we are to be surrounded with good people who truly want success for all of our students.  As I am out in the buildings or at community events, it never stops amazing me how focused we all are on making East Allen County Schools the best possible place to educate our students.  Thank you for everything you do to support our students and our schools!

Please look for the following communications:

  • We continue to update our East Allen County Schools Facebook page.  Please like us at www.eacs.k12.in.us. (It is located at the bottom of the homepage.) You will see lots of school pictures from the classroom, special events, extra-curricular activities, as well as the staff just having some fun.  Additionally you will also see fog delays and closings on Facebook.
  • We have a District Twitter account.  Please follow me at EACSTweets.  Again, I will post delays and closings here first.
  • We will continue to use School Messenger for phone messages that need to be sent out for special communications from the District and from the buildings.  ELearning phone messages will be sent out when East Allen County Schools closes for the day.
  • We have updated the District’s webpage as well as each school’s webpage.
  • I will be doing the “Superintendent Shout Outs” a couple times a month.  You can access these on the District’s main webpage as well as on Facebook.
  • As a parent/guardian, if you have a concern or question, please communicate with your child’s teacher first.  If things are not resolved, please talk to the building administration (principal, assistant principal, or dean of students).  If things are still not settled, please feel free to call or e-mail the assistant superintendents for elementary or secondary education.  As always, I will be available for any concerns that may not be resolved along the way in this process.  We are all here to support our students and families!
  • A few people have asked about second semester and what format instruction will be offered to students.  While we are waiting for direction from the Governor, state and local health departments and the CDC, please know that we are working behind the scenes to start planning for the upcoming semester.  We knew at the beginning of this year that it would be a challenging year but your support and encouragement has been unwavering.  Thank you so much!

Good communication is crucial to the success of our students and our school system.  We will continue to do our best to keep you informed.  If you have questions or suggestions, I am always willing to listen.

Dream it. Do it.
