    Welcome Back                                                                                                                  

    How to come and go:

     

    Our parking lot is closed to moving traffic.  There is no curbside drop-off.  Only handicapped placards will be accommodated with access to parking.  Children will be able to walk in the paved driveway circle, but not between the cars.  It is strongly recommended that you ride bikes or walk to school.  There is limited parking around our campus.  All who ride bikes are expected to walk bikes and scooters while on campus.  Bike parking is available at our bike racks.  Students will need to line up and wait their turn.  There will be help at the bike racks to direct you where to put your bike.  All gates into the campus will be labeled with numbers 1-9 beginning with the gate to the Kindergarten yard and moving around the parking circle clockwise.  Please go directly to your gate.  There are dots or airplanes outside each gate to use for lining up.  Find spot and stand there.  It is important not congregate or cluster together to chat.  Teachers will check each student in at the gate and students will move to line up dots inside the gate while the teacher checks in the other students.  There are no parents or volunteers inside the gates.  Again, we ask that parents do not congregate or cluster together to talk. 

    At the end of the day, children will be escorted by their teacher back to the same gate and dismissed.  Transitional K and Kindergarten will sign children out to families.  First grade teachers will dismiss children with visual recognition of their parent or caregiver.  Grades 2-5  will be dismissed when they reach the gate.  It is recommended you make a specific meeting place to meet your child either off campus or at the perimeter to alleviate potential crowding at gates.

    CALLING ALL ARTISTS!

    Our annual yearbook art contest is here! This year's theme will be: PUTTING THE PIECES TOGETHER. We want to celebrate how the Earhart community has come together to make this unique year work for our students and families. 

    Please have your child create a work of art (plain white 8 1/2 x11 paper) which reflects the theme. The picture needs to be VERTICAL to be considered. We will have 2 winning entries this  year. One will be on the front cover of the yearbook and one will be on the inside cover of the yearbook. Each of the 2 winners will receive a free soft cover yearbook. 

    DEADLINE: Due to COVID, all entries will need to be dropped off in the "Yearbook Art Contest" Box which will sit outside the school office during work hours on FRIDAY MARCH 12 from 8-4. If you are unable to drop it off on that day, please email Deb Deveno at using the email link - Yearbook Questions below to coordinate a different drop off option.

    Please put the child's name, grade and teacher in pencil on the back. (No personal information about the child should be on the design side). The competition is open to all grade levels and all grade participation is encouraged. The runner up from each grade will also be showcased in the yearbook. Only the front cover and inside cover winners will receive the free yearbook. 

    If you have any school/class/individual photos you would like to be considered for the yearbook, please feel free to upload them using the Upload Photos Here link below.

    Please look for the icon in the upper right corner below the big black banner for instructions.
