Principal's Message

EEMS Family,

I would like to take an opportunity to welcome students and staff to another great school year at Eastern Elementary/Middle School. With the abrupt end to the previous school year, we did not have the opportunity to send our students off for the summer as any of us would have wished. We have certainly missed every one of them and cannot wait to see each of them again.

Thank you for your patience over the summer as we have worked diligently to plan for the upcoming school year. Obviously, this has been a new experience for us all, so additional time was needed to make necessary adjustments.  Please know that as planning has occurred, we have made the safety of our students our greatest priority.

Recently, you received the Giles County Public School’s Return to Learning plan which contains detailed information regarding the operation of this school year. It includes information regarding the county-wide hybrid schedule with details about classroom instruction, as well as, our virtual learning plan.   I encourage everyone to read this plan in full prior to the beginning of the school year as this will answer many of the questions that you may have.

In addition to the “Return to Learning” plan, all parents of EEMS students recently received a letter from me outlining the details of our daily operation which include our daily schedule, in-class instruction, virtual learning, transportation, school nutrition, communication, and student safety protocols.  I hope that you found this information helpful, but should additional questions arise, or if more information is needed, please do not hesitate to reach out to the EEMS staff.

Your support is crucial to the success of our students. We look forward to working with our parents and community to provide our students with a safe, equitable, healthy learning environment. We also realize that our communication with you is vital to all of our success. Therefore, in addition to our traditional methods of communication, EEMS will begin a Facebook page for the 2020-2021 school year.  We hope that this will provide a more convenient and efficient method of communicating school announcements.  Please look for us on Facebook in the coming days.

Please know that every member of the EEMS staff is dedicated to the health, safety, happiness, and continued learning of your child.  All of the staff at EEMS have truly missed seeing our students.  While we enter this school year in a very “non-traditional” manner, we are very excited to see the smiling face of every child once again.
