EVCS dismissal plans

Good afternoon, EVCS families!

I’m looking forward to an exciting new school year. Our teachers have been working hard to prepare their classrooms this week, but the building certainly isn’t the same without all of your children here – I can’t wait for Thursday!

I’m reaching out to ask that you take a few minutes to let us know about your child’s dismissal plans. I know that not everything may be solidified at this point with after school and childcare, but please let us know what your plans are by Friday, September 8, 2017. We understand that changes may happen from time to time, but we need to know what the regular expected routine is for all of our kids here.

I appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete this form.

Thank you! See you soon,

Liz Wanttaja
Assistant Principal
