Preparing for School!

We interrupt this fabulous summer …

Dear EVCS Parents and Guardians,

We hope everyone is enjoying this time away and getting re-energized!

As summer begins to wind down and we start to prepare ourselves for September,
we want to share some important information to help us in the transition back to school.
Here are a few items to take note of.

You have the option of sending your child to school with lunch,
or you may take advantage of the school lunch available daily.

There is a designated table in front of the cafeteria window that has been identified
and labeled as the “Nut Free Zone”.

Pay for school lunch online.

2) SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Getting school supplies ahead of time can reduce stress.

Everyone should have their supply lists by now. They were emailed out by your child’s new classroom teacher(s). Please remember that all items are suggested and optional._

If you do shop online, please be reminded that you can Give Back to EVCS when you purchase School Supplies via the Amazon link and a small percentage of your purchase will go to the EVCS PA: smile.amazon.com

3) LOST AND FOUND

Please remember to Identify your belongings. It is a good idea to label your child’s personal items. A sharpie marker can work just fine, or you can get labels.We have partnered up with an easy online label company to help ID stuff.EVCS receives a percentage back on all purchases.
The Lost and Found is located in the main lobby on the west side of the space.
