EVCS Weekly Nov 27 – Dec 1


Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am thankful for parents, students and staff at EVCS who make up our amazing school family! Thank you for your Social Action with the Harvest Festival at the local Trinity Church soup kitchen and food pantry. We collected over 1200 cans this year! Nicely Done. Thanks to Julie Harwood for capturing this year’s Harvest Festival for all to share. View photos here! Enjoy.

At EVCS we go outside even when it gets cold. Please be sure to send your child to school with the proper jacket as temperatures begin to drop. Layering is also a good idea. Please clearly label all of your items.

There is a lot to look forward to when we return Monday, November 27
let’s get the details…

Winter Recess: Schools Closed. School Resumes on Tuesday, January 3


Reminder: School begins at 8:30 a.m.
We share the cafeteria during breakfast with 2 other schools and often other students are still eating breakfast at 8:30. If your child arrives in time for breakfast, but they are not finished by the time school starts, they need to take their food and go up to class by 8:30. Please be aware that EVCS students go to up starting at 8:25 a.m. EVCS students should not be in the cafeteria after 8:30 unless they’re with their parents.


Important Dismissal Reminders
Remember that school ends at 2:50. We ask everyone to be on time to meet their children and to pick up directly from your child’s classroom. All children must be signed out by their classroom teacher. This is for everyone’s safety, so thank you for your support in this effort.

While we understand that things come up and changes may happen from time to time, please do your best to give us 24 hour notice of any change to a regular schedule. Please be sure your teacher(s) are aware of any change.


As always, please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Have a safe and thankful holiday weekend!
