Facility study says schools need maintenance and to manage growth

  E. Carver Co. Schools has been a growing district for decades. While the district opened a new elementary school last year, some of its schools are nearly 50 years old. We’re like a parent in a demographic sandwich, who’s caring for young children and aging parents at the same time. To navigate this situation, the school district conducted a facilities study in early 2018. The School Board recently heard the results that include the projected need for $150 million in maintenance costs over the next 10 years. Read more HERE.  ...

Library Volunteers Needed

Volunteers in the library help with tasks such as re-shelving books, checking in books, helping kids checkout books, organizing the shelves, and a couple other odds and ends. It works best if you are willing to commit to a weekly shift but if it needs to bi-weekly, we can make it work. The AM shift is from 9:30-12:00- helping kindergarteners and 2nd grade check out books. It would also be checking in all the books for the day. The PM Shift 12:25-2:00- helping 1st graders check out and assisting 3rd grade with self-checkout. Also help students coming down during their Reading Flex in 4th and 5th grade.   Please fill out this form if you are interested or contact Terah Roise, roiset@district112.org Thank...

Parking Lot Procedures Safety First!

For student and staff safety we ask that all parents adhere to these guidelines during parent drop-off and pick-up. Below are some observations that should help the efficiency, effectiveness and ultimately ensure the safety of our students every day. Morning drop off Time- 7:40-7:50am Breakfast Time- 7:45-8:00am School Start Time- 8:00am *Note: If your child is participating in the breakfast program, please be sure to arrive at 7:45 so that they are not late to class. Please pull all the way forward when asked by staff. Filling up the drop-off and pick-up zone keeps things moving along. Proceed as far forward to the playground as possible. Please stay off of your cell phone. Your full attention is needed as you enter the parking lot. We have over 100 cars and multiple pedestrians moving during this busy time and we need everyone to be attentive. Please be patient and stay in line. Please do not “leap frog”. At times, there are children exiting and entering from the driver side and we... Continue reading Parking Lot Procedures Safety First!
