Dear E.J. Families,
Our fourth quarter is coming to an end and I can hardly believe how fast the year flew by. This has certainly been a wonderful year with your amazing students! I'd like to take a moment to discuss a few important items with you.
First of all, the district's new Raptor system is expected to be completed by the end of May. We will be changing the parent drop off procedure this summer to accommodate the new system. The biggest change is that parents will no longer be allowed to walk in with their students through the parent drop off door. If parents want to come on campus with their students, they will need to enter through the main office and sign in with the Raptor system using a state issued ID. They will then be issued a picture ID badge to wear while they are on campus. We are looking for ways to expedite this process for frequent visitors. Since the Raptor system will be installed in all SFPS campuses, many schools have already implemented this change to keep the students as safe as possible. More information will be coming out about this process in the near future.
Please join us for our end of the year celebrations. Kindergarten Promotion will be held at 8:15am on May 21st in the gym. Also join us for 6th Grade Promotion at 10am on May 22nd in the gym.
The last day of school for all students is Wednesday, May 23rd. School dismisses at 11am that day and we will not be serving lunch. Please plan accordingly.
It is a great pleasure to serve the E.J. community. I am so proud of our little Vikings and all they have accomplished this year with their amazing teachers. I wish you all a fabulous and safe summer. Don't forget to check out all the summer programs that are available throughout the district and contact the office if you need more information about the summer options.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Jill Lee, Principal
