YES! School on Wednesday

September 12, 2017

Dear EES Community,

We have received news that there WILL BE SCHOOL ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th.

BEA and BSD have reached an agreement to return to negotiate further and will do so on Wednesday at 11am. This meeting will not impact the daily schedule of our teachers or students – therefore, there is school as originally planned on Wednesday.

The Board Meeting originally scheduled for tonight, Tuesday September 12th will no longer be held.

Further information regarding school schedule after Wednesday will be released as we hear about it – most likely on Wednesday by the end of the day. Please stay tuned!

Again, more information can be found at:
www.beaworks.com.
and at:
http://www.bsdvt.org/school-board/negotiations/.

Thank you,

EES PTO


Important EES Infromation

September 10, 2017

Dear EES Families,

Possible upcoming events may disrupt the regular school schedule at all Burlington Schools.

Thursday afternoon, the Burlington School District Teachers Union voted to strike beginning Wednesday, September 13th. Details regarding this decision can be found at the website of the Burlington Education Association (BEA) here or at www.beaworks.com.

Information released by the Burlington School District (BSD) can be found here or at http://www.bsdvt.org/school-board/negotiations/.

If a strike is not avoided, there will be no school starting on Wednesday, September 13th. Parents should plan ahead for the possibility of no school on Wednesday and moving forward until a resolution is reached between BEA and BSD.

It is our hope that the BEA and the BSD will reunite for further negotiations before the strike deadline.

Thank you,

EES PTO

SEEKING ROOM PARENTS: NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

Being a room parent is a great way to get more connected to your child’s classroom community and support his/her education! A room parent’s basic responsibility is to assist her/his classroom teacher in promoting family involvement in the classroom and school wide activities, such as teacher appreciation and classroom party planning. Being available during school hours is helpful, but not necessary. If you are interested in being a room parent or have questions about what a room parent does, contact Hollie Foley (holliesfoley or 802-318-2596). Please include your name, classroom teacher, and the best way to contact you.
