Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am humbled and honored to be welcoming your students to Eastern Hills Middle School. Our team is dedicated to our mission of “teaching so that all students can learn to their maximum potential.” Through the utilization of face-to-face and online learning environments, we are committed to providing engaging and challenging learning experiences for all students. Our continued commitment to fostering integrity, humility and resilience will be evident, as we prepare our students to become lifelong learners and productive members of society.
Beginning Monday, August 31, 2020, students will have the option of choosing either traditional face-to-face learning or a virtual learning environment. Face-to-face students will be counted present when they are physically in class while virtual student’s will be counted present once they access their online learning through Schoology each day.
Students who choose the face-to-face learning environment must wear a face covering at all times on the bus or in the school building; must bring any district-issued technology every day; and, must follow all campus and district Covid 19 mitigation efforts. Students who choose the virtual learning environment will attend synchronous and/or asynchronous learning through Schoology on a class-by-class basis. After September 8, 2020, you will need to contact your student’s counselor to complete the “Learning Environment Change Request” process if your student would like a change in their learning environment. While we anticipate unexpected challenges during this unprecedented time, we are committed to supporting your student.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve your student! I look forward to working with you and your student this year!
Gina Brown, Principal
Eastern Hills Middle School
