Welcome to Eastside School! We are so excited to bring students back into our beautiful building. We will continue to make safety a top priority during this pandemic as we follow the Oregon Department of Education’s guidelines and recommendations. This will include mask wearing for staff and students.
We have many new faces joining our incredible staff this year, including Kyle Aurdahl, our new Assistant Principal. Kyle grew up in Coos Bay and is excited to return to the area with his family. Kyle will work half-time at Eastside and half-time at Millicoma.
We will host a Kickoff Week September 7-10 to bring students and families in to meet their teachers and learn about the school year. This meeting will provide an important opportunity for you and your child to meet with their teacher to discuss COVID-19 practices for the school year. Teachers will also speak with you about our academic curriculum, your child’s social-emotional needs, and your needs as family members. Teachers will work with your child on some academic tasks during this time as well to learn more about your learner. We will be practicing social distancing during these conferences, and all COVID-19 protocols will be in place to ensure safety (this includes masks/face coverings). Your child’s teacher will be contacting you during the last week of August to schedule these conferences.
We are pleased to announce that we will welcome students to their official full day of school on September 13th! We have designed a full-day model that will allow students to be in school five days a week. Our school hours are 8:00-2:35 Mondays through Thursdays and 8:00-11:30 on Fridays. Our doors will open at 7:35 every morning.
These changes to school can be frustrating. We are very sympathetic to your needs and concerns and are hopeful that we can work together to make this school year meaningful for you and your student.
