Dear East Prairie families,


Here is a link to our Remote Learning 2.0 Guidebook for Families.  Our guidebook from last school year has been updated and enhanced, just like our remote learning program.  A PDF version is attached below as well.  This comprehensive guidebook provides families with in-depth information and updates on our remote learning plans, as well as, shares a multitude of resources for supporting learning at home.


This guidebook will help support families with the following topics:

- establishing routines and schedules

- financial assistance

- food & nutrition information

- social-emotional learning

- mindfulness (for kids and adults)

- active movement and breaks

- strategies for supporting reading at home

- math games for the whole family

- self-care and mental health

-and much much more...


Our intention is to learn, grow, reflect, revise, and improve the Remote Learning 2.0 model day-by-day and week-by-week until we are fully back to in-person instruction.  Please use this form to share your feedback, suggestions, and ideas for how we can improve this model to ensure we are meeting the needs of children, families, and community to the fullest extent possible.  The form also has room to ask questions;  we will put together a full response for all of the questions shared.


First through fifth grade class assignments will be shared via email early next week.  Life skills teachers have already been communicated with our middle schoolers, more specific remote learning schedules will be shared soon.  School begins remotely on Tuesday, August 25th.  We will be hosting outdoor in-person meet-and-greets with your child’s homeroom/life skills teacher that week, 8/25-8/28.  Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to schedule a date/time for that meeting next week.  Families will also be able to pick-up Chromebooks, yearbooks, personal belongings, and PTA supply packs at this time.  Specific details for this event will be shared early next week.


Lastly, please see below for a message from our incredible PTA, introductory letter and membership forms are also attached.  Thank you for your ongoing trust and support.  Have a marvelous weekend!


In partnership,


The East Prairie Team

Hello from your EPS PTA!


As we look forward to a new school year starting, albeit in a different form than we are used to, we wanted to welcome everyone back with a few PTA updates!


First, if you ordered a school supply prepack to be delivered to the school, we are going to be distributing the packs at the “meet the teacher” event the first week of school. Be on the lookout for more info!


Second, membership! Please see the attached letter about becoming a PTA member for the 2020-2021 school year. Your $10 dues go towards programming here at EPS, as well as the state and national PTA. Also, you get an (in)famous EPS PTA school calendar with your dues! Complete your membership online or bring your $10 to the “Meet the teacher” event and you can pick up your calendar then!


Finally, our first meeting will be September 1st at 7pm via Zoom (link to meeting forthcoming)! We hope to see you all there! Bring your creativity and help us plan unique and innovative events to meet the challenges of this year!


Please enjoy the last few weeks of summer and know that you can always reach out to the PTA board with any comments or concerns.
