Lunch Visitors Rules Starting in September, East Side is welcoming our families back to having lunch with their students this year. Due to the number of students East Side has, some rules have had to be established. Only one family per grade level will be allowed each day. There is a maximum of 2 visitors. All visitors will need to have the ID with them to sign in and sign out of the building. Parents will have to call the office at least 24 hours in advance and schedule an “appointment” to join their child for lunch. Please do NOT contact the teacher, only “appointments” scheduled through the office will be accepted. Parents will be able to sign up to have lunch with their child no more than once a month in order to give other families an opportunity to do the same. NO restaurant food is allowed in the cafeteria. Ex: McDonalds, Subway, Little Caesars, etc. If you are not feeling well, please do NOT come in. If you are clearly sick, you may be turned away. We ask that you leave after the lunch period, and not go out to recess or walk your child back to class. Thank you!
We are off to a great start to the school year! Here is the September Newsletter for Concord East Side:
Triple P - Positive Parenting Program has several workshops planned this fall to support Concord families! To register, go online to https://elkhartcountyparents.org or call 574-226-0160. #ConcordPride
A couple of reminders: 1) August 15th class lists will be posted at 1:00 pm 2) August 15th Back to School Night (Kindergarten 5:00-5:45 we will start in the cafeteria) (Grades 1-4 6:00-6:45 open house format) 3) August 17th first day of school 4) Drop off and Pick up procedure at East Side As we begin the school year, we want to remind families of our drop off and pick up procedures. We ask that you enter the parking lot on the north drive which is marked with signs. (see map) We form 2 lines and then merge as you get close to the basketball hoops by the playground. This helps to manage the number of cars that we have. We ask that children exit the vehicle on the side closest to school. This is a safety precaution. To pick your child up at the end of the day, you will need a "pick up" number. You can get this from the office at East Side. We are looking forward to a great year and want to make sure we keep everyone safe. Thanks for your help with following this plan.

We're currently in the market for 2nd shift custodians at Ox Bow, East Side, CJHS and CHS (a total of eight open positions).
