Dear East Allen County Schools Family,

The second semester has brought us some hazardous weather.  I want to assure you that we take every decision regarding delays and cancelations very seriously.  The safety of our students, parents, bus drivers, and staff is of the utmost importance to us.  We have multiple people driving the roads beginning at 4:30 a.m.  Many times they make a couple loops in and around the district just to see if conditions have changed since they first reported.  Please keep in mind that East Allen County Schools covers a lot of area and sometimes what you are seeing out your back window or experiencing on the roads near you is not what another part of the district is experiencing.  We have been working on a graphic display about how delays and cancelations are determined.  Please see the display below:

Delay-Closing Decisions

As we move into February, I want to remind you that we have some very important dates during the months of February and March. First, from February 26 - March 9, we will administer Part 1 of ISTEP testing for grades 3-10. Your help is needed to make sure that students get plenty of sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, be on time to school, and if possible get them to relax and just do their best. It is important for you to understand that ISTEP is not the only assessment we use to track student academic achievement. EACS utilizes multiple assessments to gather data to drive instruction. As we look at our internal data for each student, we identify trends and then focus our interventions and/or additional curriculum supports on those identified student needs. The growth of each student is our focus. Data helps us to accomplish this goal of supporting students and preparing them for college and career success.
