Dear East Family,
I hope that you have had a restful and productive summer. We have been very busy at East in preparation for the new school year!
The summer construction is moving along as planned. We have been assured that East will be ready for students on the first day, September 6. All of the projects will not be completed, but work will continue after school hours.
Unfortunately, because of the unavailability of the school we will not be able to have our planned 6th and 7th grade orientations on Monday, August 29. Instead, schedules and other school information can be picked up at Dunckel Middle School, 32800 Twelve Mile on Monday, August 29 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Schedules can also be printed from MiStar Parent Portal after Wednesday, August 31. Students and Parents are not permitted at East until the first day of school.
On September 6, when students arrive to school, we will have them meet in central locations. 8th grade will meet in the cafeteria. 6th and 7th grade will meet in the gym. We will have a modified schedule for this day so that students can become oriented to the school and become more familiar with where they are going (find their classes, locker, etc.). Our 8th grade WEB Leaders will assist the 6th and 7th grade students during this time. Students should enter the building either through the doors by the cafeteria or the front of the building. Please do not enter the construction zone.
Only buses are permitted in the front of the school during morning drop off and afternoon pickup. Please follow the traffic pattern through the main parking lot if you are driving your child. If possible, have them ride the bus. It is important that on the first day of school only students enter the building. The East parking lot cannot manage a large number of visitor cars and the addition of unknown adults in the halls can be challenging. Your student will be well taken care of.
Farmington Middle School Curriculum Night (Open House) is Thursday, September 8. This is the opportunity for you to see East, meet your child’s teachers and follow their schedule to find out what they will be learning this school year. It begins at 6:00 p.m.
Middle School Fall athletics begin the first week of school. Information concerning Football (7th and 8th grade), Girls’ Basketball (7th and 8th grade) and Cross Country (6th, 7th and 8th grade) will be provided soon. All student athletes must have a physical dated after April 15, 2016 in order to participate (or tryout).
The East staff is excited about this coming year!
