Dear East Family,

I hope that all of you are enjoying your summer vacation.  I am sure that everyone will be well rested and ready to start a new school year on September 2nd.  Remember, the first day of school is a full day of school.  The middle school day begins at 7:25 a.m. with dismissal at 2:10 p.m.

As a reminder, if your child is eligible for bus transportation you will be able to view this information through MiStar Parent Connect at the end of August with the pick-up time and bus stop location.  Students that live within a mile and a half of East are not eligible for bus transportation.  Post cards will NOT be mailed home with bussing information.  Your child will receive a packet of information the first day of school with other important documents concerning Picture Day, PTSA involvement and much more.


8th grade students can get their schedule starting August 25 by choosing Mi Star Parent Connect under the Quick Links.  Follow the prompts for your PIN and password then choose Schedule.  To get your locker assignment, go to Student Connect, also a Quick Link on the East website.  Log in with the student’s ID and password (password is student’s birth date i.e. mmddyy) and find the locker icon.  8th grade schedules will not be printed by the school.  Please bring in your updated Emergency Card on the first day of school.

7th grade students will return their updated Emergency Card and get their schedule and locker assignment at the W.E.B. (Where Everyone Belongs) Orientation Day on August 25.  Students with last names A-K attend 9:45 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and students with last name L-Z attend 12:45 p.m.-3:00 p.m.  If you can’t be there, schedules will be available online on August 25, follow the instructions above to print the schedule at home.  There will also be a parent/guardian Q & A at 9:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.

Students can visit the school, test their locker and find their classrooms August 25-28 from 8a.m.-2p.m.

Access to clubs, sports or other extra curricular activities will not be available to students with outstanding obligations such as library fines, lost/damaged textbooks or uniforms.  Please clear all obligations before school starts.

Suggested School Supplies – Farmington Public Schools provides the materials necessary for the successful completion of classes.  However, some parents voluntarily provide supplies for the children such as lined paper, graph paper, 3-Ring binder, set of dividers with 5 tabs, pens, pencils, highlighters, small pack of colored pencils, folders, glue sticks and scissors.

East sends out a weekly Listserv with updates on school activities and information about daily scheduled events. Changes in times or special announcements are sent out immediately to subscribers. Parents can sign up for the Listserv by going to the Quick Links on the left side of this page and selecting the ‘Subscribe to Listserv’ link and following the directions.

We are looking forward to a great school year.

East Middle School recently celebrated their 50th anniversary with a weeklong celebration. They had a spirit week, an assembly with fun activities that were 50 related, a school dance that was a flashback to 1963, and an evening concert that showcased band, orchestra, choir, theater and art. The concert also included the unveiling of East's 50th anniversary mural which was designed by East's art teacher Beth Iatrou. The students and staff had a great week of celebrating!
