If school were to be closed during the school day, parents will be notified through the School Electronic phone-out system. Announcements of this type of closure would be broadcast through the communication sources listed above.

Our Public Health Nurse will visit our school to provide service for individuals or classes. The primary student related services are:

  • Vision and Hearing Tests with written consent from parents

  • Immunizations for students as per parental consent

  • Additional health matters of students with parental consent

Child Development Advisor

Our CDA, Bensu Ahmed, works with children on many levels.  Organization, conflict resolution, respecting each other, peer relationships and more.  Feel free to contact her if your child needs someone to talk with.

Student Transfers

If your child will be leaving EAMS during the school year, please notify the teacher and the school secretary at least one week prior to departure. Please ensure that all textbooks, library books, and other equipment issued by the school are returned in a timely fashion.

Crisis Management Plan (Hour Zero) and Fire Drills

The Crisis Management Plan is designed to assist children and adults should it become necessary to face and emergency situation. Practice sessions are conducted throughout the year so that everyone in our school is well trained and calm during such a situation.


If any concerns arise with your child in regard to their academic progress or emotional growth, you are urged to contact your child’s teacher as soon as possible. Working collaboratively on areas of concern greatly increases the chances of identifying the issues and successfully dealing with the issue. Our on site Child Development Advisor (CDA) is also available for working with you child.

At EAMS we try limit our paper use, therefore the majority of our contact will be done electronically through our website and email.  I encourage you to set up an RSS feed to various points of this website. Please contact us if you need help in this regard.
