Warm Weather Uniform:
The warm weather uniform for girls/boys in Gr. 1-6 consists of the official EBCCS polo shirt, dress shorts (NOT gym shorts). Boys may wear the uniform shorts or dress pants. Jr. High girls may wear their polo shirt with the uniform skirt or the regulation dress shorts. Shoes for boys must be black leather/soft-type shoe (no stripes, swirls, or logos can be visible on the shoe) or regular dress shoes. Girls may also wear solid colored canvas/leather or dress shoes. No stripes, swirls, or logos can be visible on the shoe. Heals are to be low - no high or platform shoes. This uniform may be worn until October 2nd.
Students may wear the regular uniform at any time during the year. Those choosing to wear the warm weather uniform will need to transfer into the regular uniform by the first Monday of October.
The Regular Uniform consists of the following:
• Boys Grades 1-8: Light Blue shirts, ties, and navy pants, EBCCS emblem sweater.
• Girls Grades 1-5: Jumper, uniform blouse, criss-cross tie, and EBCCS emblem regulation sweater.
• Middle School Girls 6-8: Uniform blouse or EBCCS Polo shirt with the plaid skirt; EBCCS emblem or embroidered sweater or vest.
BOYS: Haircuts must be short. Hair should not be growing over ears or eyes. If your son's hair is long or straggly, we ask you to please get him an appropriate haircut over the weekend.
GIRLS: Make up, frosted/dyed/extreme hairstyles, jewelry are NOT allowed at anytime at any grade level.
Snacks are available daily at recess time. Milk and cookies are $.75 per item. Students are asked to pay at the time of purchase.
Students may bring bag lunches to school. But these lunches must come in with the children in the morning. We ask parents NOT to bring food from restaurants such as McDonalds at lunchtime. This can be upsetting for children whose parents cannot do the same. In fairness to all, we ask students to either eat the lunches provided by our school or bring bag lunches with them in the morning.
Students must report each day at 8:10AM. Dismissal for Grades 1-6 is 2:20; 7 & 8 is 2:40; and Early Learning Center and K2 dismissal is 2:15pm.
The suspension of classes because of inclement weather will be announced on local TV stations, instant alert system, and on our school's answering machine.
EBCCS attendance policy requires that excessive absenteeism (25-30 days) may result in grade retention. Tardiness is also considered a serious matter. Students must report each day at 8:10AM.
There are various noon dismissal days during the school year as indicated in the calendar with // symbol surrounding the day. These early dismissals include: Faculty meeting days, report card conference days; etc. Noon dismissal days are considered JUST AS IMPORTANT as full day sessions. Between the hours of 8:10 - 12:00 Noon major subjects are taught. Therefore, all students must be present on these days.
Holidays and Vacations:
There are official holidays and vacation built into our calendar. Therefore, trips and vacations should be planned during these time periods. UNSCHEDULED VACATIONS are discouraged. Children lose valuable instructional time that very often is impossible to make-up.
Official Holidays for the calendar year are:
Martin Luther King Day
February Winter Break
Spring Break April Vacation
