Book FAIR information

Dear Parents and Families:

Reading increases knowledge and vocabulary, lowers stress, and supports your child’s emotional growth. But perhaps the best benefit is the lasting bond you create with your child when you read with them.

Book Fair dates: March 11th – 14th

Online dates: March 11th – 24th

With Book Fair eWallet, a safe and convenient digital payment account, your student can shop the Fair cash-free! If they’re not able to attend the Fair, try our online shopping option (with free shipping on orders of $25 or more)! Visit our homepage or scan the QR code below to access eWallet or shop online. https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bf/easthillsmiddleschool2

Please remember, all items sold at the book fair are subject to 6% sales tax and all checks must be made out to EHPA.

We look forward to seeing your child at the Book Fair! 55% of all purchases are given back to benefit our school in monies to be spent on Scholastic items.

Sincerely,

Jessica Russell

Scholastic Fair Chairperson

Inclement Weather Procedures for Students & Parents

Described below will be the BASD’s weather-related practices in the 2023-2024 school year.
• Weather-related late starts and early dismissals will occur as usual.
• The first four (4) weather-related closures will be treated as traditional “Snow Days”
that are already built into to the school calendar.
• Students will have no assignment responsibilities on the Snow Days.
• Should weather conditions require more than four Snow Days during the school year,
the Superintendent will determine if weather conditions require a Snow Day that will be
made up later in the school year, or if students will have an Online Learning Day.

o Online Learning Days will be used when weather reports allow teachers sufficient
time to prepare/post online learning activities.
o On Online Learning Days teachers will post online course assignments within one
hour after the normal start of the school day. There will be no synchronous
instruction on Online Learning Days; students will complete assignments
independently.
o An Online Learning Day will count as an instructional day for purposes of state
attendance requirements.
o On Online Learning Days, student attendance will be determined by his/her
completion of the online assignments (contact Principal for further details).
o Teachers will be available on Online Learning Days to support students during
the hours of a regular school day by checking e-mail frequently and/or using
district-supported devices to communicate with students and parents.
