East Middle School staff with the Erie community will create a culture of high expectation, collaboration, respect, and accountability. We will actively engage students and faculty in their learning through a high quality curriculum and researched based strategies. We are committed to provide each student with a well-rounded educational program.
We will be focusing on students following the district's dress code as we have in years past. We will continue to be checking every day to make sure that students are dressed according to the district's dress code policy. Students may be sent home to change and/or be assigned an appropriate consequence. For clarification on the dress code please click on the following link. K-8 Dress Code
Be On Time
We expect students to arrive at school in the morning early enough to get to their lockers and be in homeroom by 8:00. We also expect students to move between classes quickly and be in their next class before the bell rings. We will be providing incentives for students who can follow this expectation.
Cell phones and other electronic devices need to be used only at approved times. Students are permitted to use them during their lunch period. During the rest of the day these devices need to be secured in the student's lockers.
