ELE Families

Dear ELE Families,


I hope you are having a restful summer so far, and staying healthy and safe.


Our commitment to learning, health and safety drives everything that we do. It drove the transition to remote learning this past March, when we knew that closing school buildings was essential to flattening the curve of COVID-19 and for the safety of our students and staff. It was profoundly challenging, but our staff, you and your children handled it with unbelievable grace and effort.


I always say that ELE has the best students, families, and staff! A safe return to school will require we consistently work together as partners—district leaders, staff, families, and students. Together we can ensure that our students—your children—get the education they deserve in the safest, most supportive environments possible.


We appreciate your patience as we are working diligently to provide a safe and effective preliminary plan to begin this upcoming 2020-2021 school year.  District and school leaders will be meeting next week and will release the pertinent back-to-school information on Friday, July 17th.


Once this information is released, please feel

to contact me if you have any questions.  


Your children are dearly missed! I can’t wait to see each of their faces! They truly are a source of joy, energy and love each day they enter the building!


Stay safe and remember that together we are FALCON STRONG!


Mrs. Dean
