Next week, EISD will start on its summer hours schedule. Offices and summer school will work on a Monday-Thursday schedule. The offices will open at 7:30 and will close at 5:00 PM. All offices will be closed on Fridays.
We have utilized this schedule the past several summers in an effort to cut down on the amount of electricity used in the summer. The district will remain on this schedule until the second week in August. Of course, football, band, cross country, and volleyball will start the first of August. Once practice officially begins for these activities, they will not be under the four day week.
Also, EISD will be providing a summer nutrition program during the month of June. This summer nutrition program is strongly encouraged by the state and the state will be providing the funding for the program. The program will provide breakfast and lunch for youths 18 years and younger at no cost. Breakfast will start at 7:30 and go through 8:30. Lunch will start at 11:30 and go through 12:30. There are no forms to fill out. Everyone 18 years and younger eats free. The summer nutrition program starts June 7 and goes through June 30. As with our regular summer hours, it will run Monday – Thursday during this time. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Rosemary Abbott at 425-5150.
