Tomorrow, we officially start the 2018-2019 school year. This is always an exciting time for our students, staff, and parents. I would ask that everyone remember a couple of things:
- On the first day, the buses may be a little early or a little late with their routes. It takes a couple of days to get new riders accommodated on our routes.
- The traffic is usually fairly heavy the first couple of days. Please be patient with our unloading and loading of students.
- It will take a couple of days for our dismissal routine in the afternoon to be completed in a timely manner. Just like the students getting back into their routine, it takes a little time for the campuses to get back in their routines.
We appreciate the great turnout for Meet the Teacher yesterday.
Many of our students have already been putting in practice time. Cross country, volleyball, and the Mighty Bulldog Marching Band have been practicing since August 1. The Bulldog High School football players have been practicing since August 6.
We have already had several volleyball scrimmages and matches. Today, the High School volleyball teams host Alba-Golden with the first game starting at 4:30. This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the Lady Bulldogs host their annual varsity volleyball tournament. There will be teams from all over at this tournament. I will be providing playing times on our Twitter feed @EustaceISD.
Our High School football teams travel to Edgewood this Friday for their first scrimmage of the year. The scrimmage is set to start at 6:30.
I will be providing updates on events and activities throughout the year. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to another great year for EISD.
