Early Dismissal WednesdayEllinwood Public Schools will dismiss classes at 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25th.  This time is set aside for teacher collaboration.  Due to teacher/staff meetings, the Grade School Office will close promptly at 2:30 p.m.  It is important that your child know what they are to do after school before that day.


FUN PASTA FUNDRAISER: Were your friends and family super excited about their Fun Pasta order?  Are they asking you if we will do it again?  Do they just want more?  You and your friends and family can still place Fun Pasta orders online.  Go to until January 31st. 


Appointments:  Please use discretion when scheduling Doctor and Dentist appointments.  If possible, schedule them for early release days, days off, or summer.  Too much time away from the classroom and especially from core classes puts the student behind in critical subjects.  Communicate with the teacher if first thing in the morning or the very end of the day might be better alternatives.  Thank you for putting your students’ education first.
