School Board Letter to the Public
On October 1st from 12:00pm-4:00pm, the Indiana Immunization Coalition (IIC) will be onsite at Eastern High School to host an immunization clinic during the school day for students. This is a wonderful opportunity for your student to get caught up on their immunizations if they are behind, and if you want your student to get their immunizations now in preparation for the following school year (PreK, 5th and 11th graders). THIS IS AN OPTIONAL SERVICE. NO CHILD WILL BE GIVEN ANY VACCINATIONS UNLESS THE PARENT COMPLETES THE ONLINE REGISTRATION. If you do not want your student to participate then please do not complete the online registration. Middle and High School students will be called out of class at the appropriate time to receive their vaccines. If you have an Elementary student that you would like vaccinated during this clinic, we ask that you get them out of class and bring them to the High School for the clinic.

The East Washington School Board Meeting will be held in the Performing Arts Center at Eastern High School at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, August 24, 2021. There is no scheduled action by the Board at this meeting concerning a mask mandate; the current mask recommendation will remain in effect. Since the Board realizes mask wearing is a very prominent issue at this time in public schools, comments will be heard concerning the issue during the public comment portion of the meeting. If you would like to address the board, please contact the central office to be added to the comment list. The public comment portion of the meeting is limited to one hour. Each person on the list would traditionally be allotted 10 minutes; however, individual time may be reduced to accommodate all persons wishing to speak.
Due to a shortage of water due to a water main break, the East Washington Schools will be closed today, August 16th.
