A Message from the Principal

Dear East Family,


This is your principal Matt Lasher with some announcements related to the end of the 19-20 school year. First of all, I hope that everyone is healthy and well. I want to congratulate our families on a successful school year of growth and partnership. We made great strides as a school community this year! This was also an unprecedented year involving challenges such as COVID-19 and recent events around racism and I hope we can come together as a family to erase both from our community.


I want to assure you that UCPS and East Elementary will take every step possible to assure the safety of our children as they re-enter the school building on August 17th. We are unsure at this point as to exactly what next school year will look like between face to face and remote learning, but I will continue to communicate throughout the summer with any new information. 


You will be receiving a feedback form from your teacher in the mail in the next week. Please review this information with your child. There is no formal report card being mailed due to COVID-19. The feedback form will also indicate your child’s promotion status.


We will miss our students over the summer and can’t wait to see them in August. Please reach out to the school if you have any questions or concerns. I have also included a form that will accompany this message, for parents to complete any questions or suggestions they have to help us keep the communication lines open as we prepare for another great school year.
