FROM THE PRINCIPALS DESK

EISENHOWER SECURITY:  We are putting into place new procedures for entering Eisenhower Elementary during the school day.  Visitors to the school will need to be buzzed into the office after entering the front door and standing in the vestibule area.  We are just starting this process so we ask for patience in this new procedure, but when we get everything worked out, it is our hope that the school will be more secure during the day.  Please remember that once the school day starts, all visitors to the building need to come through the front doors to sign in and receive their visitors badge if they continue into the building.   Thanks for your support in this development.  The doors by the new parking lot/bus area, and the doors by the cafeteria will be replaced in the near future as part of the construction going on at Eisenhower.
EASTER BREAK:  Just a reminder that there will be NO SCHOOL on Friday the 14th and there will be NO SCHOOL on Monday the 17th to observe the Easter holiday.
