While we are happy to provide homework on days when your child is absent, it is likely that if your child is absent for one day, he/she may not be able to manage a full homework load. Please have him/her complete IXL and independent reading. If your child is absent for more than one day, contact your child's teachers to get their homework. Teacher email addresses will be provided to you at the beginning of the school year.

- An e-mail with school news goes out every Friday morning. We encourage parents to carefully read this, as it will allow you to know everything that is planned for the following week.

On October 30, 1987 the Federal Government enacted legislation for application through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) entitled through the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). The law requires all elementary and secondary schools, both public and private, to conduct inspections to determine the location of asbestos containing materials and subsequently, to develop a management plan to ensure proper maintenance of these materials. This legislation requires, moreover, that students' parents and teachers be appraised of the results of such inspections. This notice is provided to comply with that requirement.
In consultation with a state certified contractor, the Eagle Hill School has submitted the required asbestos survey report and management plan to the State Department of Public Health. As required the management plan will be available for public inspection during normal school hours in the main office.
