Based upon the new opening plan, ESP will not open until September 8, 2020. This is a change from the start date we originally intended to use which was September 1, 2020. We want to allow the kids time to acclimate to their new normal and give them, as well as the teachers, time to adjust to all of the changes. It will be a stressful time for everyone. Additionally, we will be able to tweak our planned procedures based upon what’s working and what’s not working during the school day. One big change is that ESP will operate from each school and will not merge into one location. Students enrolled at East Side will stay at East Side and so forth. So, parents will pick up their children from the school they attend during the day. ESP registration will be online like it was last year. We will announce registration dates via social media, the ECS newsletter, and email at the appropriate time.
