Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question about our school, our FAQ page is the best place to find the answer. We've provided answers to the questions we are asked most frequently. If you don't find what you need here, we're always happy to answer your questions personally. Just give us a call!


How do I report an absence?

To report a student absence, please call the school between 7:45 a.m. and 8:45 p.m. If a teacher marks a student absent, and we do not receive a call from home reporting the absence, the office will call the parent or guardian on file. If we are unable to reach you, we will contact the emergency contacts listed on your child’s information sheet. For more information, please see the student handbook.

What if my child misses the bus?

Buses depart between five and ten minutes after dismissal. Students should report immediately to the bus loading zones after dismissal. All bus students will ride the bus to Cody Middle School, where they will transfer to their regular route buses. If a student misses the bus, he/she should report to the office to inform the appropriate office staff. The office will contact the parent or guardian for further instructions. Please see our student handbook or our Transportation page for more information.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher to let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join our PTK. The Eastside PTK works together to engage, educate, and empower students, families, and staff to be successful. We welcome your help! Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
