Good Evening Eagle Families,
Summer is almost here, and East Lake High School is thrilled we will once again run both our very successful High School Summer Bridge and APEX credit recovery programs in person this summer. Summer Bridge is an extended learning opportunity designed to ensure our students don’t lose the valuable progress they’ve made during the school year in their academic classes. APEX credit recovery also gives our students to opportunity to catch up on any graduation requirement in which they may have fallen behind so they start next school year on-track to graduate with their appropriate grade levels.
Here are the Summer Bridge Programs this summer:
The Summer Bridge program will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays from June 21st to July 15th. Breakfast and Lunch will be available at school at no cost for all students who attend Summer Bridge and APEX.
APEX credit recovery classes will be offered this summer starting on June 14th and will also be eligible for transportation.- Register below!
TRANSPORTATION: Arterial route transportation is also available for your student. When you click on the registration link below, you will be asked to choose the bus stop closest to your home.

Mission- The community of East Lake High School will develop productive and responsible students who are prepared for post-secondary education, the workforce and citizenship.
NEW COVID-19 COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS EFFECTIVE FEB. 21
As you may know, the district maintains a dashboard on our website that lists all positive cases in our schools at www.pcsb.org/covid19cases. That dashboard is updated each work day and is searchable by location and date.
Additionally, in an effort to keep everyone overly-informed, principals have been sending out schoolwide messages every time a positive case is confirmed in their school. In many cases this is leading to families receiving multiple calls and emails per week and is causing confusion and message fatigue. We recognize that sending too many messages reduces their effectiveness. We have been asked to simplify the process to ensure families only receive the most essential communications, so we will be updating our protocols moving forward.
Beginning February 21, we will do the following:
Beginning February 21, if you do not receive a call, then your student has not been deemed a close contact of a positive case and should attend school normally. If at any time you would like additional information about the number of cases at your student’s school, or the safety protocols being followed, we encourage you to submit a question on the Dashboard webpage or reach out to the school principal.
As always, we ask everyone to monitor themselves for any sign of illness. If we all do our part, we can continue to keep our school family healthy and safe
