    Good Evening Eagle Families,
    Congratulations on completing the first full week of virtual instruction.  I realize this has may have been a challenge for many families.  Thank you for your patience and kindness as we trouble shoot barriers and new technology.  Now that we have entered the virtual learning world and as we become more accustomed to the learning platform, teachers may encourage students to engage and interact to a greater degree, better reflecting the schedule to which the students are accustomed. If you are still in need of a device or if your device breaks, please contact Mr. Anderson at andersonshaw@pcsb.org for assistance.
    I have received a few questions from families regarding what the rest of the school year will look like.  As we get closer to May 1st I am sure we will receive more direction and information.   I realize there are quite a few unknowns, especially for our seniors. I will disseminate information as soon available.
    Please know the teachers and staff are missing seeing our students every day and we are saddened that students must miss out on all the spring activities including our spring sports.
    Lastly, this was the weekend of our spring show, Shrek.  I know our students worked so hard on this production.  Hopefully we will be able to see Shrek sometime soon.  In the meanwhile, here is a ditty created by our Theatre Director referencing songs from the show.
    “I wake up every day, all cheerful like a MORNING PERSON, thinking I KNOW IT’S TODAY that we’ll get to come back for rehearsals, but it hasn’t happened yet, and that’s the STORY OF MY LIFE. But I have no doubt that if we stay strong, singing our TRAVEL SONG, we’ll have a chance to LET OUR FREAK FLAG FLY...”
    In this BIG BRIGHT BEAUTIFUL WORLD where THIS IS HOW DREAMS COME TRUE we have to dig deep WHEN WORDS FAIL and we are feeling blue.  We are so overcome with emotions that we want to BUILD A WALL while internally screaming DON’T LET ME GO so I can show WHO I’D BE because I’M A BELIEVER and the show must go on!  Coronavirus you may say I THINK I GOT YOU BEAT but we are waiting for the day to MAKE A MOVE and sing THE GOODBYE SONG to THE BALLAD OF FARQUAAD and all this social distancing, school closings, performances halted and virtual learning.  We will stick together FOREVER and shout to the world that BEAUTIFUL AIN’T ALWAYS PRETTY.  This 2020 pandemic needs to ask WHAT’S UP DULOC and get out of the way of Troupe 4356 and the extremely talented cast, crew, orchestra, designers, builders and production team of Shrek the Musical!”
    Thank you, “Keep calm and Clever on!”

    Grades and Testing FAQ
    Onsite digital Device Distribution has concluded (as of 3/26/2020)
    Digital Devices
    The distribution of digital devices to access online course content has concluded at East Lake High School. If you still require a device, one will be distributed to you via the Pinellas County School district's Regional Device Distribution process. If your ELHS student still needs a device and he/she was not assigned one previously, send an e-mail to Asst. Principal, Mr. Anderson (ANDERSONSHAW@PCSB.ORG) to begin the process. You will be required to go to a school site which is NOT East Lake High School to pick up the device once an appointment has been confirmed. In your e-mail be sure to include your student's name, their grade level, and a working phone number where you can be reached.
