Good Evening Eagle Families,
On behalf of all the teachers and staff at East Lake High School we would like to welcome your students to our school. School starts on Monday and the day will begin at 7:20 AM with a short homeroom period
Students will arrive to school and go directly to their homerooms. We will have plenty of adults around the school to help direct students to their homerooms. Posters are located around the school with homeroom locations and there is a link on our website with homerooms by clicking here. Homerooms
If you drop your student off in the morning, please expect delays the first week or so. Lines are longest between 7:05 and 7:20. The car circle line appears long, however, it moves fairly quickly. Please pull up as far as possible in the car circle so we may keep the cars moving, and only drop off your student in the student drop off line. Please do not drop your student off in the student or teacher parking lots or on the side of the road as it is unsafe.
If you are a bus rider, please be at your stop at least ten minutes before your scheduled pick up time. Be patient as the first few weeks buses are adjusting exact pick up times. Students will receive valuable information to bring home during homeroom. Please review all of the information and return signed forms to first period teachers by August 20.
Thank you for visiting our website where you can find lots of valuable information. Please be aware, the schedule you see for your student today in FOCUS, may be different by Monday morning, so it is important for your student to pick up their schedule in the morning. Also, with a later start time comes a New Bell Schedule.
If your student does not have a first period class, they may pick up their information from Mrs. Ramos in student services. See you soon!
