Lost and Found

Our Lost and Found is currently overflowing with many jackets, sweaters, lunch boxes, backpacks, books, etc. Some of these items were left before we had to quarantine last year, and many have been added this school year. If your student has lost something, please ask them to check out our Lost and Found by April 2nd. We will be clearing out and donating all items left after that time. Thank you!

 

Meal Packages for Spring Break

Because of spring break, PCPS will not have our regular meal pickup service on Wednesday, March 24. But we’ve still got you covered!
In an effort to keep students fed during the break, all PCPS high schools will be distributing packages of food on Wednesday, March 17, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Advance registration is required to receive the food, and you must sign up by March 9.
Click here to register: tinyurl.com/springbreakmeals.
The meals are available to all children 18 and under, including all public, private, charter and home school students in Polk County.
Please note:
– Registration is required for planning purposes and does not guarantee you will receive meals. The packages will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until our supplies are depleted.
– All families who wish to obtain the meal packages for spring break must register in advance at the link above, even if you have previously registered for pickup meals for online students.
– Children do not have to be present to receive meals, as long as you can provide some form of ID (please see the registration page for examples: tinyurl.com/springbreakmeals.)
– PCPS high schools will only be providing meals for pick up from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on March 17. Our other food distribution sites will be operating as normal. Please see polkschoolsfl.com/lunchlocations for details.

E-Learning Update

“This morning we experienced an issue with access to resources such as Classlink (and some apps within Classlink) and Office 365. This only affected staff and students who are conducting eLearning from home. We have identified and resolved the issue and all users should be able to access at this time.”

Kindness Week

Good Evening! Everyone should have received the newsletter last week regarding us celebrating “Kindness Week” this week, here at Eagle Lake Elementary. The students have been participating in several activities that encourage kindness in school, the community, and at home. With only two more days, please encourage this effort at home. Per the newsletter, tomorrow is “Tied Together by Kindness”, in which we will be wearing our favorite tie dye shirt. Friday is “Powered by Kindness”, which is wear your favorite superhero shirt. The students are playing “Kindness Bingo” this week, so you may see them doing acts of kindness at home to fill out their Bingo card. If they are witnessed, please initial in the box that corresponds with the act of kindness. We hope you all have a GREAT rest of the week!
