Rain or Shine!

Posted by Christi Whiteside on 8/3/2018 2:50:00 PM

Have you ever seen so much rain? I cannot remember the beginning of a school year ever being so wet! Thank you for being patient and kind to our carpool staff who’ve worked so diligently to keep everyone safe in this crazy weather! To those of you who’ve offered umbrellas and said supportive things, we thank you!

For those of you who are new to ECS, I want to give you a few reassurances.
1. The sun does usually shine on our campus! You just haven’t seen much of it yet.
2. Our carpool staff members do own shoes! They’ve just been barefooted in the recent flood waters.
3. If you and your child have been able to handle these torrential days of carpool, you’ve survived the worst of it!

The beginning of the year is always our slowest carpool, even in good weather. Our kindergarteners and other new students are learning our system. Many new families are also still figuring out carpool. However, the biggest reason that the beginning of the year carpool is slow is that many families have
not yet joined a carpool group. If you are a parent who only drives your own children, please consider joining a carpool! Less cars in our line makes carpool faster for everyone. For help locating ECS families near you, go to the Volunteers tab on our website. Locate the ECS Family Carpools option and the Carpool World choice on that page. Enter your information and you will be matched with families near you.

We are happy that you are a part of our community! Hopefully, we’ll enjoy some sunny days together soon!
