  • What's new at EAWR!
  • County School Facilities Sales Tax Information Dear EAWR Parents and Community Members:In just a couple of weeks (Tuesday, April 4, 2017), the voters of Madison County will be asked to approve a proposal to provide funding to all county school districts through a 1% sales tax increase. The revenue from this sales tax can only be used to build or renovate school facilities or to make payments on existing bond debt. By Illinois law, this sales tax revenue cannot be used to pay  salaries, benefits, supplies or other operating expenses.  The Board has plans to use the sales tax revenue to renovate various areas of the high school campus, which would be cost-prohibitive without this revenue and to provide some property tax relief to ...

  • Reminder: School in Session: Thursday, April 13, 2017 As you may recall, the Thursday (April 13, 2017) before Easter (Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday to some) was designated as a "buy-back" day in case there was a snow day used. Parents and students were notified last fall not to plan anything concrete, since that day would likely be used as student attendance day, in order to shorten the school calendar. Therefore, Thursday, April 13, 2017, will be a full attendance day.There will be no school - as always planned - on Good Friday (April 14), and the Monday following Easter (April 17). That has NOT changed. In other words, a 4-day Easter weekend.

  • Full School Day on March 31 Due to a change in the calendar, the "School Improvement Half-Day" (where students attend in the morning, and then are dismissed at 11:15) is switched from Friday, March 31 to Friday, April 28, 2017. Although the school's Google Calendar (found via this Website) had this change reflected there was apparently an old "text version" of the 2016-17 calendar (from last July) that was still sitting in the Documents tab. I apologize for any confusion. That old version has been deleted and the updated version is now available in the Documents main page.So, bottom line is that there will be a full day of school on Friday, March 31st, and a half-day of school on ...
