What if parents/guardians have multiple children in the same school or in different schools? To be respectful of parent/guardians’ time, we encourage families to complete one survey per school that their children attend. If a parent/guardian has two children in the same school, they should complete the survey based on the experiences of the older child. If a parent/guardian has two children at two different schools, they should complete one survey per school. http://bit.ly/esffamily

Dear Parent/Guardian: We are preparing to celebrate students in a non-traditional way to keep everyone safe. Each of you has given consent at the beginning of the year to post your child's picture and name on our various media pages. We just want to give you an opportunity to opt-out of participating in virtual student celebrations if you do not want your child's name or picture posted on-line. If you allow your child to participate then there is no need to read any further. If you want to opt-out of your child's name and picture being posted on the district's webpage or social media page then complete the form below. If you have any questions please contact the school. https://forms.gle/2fR9TXcc8rhtQGQs5

I would like to thank the Yegua softball team for a shortened, but great first year for me! I truly believe this team had what it took to win district and make a big run in the playoffs! We were already undefeated in district! I hate it has ended this way, but health and safety of our players is bigger than the game. A special thanks to my seniors Gabby and Maddie for being great leaders all year long! You two will definitely be missed! Thanks again for the hard work! Now we need to get refocused for next year!
