Join Us for Back to School Night!

All East Canton Elementary and Little Hornet Preschool students and families are invited to our “Back To School” evening.  This is a great opportunity to meet your teacher, bring in your school supplies, pay school/lunch fees, and sign-up for the YMCA latchkey program.  We will be mailing letters to all students in August with your child’s teacher information and a school supply list.  You can also access the school supply lists online now at www.ecweb.sparcc.org.  

The “Back to School'' evening will be held on August 17th from 4:00p.m. to 6:30p.m.  There will be an important meeting for all 4th and 5th grade students and parents in the auditorium at 6:00pm.  See you there!

  • Food Service Information

    We will offer breakfast from 7:25a.m. to 7:45a.m. each school day for students in grades K-5 as they enter the building.  Breakfast will be “Grab and Go” style, and the students will eat their breakfast in their classroom as they prepare for the day.  ALL students will receive free breakfast.  

    Students will have to pay for lunch unless their family qualifies for Free or Reduced price lunches.  The full price for Elementary Student Lunches during the 2023-2024 school year is $3.25, and milk is $.60.   We are requesting that ALL families apply for Free/Reduced meals prior to September.  Many of the grants and opportunities that become available to our district is based on the percentage of families qualifying for free or reduced services.

    Please note that paperwork for free and reduced lunches must be filled out each year and submitted within the first month of school for updating purposes. You can apply online via a link under the free and reduced tab, or fill out a paper application. If at any time during the school year you believe that your student may qualify for free or reduced lunch, please call the Elementary office at 330-488-0392, and we will be happy to send home a new application.

  • Student Handbooks

    The dress code will remain the same as in the past.  Please be reminded that ALL shoes and sandals must have a strap securing them to the child’s feet.  Shower shoes, slides, and flip-flops are not permitted.  We are requiring this out of safety for your child.  Secondly, students will not be permitted to wear halter, tank, spaghetti strap or bare midriff tops. 

    Book bags should be of the shoulder strap carrying type.  No book bags with suitcase type wheels will be permitted, and no toys of any kind are to be brought to school at any time unless directed to do so by a teacher.  

    The full 2023-24 Student Handbook can be located online at www.ecweb.sparcc.org under the Elementary tab.  Please contact Mrs. Carter with questions and concerns.

  • Important School Dismissal Information

    We are proud of the fact that we safely dismiss all 380+ of our Elementary students in a very quick and efficient manner.  In order for us to continue to refine this process and most importantly, keep our students safe, it is vital that everyone is familiar with the process and follows our guidelines.

    Students are dismissed in the following methods:

    • As a Bus Rider
    • As a Car Rider
    • As a Walker
    • To YCare or seasonal after school programs such as GOTR or Jumpsters & Hoopsters

    Below are important guidelines that ALL must follow in order to keep the children safe.  

    • MOST IMPORTANT:  Children will always be dismissed in their regular fashion unless the office receives a written note in the morning of the dismissal change.  If an emergency occurs requiring an unexpected dismissal change throughout the day, the parent must call Mrs. Broad in the Elementary office before 1:30p.m.  (Examples of an emergency include doctor’s visits, car trouble, etc.) Calls received after 1:30p.m. can not be accommodated. (In the most extreme situations, the student will be held in the office until a parent can pick him/her up).
    • Due to full bus capacities, children are NOT permitted to ride a bus other than their regularly assigned route.
    • Walkers will be dismissed out Door #1 by the flagpole after the buses leave. 
    • Car Riders will begin being dismissed @2:20p.m.  Parents MUST follow the established traffic loop around the sidewalk.  
      • Parents may NOT park and call their children through the traffic or walk over and get their children out of the car rider line or the bus line.  This is a safety hazard and greatly interferes with the flow of the traffic.
      • All cars picking up the children should request a car tag to hang from their rearview mirror.  The tag has information on it that makes the pick-up process more expedient.
      • Remember the teachers and staff are diligently watching all students during pick-up time.  So that they may keep student safety as their number one priority, please do not use pick-up/dismissal time as a time to engage in conversation or ask important questions.  The teachers and staff are available by e-mail, phone, or conference other times throughout the day.
      • Anyone picking up a child should have their ID readily available upon request.
  • Welcome to Mrs. Broad

    East Canton Elementary was blessed to have Mrs. Jan Edwards serving as the Secretary (aka master of all) for 25 years!  Mrs. Edwards entered a well deserved retirement in June of this year.  She will be dearly missed by all and has our sincerest gratitude for the great care she took of our students, parents, and staff.

    Although we can never fully replace Mrs. Edwards, we are very excited to introduce Mrs. Megan Broad as the new Elementary secretary!  Mrs. Broad is a 2004 graduate of East Canton, a member of the community, and a parent (the most important job of all!).  She has been working directly with Mrs. Edwards, and she has many diverse experiences which will help her fill the empty shoes in the office.  

    You can reach Mrs. Broad by calling 330-488-0392.  She will be happy to greet you and help find the answers to any questions you may have.  We welcome Mrs. Megan Broad to our team at East Canton Elementary School!
