Safety & Security Reminder: A Message From Our Principal

Hello EV Families!  This is just a quick reminder that when you visit the school to please lock your car and hide or secure all of your valuable items.  Last week an incident was reported by a member of our community that items were stolen from her car in just a matter of 3 minutes.  Fortunately all of her belongings were recovered, however it does serve as a reminder that even if you’re just visiting the school for a few minutes in the front office to please lock your vehicle and keep your valuables hidden or with you.  At a different school that I have previously been employed, this would happen during ASP hours as parents would rush in the building to check their child out and forget to lock their car.  We also noticed an increase of this behavior around the holidays as well. 

Thank you and please remember to lock your vehicles before entering the building each visit. Thank you!

Honoring Our Heroes Essay Contest

Eastvalley has kicked off the annual Honoring Our Heroes Essay Program on Veteran's Day, November 12, 2018! The theme of this year's essay contest is "Everyday Heroes: The Power of One".
