The cold weather has finally arrived. Throughout the months of inclement weather, we still want our children outside for recesses, jumping, running, and enjoying being a kid! Please make sure you send them to school dressed for the current weather. In extremely cold weather, we determine recess by the "real feel" temperature and keep them indoor if it is too cold.
If your child is spending lots of time indoor this winter, might I suggest that they spend time practicing their math facts or reading before being given "screen time"? Did you know research shows that children with higher reading and math skills end up having higher incomes, better housing and more professional roles in adulthood? So finish that math homework and read like crazy!

Moxee Elementary and East Valley Central have been selected to participate in the 2019 Student Travel Survey by the Washington State Departments of Transportation and Health. Parents of children in K – 8th grade may get a call to take the short survey. We encourage parents to participate, as the results will help improve student transportation. However, if you do not want to be called, please contact the Department of Health at 1-833-256-4654 and leave your phone number and name of your child’s school to remove yourself from the contact list.
Recently school districts in our area have been experiencing increased numbers of absences due to an influenza like illness. Since the flu can be very contagious and is a potentially serious illness, we have implemented steps for controlling the spread in our district.

Attention East Valley Families – After looking at a variety of options to meet the state’s requirements, the East Valley School District Board of Directors has decided to extend the 2018-2019 school-year to make up for lost instructional time due to our snow days this winter.
