An image of our Eastover-Central Mascot, the blue Champion HorseDear Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts Family Members,

As we approach the beginning of a new school year, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to another exciting year at Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts.  I would also like to thank you and say that I am honored to be a part of such a great school and community.  This year is much different than in years past, as we will begin the school year remotely.  Although we are not starting as we hoped, we are still very excited to have the opportunity to work with your children!

In order to help your student become better prepared for the first day of school, we will hold two separate Virtual Open Houses using Google Meet.  This will be an excellent time for you to get acquainted with your Champion’s new teacher.  You will only need to go to one of these.  They will be recorded if you are not able to make it.  To gain access to this meeting, please visit our school website and the link to your child’s class will be available.  Our website is www.ecnes.ccs.k12.nc.us .  These links will be posted on August 12th.  You will also receive a call on August 12th from your child’s teacher to introduce themselves.  Please let them know at this time which Virtual Open House you plan to attend.
