Eastlake Credo: At Eastlake, through intentional actions, we create an environment where students and staff feel safe, appreciated and loved.This is Eastlake.This is home. This is family.
Dear Wolves,

We continue to prepare for the implementation of a hybrid model on April 19. As a summary, here is what we know now.

  • In the secondary student survey, Dr. Holmen stated, “Given the parameters outlined by the governor, we will make every effort to keep students and teachers aligned in their current classes, but some schedule changes may need to occur.”

  • We continued to finalize the list of students who chose in-person versus hybrid, as well as navigate all the staffing implications of this reopening.

  • The in-person schedules will be two days a week with an AA/BB schedule and asynchronous Wednesdays. Online students will be served concurrently with in-person students.

  • The in-person school day for high school will be 5 hours and 35 minutes.

  • Periods 1, 3, 5 and 7 will continue to meet on Monday and Thursday while Periods 2, 4 and 6 will meet on Tuesdays and Fridays. Wolf Time will also be built into the Tuesday and Friday schedules.

  • School start times will move back to standard school start times for all secondary schools, which is 7:30 for Eastlake.

We appreciate your patience as this process unfolds. By the end of next week, we should have more specifics about the hybrid schedule.

Soon after, we will outline all Covid protocols to ensure a safe reopening. As a reminder, please work with your students to double down on wearing masks and social distancing. We don’t want unsafe behaviors to jeopardize our ability to not only open but stay open.

Wolf Strong, Pack Strong

Stand with our AAPI Community
The most recent murder of Asian women has highlighted the failure of this nation to protect the AAPI community from rising violence in this nation. We must remember that violence exists on a spectrum that ranges from 'joke' and name calling all the way to murder. The AAPI community has been asking the larger community to step in and intervene as hate has spread like a virus throughout our nation and those pleas have largely fallen on deaf ears. As members of the Eastlake community it is our job to ensure that our AAPI Eastlake staff and students feels seen, heard, and protected. We expect all Eastlake community members to intervene if they see hate speech online, or if they hear hate speech when we are back in person. When we say we stand in solidarity with a group of people who are hurting we must remember that this is an action phrase. There are many ways you can choose to intervene, but if you are unsure what to say see list of suggested interruptions. It is also important to report hate crime when you come across it as well, this includes hate speech. Below is a website where you can report it, but also remember to go to administration if it is an Eastlake student. Finally get involved, below are links for ways to do that.
To our AAPI members we know you are grieving, we know you are tired, if you are looking for a safe space to be with other AAPI people The Asian Cultural Club would like to provide a safe space for students to discuss these issues. If anyone is interested in joining our team space, please have them send me an email: eklaka@lwsd.org .
