Dear Friends,

The start of a new school year is always an exciting time at Eastside, but this year is truly like no other – we are so glad to have all of our students and faculty back on campus after a year of distance learning.

I know our students are eager to jump in and explore new classes and activities, and that they’re looking forward to the little things, too: joking with teachers before class starts, kicking a soccer ball around on the playing field, or greeting Helen’s dog Dakota as she lounges outside her office.

Although we’re all relieved to regain a certain level of normalcy, COVID-19 is still a serious concern, and we’re taking lots of precautions to keep our students and staff safe. Please click here to read more about our reopening plan.

I’m incredibly proud of our students for persevering through distance learning, and I know that they’ll continue working hard to achieve their shared goal of becoming first-generation college students and graduates. We’re looking forward to helping each of them navigate the next steps of their journeys to success, and I’d like to thank everyone who is supporting them along the way.
