Information For New Eagles

Grade 9 Information

The staff at East Elgin S.S. are excited to welcome your child into a new class of Grade 9's this September. To help students and families transition from elementary to high school at East Elgin in these unique circumstances, we've created an online resource. This website has been designed specifically for our new class of Grade 9's, and includes a virtual tour of the school, a Q & A section, and videos of support staff to help your student familiarize themselves with helpful faces they will see frequently in September.

It is our hope that your family finds this online resource useful, and perhaps reduces some of the nerves that come with starting at a new school. We can't wait to meet your students - the future East Elgin Class of 2024!

Locks and Lockers - Lockers not in use during COVID
Lockers are assigned to students, but they remain the property of the school.  They may, under special circumstances, be opened and inspected by school administrators.  Combination locks must be used and the combination must be kept on file in the office so that we can help students who have forgotten their combinations.  Students are responsible for their lockers and are to report any damage or defacement to the office.  Lockers are to be cleaned out and locks removed upon leaving school each year.  Students MUST USE ONLY the locker assigned and lockers are not to be shared.
