Seattle Public Schools will host five community meetings to share information on the District’s five-year Strategic Plan, with tailored comments, topics and data from each of the five educational regions. These meetings are designed to engage families, students, staff and community members in ideas to ensure academic success for every one of our students. There will also be time for participants to ask questions of the Superintendent and District leadership. For the complete text click HERE.
We need your donations to make this event a success. Save clothing in wearable condition, household items others could use, books and music for fresh ears and eyes to enjoy, furniture in good condition, toys, games and puzzles with all pieces and parts and sporting equipment for a budding athlete.
Mark your calendar and come to the Rummage Sale on Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. There will be great deals to be had, baked goods, and music from our very own award winning jazz combos.

Some of you may have heard from your students about changes to the dress code this year.
The good news is:
· There are only two changes to the existing dress code
· The affected clothing can still be worn with modification
The not so good news is:
· Even though we have delivered the information to students in a number of different ways, there are still some misunderstandings
· When we were unable to share this information with parents during Open Houses, it got lost in the opening of school shuffle
SO to clarify…
1. The explanation of the dress code policy can be found in the student’s planner on page 7.
2. The two changes relate to yoga pants/leggings and tank tops
a. Both are allowed but not as the outside layer of clothing
b. For yoga pants and leggings, another item (tunic, shorts, skirt) must be worn that extends over the gluteal region (please see above)
c. For tank tops, our guideline is a width of three fingers. Our main objective is to have it fit well enough so that the chest and abdominals are not exposed (for boys) and that undergarments are completely covered (for girls)
3. Students who do not meet dress code will be allowed to call home and given appropriate attire to wear back to class so they do not miss instruction. It is up to the student to return to the office to retrieve any items dropped off from home.
We appreciate your support with this and understand that our communication could have been better. Thank you for supporting Eckstein in our efforts to maintain a respectful environment focused on learning.
