Congratulations to Jordan Brannon on being named Teacher of the Year
by the Boys and Girls Club of Alton!

Jordan is a kindergarten teacher here at East Elementary. Her dedication and compassion for her students are visible when entering the classroom. Her dedication to the profession is shown through her great sense of humor, being a volunteer for the ROAR program and a District Mentor. 



Morning Information

Students should not be dropped off before 7:15am. There is no supervision available during this time. If you would like your child to eat breakfast at school, they need to arrive by 7:50am. This will allow them to eat as well as make it to class on time.


Building doors remained locked at all times for the safety and protection of our students and staff. All visitors must be buzzed in through the front doors and report to the office to sign in and receive a visitor pass. To preserve the learning environment within the classrooms, we require anappointment to be made in advance for all observations within the classroom. Please see someone in the office to make an appointment and fill out the appropriate paperwork.

Parent Pickup

If you pick up your child, please arrive no later than 2:40 p.m.  We close the back door at that time, and take students upstairs to the office because the duty for pick-up personnel ends at that time.  Our office is too small to accommodate a large number of students.  Thank you for your cooperation.
