BRONCO BARN NEEDS VOLUNTEERS!
Published: Mon, Apr 2, 2018, 11:45AM CDT

The Bronco Barn sells useful and fun items like pens, pencils, other school supplies, and mints during lunchtime on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Barn is located just outside the main gym.

Staffing the Bronco Barn is a fun way to be involved at East and requires only a minimal time commitment. Although only 1 person is required to work the Barn each shift, it is much more fun (and pretty helpful!) to sign up with a friend. There are places for two people to sign up each shift, but only one is necessary, if you are comfortable working alone. Thanks for considering how you can help out! Please remember that a background check is required each year for all volunteers. Background Check Online

Volunteer today through the link below and watch for updates throughout the year! Never worked in the Barn before? No worries—we’ll walk you through it! Please click here on Bronco Barn Procedures more information or contact Jessi Davidson-Irizarry for additional instruction and support.

School Safety Reminder from CISD
Published: Mon, Mar 5, 2018, 05:00PM CST

Coppell ISD takes school safety very seriously. The health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff always will remain the district’s highest priority. In light of these recent trying times, the District asks that the lines of communication remain open with our students, as well as with our teachers, staff and administrators.

As we continue to look out for each other and keep, “If you see something; say something,” in mind, we remind you that CISD has an anonymous tip line available online at COPPELL ISD TIP LINE or by calling 972-436-TIPS (8477).

As always, 911 should be the first call in any emergency situation.
School counselors are available should students need any additional support. School principals and associate/assistant principals are also sources to share concerns.

If you are looking for resources on how to talk to your children about the recent school shooting or other tough topics that may be on your mind, PARENT TOOL KIT provides some additional tools and advice.
