Welcome Back!

back to schoolWe are so happy to be starting another school year with you. We realize this year will be different than any other year. However, we are so honored that you have entrusted us to have your children at ENSA. 

Due to DHEC regulations, parents will not be able to walk their students to their classrooms this year. Teachers of students in K4, K5, 1st grade and SPED will be available to greet their students at the front of the school. This will be for the first week ONLY. All other students will be escorted down to their classrooms by ENSA staff members. 

The second week of school ALL students will walk to their classrooms with guidance from ENSA staff members. Please drop off your students from 7:15 - 7:45am. Students are considered tardy if they arrive at school after 7:45am. 


Bus Riders

Bus with studentsParents who have students riding buses should have been contacted by the Transportation Office to give you a pick up/drop off time. Please remember that busses may be 10 minutes early or late for pickup/delivery. Our bus students are a part of the Taylors Transportation Center and the contact number is 864-355-7330 if you have any questions. 

Students in grades K4, K5, and first grades MUST be tagged and a parent MUST have a tag with the same number to receive the student at the bus stop. Otherwise, the child will be returned to the school and the guardian will be called to pick up the child at school. This procedure starts the first day of school. So, if you have not signed up for bus transportation before today, your student will not be able to ride the bus until you have completed the correct paperwork and it could take up to 2 weeks for the child to be able to ride the bus. If you completed the bus paperwork after July 31, your child will not be able to ride the bus until after Labor Day. 


Masks

It is MANDATORY that students in grades 2-5 wear a mask at school when they cannot socially distance. Schools will not provide students with masks unless there is an emergency.

Dismissal will begin at 2:15pm. Please have your car number placed in your window where it can be easily seen. If you do not have a car number, you will need to park and come into the school to get your student after you show your photo ID. This procedure starts the first day of school. Please be on time and patient in the car line the first couple of days as students get familiar with the process.

ENSA's Little Free Library

Looking for a book to read? Check out our small wooden book box that is located on the right side of the road by the ENSA school sign. Anyone may take a book or donate a book to share. The more the merrier! You don't need to return the exact book you borrowed, however, in order to keep the library full of good choices, please add a book or two to share. Happy Reading! 


Donors Choose Projects

Our teachers often have Donor Choose Grants that have been written to get supplies, instructional materials, equipment, etc. for their classrooms. If you or someone you know wants to donate to any of our current projects that need funding, please visit the East North Street Academy Donors Choose page.


School Visitor & Volunteer Guidelines

At East North Street Academy, we are excited to have volunteers working with our students and staff! There are a few things to remember if you would like to come and volunteer. Each adult who wants to visit the school (beyond the office) must have a valid ID that will be scanned on each visit to the school. This could be a valid Drivers License or State Issued ID. This strictly enforced district policy is to ensure the safety of everyone in our building and we appreciate your willingness to comply. 

Interested in chaperoning field trips or volunteering in your child's classroom? In an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff, Greenville County Schools has implemented additional security checks for school volunteers. All volunteers must submit an online application to the district and receive clearance before volunteering at any school/center or chaperoning any school field trip. Access School Visitor and Volunteer Guidelines if you  would like more information. It is important to remember that the approval process may take up to 2 weeks, so please plan ahead. This process must be repeated each school year.
