Wear Red for Ed!

As the school year begins, the Alameda Education Association (teacher’s union) is back at the bargaining table with AUSD fighting for a competitive wage. As a symbol of their dedication and lasting stamina to demand a fair wage, teachers plan to WEAR RED every Friday. PLEASE JOIN US in supporting our wonderful Earhart teachers and all teachers across the island who will make the same stand on their school campus. Just a reminder that our teachers receive the lowest pay in all of Alameda County. Simply put most can not afford to live here and work here which means we lose many, bright, dedicated, inspiring teachers to other nearby districts. If you are on campus after school on Friday, please join us in the photo and help us show that our wonderful Earhart staff is supported by parents and students.

You may also want to donate to the Go Fund Me page set up to purchase every teacher in Alameda a red anchor shirt.

Join the Earhart Bike Train!

Meeting Time: 8:00am SHARP | Meeting Point: Corner of Mecartney and Island Drive

What is it?
Safe Routes to Schools defines it best. “Bike trains are groups of parents and kids who ride together from the same neighborhood along a designated route…. Adults share the responsibility of getting the kids to school safely, which saves time for all of them, and the kids get exercise that helps them focus in school.”

Why should you join the Earhart Bike train?
Meet your neighbors
Build community
Reduce traffic
Help the environment

Why should you join the Earhart Bike train?
Parents and children will meet at 8:00AM SHARP at the corner of Mecartney and Island Drive.
Two or three parents (depending on how large the train becomes) will ride to school with all the children.
It’s that simple!

If you’re interested in joining the bike train, please contact Lisa Bryant to show your interest.

More Info I'm Interested!

🚶 Morning Drop-off Safety Issues

As we settle into the school year, and the daily complications of the morning drop-off routine, here are a few friendly reminders:
There is no parking inside the drop-off circle, unless you are escorting a student in our Special Day Class or with a handicapped placard, or after 8:30 am if you are escorting a TK student.
The White Curb on Packet Landing is for active unloading of children. You must stay with your car. 2 minute maximum stay at the curb.
If you need to escort your child into school, PARK LEGALLY
Do not park at the Red Painted Curbs or block the Fire Lanes for the neighboring communities.
If you are waiting for another person after they have escorted a student into campus, you must park legally off campus. Do not wait for them either in the circle or on the Packet Landing White Curb.

It has also come to the attention of the PTA that students are being dropped off on Island Drive in the emergency turnouts - and sometimes along the road at the traffic light! Several Earhart teachers and parents have reported seeing this happening. This is extremely unsafe! It is better to be late to school than to have a child injured.

Thank you to everyone for understanding, cooperating and making our morning drop-off routine run as safely and smoothly as possible!

A/V Support Needed

Did you know that Earhart volunteers record every student performance on campus?

Our dedicated A/V team uses professional equipment to record each performance, then edits and posts those videos to the secure Science Lab website. This means as parents, we can simply sit back and enjoy the moment!
Each grade has multiple classes and performances and this is a BIG job that shouldn't fall on one or two sets of shoulders. We are asking for volunteers from each grade to signup to run the equipment in order to share the load.
If this is something you may be interested in, please reach out to our A/V Support Chair, Archie Tingle, for more information.
