Full Steam Ahead

Dear East Farms Families,


It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new principal of East Farms STEAM Magnet School. My name is Rachel Schuerman and it is a true honor and privilege to be part of such a wonderful community. Throughout the year, I look forward to learning more about the students at East Farms and participating in all the amazing work that is being done to enhance the learning environment. 


As we look forward to the reopening for the 2020-21 school year, the East Valley School District wants to make sure the health and safety of our students, staff, and families is a priority.  Over the past few months we have been working very diligently to ensure that our building is safe and the necessary systems and procedures are in place as students and staff return to the building.


This year we will kick the school year off by holding parent/teacher conferences on September 9, 10 and 11. These conferences will be set up by the classroom teachers and an option of Zoom or in-person will be offered to each and every family. Families will receive a Sign-Up genius invitation to schedule a conference time that best fits your needs. During your scheduled time you will be provided with an outline of the hybrid model that is specific to your child's weekly schedule. In addition, students will check out their technology device, receive a take home school supply kit (if needed), as well as student login and password information. Teachers will also provide an overview of the safety measures that we have put into place. Please allow enough time to fill out the attestation paperwork, as well as time to have all members of the family have a temperature check upon arrival. We ask that you limit the number of family members that attend the conference so that we can continue to follow social distancing guidelines.  


The East Valley School District will be providing free breakfast and lunch to ALL students through December 2020. Please be sure to turn in your free and reduced lunch paperwork to the office. This year our school will have breakfast and lunch delivered to the classrooms. If you choose to send your child with a cold lunch this is an option as well. 


In closing, please be mindful as we navigate this pandemic and the reopening of our school. Masks, attestation forms, and temperature checks are mandatory upon entry of the building. We look forward to seeing all your smiling faces and we are excited to have the opportunity to welcome all of you back to our school. 


Most Sincerely,

Mrs. Rachel Schuerman

Principal, East Farms STEAM Magnet School
