First Day of School Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the difference between the schedules?

For the first three days we have modified schedule Wednesday (8/19), Thursday (8/20), and Friday (8/21). This will allow us to bring small groups of students on campus to pick up materials. For the modified schedule, students will see all teachers in order beginning with Advisory. Here is that schedule:

Beginning August 24, we will go to the adopted block schedule. Students will begin each day with Advisory and then three other blocks (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday). These blocks will include live meetings and access to teachers the entire time. Wednesdays will be an independent work day. This is time for students to complete work and study. This will also allow time to train teachers and work to deliver a great distance learning experience for your child.

THESE SCHEDULES START MONDAY, AUGUST 24.

What do I need to do before 9am Wednesday?
  • Check the school email. All students have a district issued Gmail account. The email is @eesd.org (ie 234215@eesd.org).
  • Log into PowerSchool to check your schedule. Make sure you know where to go tomorrow.
  • Sign in to your online classrooms (directions below)
How do I access my online classrooms?
  • BULLDOG PATHWAYS (7th and 8th)
  • BULLDOG TECH (Echo and Google Classroom)
    • (7th grade and new 8th graders) Go to https://bulldogtech.echo-ntn.org and use your student ID as your login and "changeme" as the password. Once in, you change your password by clicking the little arrow by the circle in the upper right header bar. Select "change password."
    • (8th graders) The login and password is the same as last year
    • Contact gwellington@eesd.org (8th graders) or ylam@eesd.org (7th graders) for support or to request a parent account.
    • Then, find your PE Google Classroom access codes here.
    • Go to classroom.google.com. Use the + sign to add the codes and enroll into your teachers' online classrooms
How do I find the link to my Zoom or Google Meet online meeting?

The link to your online classroom (Zoom or Google Meet) will be on your Google Classroom (Bulldog Pathways) or ECHO home page for each teacher. Access your online classroom to get the link. Also, never share a Zoom link with anyone. It's like sharing the keys to your classroom.

What is Advisory?

Advisory is the class every student will start with. It's a chance to check in with a teacher, get support, and develop strong school spirit. The class will also have weekly social emotional support lessons to help student develop strong skills for success.
