March 23, 2020 Update
Last week, Eastpointe Community Schools distributed more than 4,000 breakfasts and 4,000 lunches to our students! With the governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order that was issued today, we want to assure our Eastpointe families that continuing student food distribution is an essential service that we plan to continue to provide for our students. Much like a trip to the grocery store or pharmacy, families can continue to make these brief trips out of their homes for food.
We will continue to provide these grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. However, we will be consolidating our sites to better use our staff, based on turnout from this past week. Starting Wednesday, food will be distributed from Bellview, Crescentwood, Eastpointe High School, Eastpointe Middle School, and Pleasantview. Please remember that you can visit ANY school site to pick up meals, not just the one your child attends. As always, details can be found on our website at eastpointeschools.org/coronavirus/food-services.
March 19, 2020 Update
As information continues to change rapidly at this time, we want to remind our families and the Eastpointe community at large that the only official sources of information related to Eastpointe Community Schools are:
- This website
- Our district Facebook page: facebook.com/EastpointeCommunitySchools
- Robocalls and emails from the district office OR your child's school
It is ESSENTIAL in this time of uncertainty that our families know where to find accurate information. We are providing updated and accurate information to our families as quickly as we can and will continue to do so on these platforms.
March 17, 2020 Update
We have heard questions from some parents about how school work will be distributed during this extended closure. Each building has developed its own plans for their students, so your child’s teacher or other building staff member is always the best one to contact about plans for your child’s class.
Each building’s plan for distributing materials this week can be found on our Remote Learning website.
Please note that ALL student Google Classroom passwords have been reset to minimize confusion over forgotten passwords. Secondary students using Google Classroom should be receiving a letter with new log-in information within the next day or two.
March 15, 2020 Food Services Update
In response to Michigan’s COVID-19 school closure, Eastpointe Community Schools (ECS), in partnership with its food service employees (AFSCME - Local 120), has developed the following plan to continue food service to ECS students. Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, ECS families will be able to pick up grab-and-go meals for their children from any Eastpointe school location. Please click here for detailed information.
March 14, 2020 Food Services Update
We know there is a lot of concern about Eastpointe Community Schools students who may be in need of meals during this extended school closure. A plan is currently being finalized to distribute food to our students. We’re planning a drive-up model similar to our monthly Gleaners food distribution, available at all ECS school buildings. Families can expect more detailed information tomorrow evening through all official district communications, including our website, Facebook, and through school robocall and email messaging.
Again, we thank you all for your patience as we continue to work to find ways to help our students and families during this unprecedented situation.

Buildings will be open today (March 13) if students need to pick up essential items like medication or coats. Further information will be provided this afternoon. Official updates will continue to be provided both on the district's official Facebook page and on the district website.
We know that there are many more questions than answers at this time. We ask for your patience as we work to find these answers as quickly as possible.
