Daily announcements will also be published and available to all students at Eastwood High School and Penta Career Center.Back To Top
The American's with Disabilities Act (A.D.A.) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act provide that no individual will be discriminated against on the basis of a disability. This protection applies not just to the student, but all individuals who have access to the district's programs and facilities. The Eastwood Local School District provides a variety of Special Education programs and services for students identified as having a disability defined by the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
A student can access Special Education services through the proper evaluation and placement procedures. Parent involvement in this procedure is required. More importantly, the school wants the parent to be an active participant. To inquire about the procedure or programs, a parent should contact a guidance counselor.
Parents, who believe their child may have a disability that substantially limits major life activities of their child, should contact the Special Ed Director at 833-6411.Back To Top
Eastwood High School charges specific fees for various courses and activities. Such fees or charges are determined by the cost of materials, freight/handling fees, and add-on fees for loss or damage to school property. The school and staff do not make a profit. Fees may be waived in situations where there is financial hardship. Contact the principal for more information on waivers.
Students using school property and equipment can be fined for excessive wear and abuse of the property and equipment. The fine is used to pay for the damage, not to make a profit.
Failure to pay fines, fees or charges may result in the withholding of grades, credits, or diplomas. Returned checks will be assessed a $25 fee.Back To Top

Tornado drills will be conducted during the tornado season using the procedures prescribed by the state. Maps in each room identify tornado safety stations.
TORNADO DRILLS WILL BE ANNOUNCED OVER THE PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM. Should this fail, administrators and office personnel will move about the building to notify students and teachers. All students should proceed to the designated area (directions are posted in each classroom). When the drill begins, the following procedures will be in effect:
When the weather or other circumstances dictate that it would be inadvisable to conduct classes, students and their parents through local radio and television stations.
Since these stations are notified as soon as the decision is made, calling the school personnel or the Superintendent is unnecessary. All attempts are made to notify the public as soon as possible so individual arrangements can be made at home.Back To Top
Visitors, particularly parents, are welcome at school. In order to properly monitor the safety of students and staff, each visitor must report to the office upon entering the school. Any visitor found in the building without permission shall be reported to the principal. If a person wishes to confer with a member of the staff, they should call for an appointment prior to coming to the school in order to prevent any inconvenience.
If the visitor is another student from another school, permission must be obtained from the principal at least one week prior to the visit. If the visit is approved, the student visitor must obtain a Visitor's Pass. Only high school students will be permitted to visit. Individuals who have graduated from high school will not be permitted to visit Eastwood High School.Back To Top

A student is assigned to a study hall when he/she does not have a scheduled class meeting during that time period. A study hall is to be used by the student to complete assignments, to attend the library, or to complete work of individual interest. It is not a place for continual student visitations. All students are asked to have some type of study material or leisure reading material with them when they report to their study halls. Having to go to their lockers during the study period causes unnecessary hallway disturbances. It is important to remember that a study hall is similar to an assigned class, and appropriate classroom behavior is expected. If used productively, study halls can significantly decrease the amount of schoolwork that has to be completed in the evening or on the weekend.Back To Top
Backpacks will be permitted to be brought to school. Backpacks can be very cumbersome and take up a great deal of space. Therefore, it is recommended that students leave the backpacks in their lockers during the school day and take the necessary books and materials with them to classes. Different teachers may require students to leave their book bags in their lockers.Back To Top
