Eagle Camp is a fun and spirit-filled way to welcome students to campus to meet their teachers and classmates. It's also a great opportunity to familiarize them with the building prior to the first day of school. Camps take place the week before school starts.
Please see the August tab in the Upcoming Dates and Deadlines section above for details.
The Eagles Nest campus store has gone virtual! Get your spirit wear essentials like athletic uniforms, shirts, outerwear, embroidered bows, hats, and a little bit of everything else. A limited selection of spirit wear items can also be found in the Resale Shop. Check us out on Instagram @eaglesnestesd for information regarding sales, curbside hour updates and new items!
*Please refer to the Lower School Handbook in Veracross for approved spirit wear items.
ESD+ offers before and after-school interest-based programs such as chess, archery, fine arts, engineering, and more, for lower school students. These programs are led by lower school faculty and meet weekly throughout the school year.
ESD+ Kids on Campus (KOC) and Nesters provide extended day care for lower school students staffed by lower school faculty.
Registration for KOC/Nesters opened on July 10 and ESD+ program registration opened July 17. Registration closes for all programs on August 11.
Have a question, need an answer, but not sure who to send it to? Lower School now has their own account for general, non-child-specific questions. Feel free to reach out, and someone on the Leadership Team will respond back promptly. LSquestions@esdallas.org
We’ve created an in-house point of contact for all new families with questions about anything school-related. Our new family liaison is the first point of contact for all new families with any questions about ESD’s lower school (curriculum, schedules, conferences, parking, chapel, carpool, etc.) Our PA does (and will continue to do) an amazing job welcoming new families into the ESD culture. We thought it only right to add an internal layer of support for our new Eagle families. For New Family questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
MAY 22, 2023 is the deadline to submit the lifetime immunization record. (New families only)
AUGUST 1, 2023 is the deadline to submit all supplemental medical forms including annual physicals. Please have your physician complete the Annual Physical Form. All students must have a new physical every year.
All medical records and forms must be submitted through Magnus Health through the Veracross parent portal. Login to Veracross, scroll down to the Resources section, and click Student Health Forms (Magnus). We cannot accept forms sent directly to the school.
Magnus Health is the provider of our secure web-based electronic medical record system and your child’s health records will be initiated online. This information is HIPAA and FERPA protected and is unique to each student.
