I am a father who lives out of town with two kids, in egly elementary. I have tried to get involved with the teachers and there staff through e-mail and by phone all this week. I was told by the assistant Principal they would set up a conference call by phone, about my kids education. I have yet to hear from any one? I am starting to get a bad vibe about this school? This is in regards to egly elementary!
