Redistricting Plan for Annapolis Elementary and Middle Schools


This spring, the Board of Education approved a sweeping redistricting plan for the Annapolis Peninsula, changing attendance boundaries for eight of the Annapolis cluster’s nine elementary schools and both of its middle schools - including Eastport - to better utilize space in facilities across the peninsula, reduce overcrowding issues, and establish a more neighborhood feel to school attendance areas. See a map of the new attendance areas for EES (PDF). The communities of Harbour House, Eastport terrace, Colony Hills, Parkwood/Springdale, Severn House, Fairview, August Woods and Spa Cove will attend Eastport Elementary as of this fall. We will have many more "walkers" with this neighborhood consolidation. Street and Sidewalk safety issues will develop as a result. Have a street, sidewalk, intersection, etc, of concern? Respond to the survey and get your views known now. Share this survey with friends and neighbors!

Prepare Me Annapolis Mobile App: Notifications of what's affecting the Annapolis area, including severe weather alerts, traffic reports, school & government closings, and more.

Wanted: Candidates for ECA Officers and Board Members

VOLUNTEER FOR FALL PLANTING ON MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY


The Eastport Civic Association's Eco-Action Committee is looking for some volunteers to help identify locations and to plant daffodil and tulip bulbs this fall.  We'd like to do the work on “Make a Difference Day” Saturday, October 28. “Make a Difference Day” is a national effort encouraging groups and individuals to volunteer in their community to improve the lives of others.

Volunteers  may order up to 100 tulip bulbs and 100 daffodil bulbs for each project. This year we will be offering red tulips and yellow Daffodils. The bulbs are free but only available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reservations for bulbs will be accepted starting Monday, September 11.  I can do this if we have a location to plant and enough volunteers.  Your suggestions are welcome.


Thanks!
