New Student Resources

Welcome to East-West!

Here is a list of resources that will prepare you for your first weeks at East-West.

Summer Bridge

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

8:00 AM to 2:30 PM

Summer Bridge is a mandatory day-long orientation with a series of workshops and presentations for families and students to introduce all incoming students to our school culture and policies.

Lunch will be provided by our outstanding PTA.  There will also be a number of staff members and students available to answer any questions or concerns.

New Students will receive a welcome packet in the mail which will include the following information:

You can use this time to explore our school website including the links below:


There is an excellent link for parents on the DOE site that will explain, with visuals, how DOE Transportation works:

There is yellow bus service only for 6th graders who live a mile or more from the school and still reside within District 25, or for students who are disabled and require bus accommodations.

If the child is a 7th or 8th grader, there is no yellow bus but he/she will receive a full metrocard if the distance is 1.5 miles or more.

Eligible students for yellow bus service or reduced metrocards will receive letters home.


ORDER NOW TO ENSURE DELIVERY BEFORE SCHOOL BEGINS. Do not wait until Summer Bridge to purchase uniforms.

If you are unsure about sizing, it is a good idea to order a larger size. You can visit Ideal Uniform's office to purchase uniforms in person. The link below has more information.
