  • New principal named at EAMS

    Effective Jan. 21, 2020, Mrs. Kristie Love will serve as the principal at East Alexander Middle School. Mrs. Love currently serves as the assistant principal at East Iredell Elementary School. “I am so happy to be a part of the East Alexander family! I will work hard to build a strong positive learning environment. I believe all students can learn and will work with the staff to instill a positive growth mindset. Together we are Falcons flying to Success...One School, One Goal,” stated Mrs. Love. Prior to her current position, Mrs. Love served as the assistant principal at West Iredell Middle School. “Both of the schools (East Iredell Elementary and West Iredell Middle School) where Mrs. Love has worked most recently are similar demographically to East Alexander Middle School. She understands the needs of at-risk children while supporting academic growth,” stated Associate Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Curry. “Mrs. Love has a strong background in curriculum and instruction, as well as all things management, having served as a discipline, testing, and transportation coordinator,” continued Dr. Curry.

  • Parents...please plan to use multiple communication sources for weather-related information over the next few days.  The school system will continue to use the automated call system to alert parents of school delays, dismissals, and cancellations.  In the event you do not receive a call, you should also check the district website, district social media, WACB AM 860 radio, or Breaking News with the Taylorsville Times.

    The likelihood that all surrounding school systems will also be making calls during the same timeframe is extremely high.  This could overload phone lines and cell towers. 

    Thank you for your cooperation.

  • Early Closing of School  

    In case of snow or icy conditions which occur during the school day and cause hazardous driving conditions, school may be dismissed early. If school is dismissed early, announcements about school closings due to weather or other emergencies are communicated through a telephone-based notification service. This is our primary source for disseminating information to parents and staff. When possible, we also contact the following radio stations: WACB-AM (860), WKVS (103.3); and television stations: WBTV (Channel 3), WSOC (Channel 9), WCNC (Channel 36), WXII (Channel 12) and Fox News 18. 
    Parents, please contact the office to update your contact information if it changes at any point in the year.
