Elkhart Community Schools recognizes that good communication between the school and parents is critical to a child’s success. Our schools are ready to answer your questions or address any concerns you may have. For contact information for your child’s school, please see the Schools page.

We also recognize that when our offices are closed, you may still have questions about your child’s progress. PowerSchool is the Elkhart Community Schools’ online portal for all student information, including report cards, test scores, absences/tardies and monitoring lunch money balances. PowerSchool is used district-wide and updated in real time.

Elkhart Community Schools also uses School Messenger, a program that aids us in contacting parents with messages about school, including closings and delays. Parents are able to set their preferences to receive text alerts, emails and phone calls for a variety of subject matters through School Messenger. Access to your School Messenger account is done through PowerSchool’s Contact Manager.

It is our goal to engage not only children in the educational process, but also parents and the community.

Congratulations to Matt Hartman, who received Elkhart Community Schools’ Teacher of the Year Award. Mr. Hartman is an Art Teacher at Memorial High School, and has been with ECS for 16 years. According to staff and students, Mr. Hartman has not only helped transform the art program at Memorial High School, but has also made significant contributions to the community. Mr. Hartman’s students call him upbeat, creative, gentle, supportive, inspirational, patient and encouraging. Mr. Hartman’s efforts, combined with the hard work of his students, have raised over $30,000 for CAPS (Child And Parent Services) by painting two of the Elkhart elk and $13,000 towards the Elkhart General Hospital Foundation by painting two of the Elkhart hearts. ECS is extremely proud to call Mr. Matt Hartman our Teacher of the Year.
