Dear Parents and Staff,

We have now used five snow days this year. The school calendar included two (2) built-in snow days and the next three designated make-up days were listed as Friday, February 13, Thursday, April 2, and Monday, April 6. Therefore, school will now be in session on those three days for all K-12 students and staff.

Course Selections for 2015-2016 – Feb. 26, 2015

Dear Parents and Students,

On February 26th 2015, students will be preregistering for courses for the 2015-2016 academic year. During preregistration day, current teachers will be making recommendations to help students with course selections.

In homeroom, on Wednesday February 25th, students will receive the Program of Studies. The Program of Studies is also available on the EHS website and easily found by typing “Program of Studies” in the search bar. The Program of Studies website features a compilation of summer reading assignments and elective videos. The elective videos are the same videos recently broadcasted in homeroom leading up to course preregistration day.

Course selection is regarded as an important function and should be given very serious consideration. Students have the opportunity to discuss choices with parents, teachers, and counselor. During the spring semester counselors review courses that students selected. In May, students will receive a course verification sheet for parent review and signature to confirm requested courses.

If students or parents have any questions during this process, please feel free to contact the respective counselor.

Andrea Edmonds, Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs
David F. Piperato, Principal
