VIRTUAL ATTENDANCE COMMUNICATION:

Students: In the event that you are home on any given day and are well enough to stream into class, please email your teacher preferably the night before or first thing in the morning so that your teacher can prepare for your virtual attendance.  Please note that you will still be marked as absent- virtually present. Any absence, excused or unexcused will receive an automated alert notifying your parent(s) of your absence.  Absent- Virtually Present will be recorded in your attendance history which will reflect that the district is aware that you are attending virtually.

SAME CLEATS/NEW FEET PROJECT: Calling all athletes!  Do you have any cleats that are starting to feel a little small?  Give your old cleats a new lease on life by donating them in the box in the main office starting today, Wednesday, February 17th.  Your cleats will be taken to Venezuela over the summer and donated to kids in need as part of the Same Cleats/New Feet project.

We strongly urge students to pre-order lunch the night before or during the first period by 8:30 a.m.  By doing this the cafeteria staff can properly prepare the amount of lunch bags needed. The link is posted on our EMS website for both parents and students to access.  Students please be sure to coordinate with your parents as to who will be completing the form to avoid duplicate orders. New Lunch Ordering Form
