Starting Off The New Year

Happy New Year Hornet Families!

We here at EHS hope that you had a great winter break and that you and your families enjoyed our snowy holiday.

After spending a week trapped in my house with my adult children, I was ready to come back to school!

Students and staff are busily preparing for the end of 1st semester. You should see your students finishing up projects, polishing up those writing assignments, and studying for those end of the semester finals. Please encourage your students to stay in close communication with their teachers and to give it their all to finish the semester strong.

In this edition of the news letter we are excited to share some changes that are happening at EHS. You will find information about our new harassment, intimidation, and bullying (HIB) reporting system, our revised bell schedule for 2nd semester, and some exciting happenings at the high school to kick off the new year.

Go Hornets!

New - Vector Alert System

Safety is one of our district’s top priorities and to help safeguard our school community, we’ve taken an important step that I want to share with you.

Our district is now using Vector Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration five different ways:

1. App: Search for “Vector Alert” in the App Store to download for free

2. Phone: 360.625.6686

3. Text: Text your tip to 360.625.6686

4. Email: 2131@alert1.us

5. Web: http://2131.alert1.us

You and your student can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism, threats of violence, or any safety issue you're concerned about through Vector Alert. When you submit a tip, be sure to use our school’s identification code: 2131 in your communication.

Every tip Vector Alert receives about our district is immediately logged in the system and EHS administration is notified so that we can investigate and take appropriate action. And, tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.

Together, using Vector Alert, we can make our school a safer place to work and learn! Thanks in advance for your support.

Attendance Matters

Attendance Did You Know?

  • Students should miss no more than 9 days of school each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation.

  • Frequent absences can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with school work, dealing with a bully or facing some other difficulty.

  • By 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school.

  • By 9th grade, attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.

  • Missing 10%, or 2 days a month, over the course of the school year, can affect a student’s academic success.

EHS Schedule Change - 2nd Semester

We are changing our daily schedule on January 31, 2022, the first day of 2nd Semester. The change involves moving Hornet Time from 4th period to 2nd Period and we will be reducing from 4 lunches to 2 lunches.

Here is a link to the new schedule for your information -
