UPCOMING BOARD MEETING

The next planned School Board Meeting is Monday, December 21st, at EHS, door #3, Room C115A, starting at 7:00 p.m.


Information about the monthly meetings can be found at this link. Most meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of the month.

IMPORTANT COVID PROTOCOL

Even though our district is continuing eLearning through Dec. 18th (followed by Winter Break with the expected return date of Monday, Jan. 4), it is very important that parents/guardians continue to call each of their children's schools when someone in the household has either been diagnosed with COVID or if the student has been a CLOSE CONTACT of someone who has tested positive for COVID.

If this situation happens while on Winter Break (Dec. 21 - Jan. 3), you must email each of your children's building principals to notify them. Attaching any additional paperwork at the time will help them better understand when your children can return.
