Athletic Events - ETMS

Student spectators may not attend ETMS athletic events without an adult.

Exception = Bison Fan Days:

Each sport will have a designated Bison Fan Day, where students may stay after school to cheer on their teams. The first Bison Fan Day will be for Volleyball on 9/26!

More information to come about these days.

End of Day - Transportation

We ask that you notify the office prior to 3:00 with any transportation changes for students that day.

This timeline allows us to communicate these changes to the teacher, while also supporting the daily routines and processes that occur during this busy part of the day.

Student Checkout:

It is difficult to check students out after 3:00 PM. If parents need to check students out early for an appointment, please avoid the 3:00-3:15 PM timeframe.

Thank you for partnering with us to ensure the safety for all ETMS Bison during dismissal.


Please remind students to charge their Chromebooks each night. Students should bring their Chromebooks to school fully charged every day. Thanks!

Bus Notes

Students who need to ride a different bus home than the one assigned to them will need to bring a signed parent/guardian note stating the change. If a student is planning to ride home on another student’s bus, both parties must bring a note stating the information with a parent/guardian signature.

All signed notes should be turned in to STAD by noon so the office can prepare a one-day ride pass for the student.
