Tri 2 & 3 Schedule Review

Today is the last day of Trimester 2 and 3 Schedule review week. This is the only opportunity for students to review their classes and make any changes for Trimester 2 and 3. More information and all of the forms are available in Schoology in an update from Beth Streit dated Monday, November 9.


It is very important that we are informed about any students being tested for COVID due to exposure and also any positive COVID tests in your family group. We are obligated to do record keeping for the District, county and state. Also- we may have to help with contact tracing. Call Nicole Palmer, School Nurse at EHS 651-683-6917

How is Attendance Being Recorded in Distance Learning?

All students need to open the Campus app in their iPads, EVERY DAY Monday through Friday and check in for attendance. Since students are not coming into school for Hybrid classes at this time, teachers are not taking attendance in CAMPUS - students must check in! By doing so a student is marked as "present" for the school day Monday through Friday. Thank you!
