February is Black History Month
Black History Month Continues at EHS
Did Your Student Miss School Photos in August? Do You Want to Have a Student Photo in the Yearbook?
These grade 9, 10 and 11 photos will be added to our Yearbook as well. Students will be in the building in the hallway by the Auditorium for the photo stations.
Wednesdays - Student Support and Help Offered at EHS - Teachers will be in Classrooms! Winter Trimester ends on Friday, March 12.
Breakfast and lunch will be served - free for students.
Buses will travel the usual routes but two hours later in the morning pickup.
As we near the end of the trimester, please do come to EHS to catch up, make up missing work and get more support for your classes.
8th Annual Interact Club Jeans/Pants/Laundry Detergent Drive February 22-March 1.
Let’s kickoff our new Hybrid Learning week with an effort to help others. Do you have any jeans/pants/sweatpants that you can donate to our drive? All pants will be donated to the Mission Outpost in Burnsville. All sizes/styles of pants are appreciated. We will also be collecting Laundry Detergent that will be donated to The Open Door. Both organizations have an increased need for these items. The Open Door has asked for laundry detergent bottles smaller than 96 ounces (in an effort to support more families). Donated items can be placed in Interact Club tubs at both EHS Entrances (or, students can bring donations up to Room 236 – Mr. Wirsbinski’s classroom).
“Be the change you want to see”… in our community.

Emergency Nutritional Benefits
Families in our district who qualify for free or reduced-price meals are now eligible for additional emergency nutritional benefits offered from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
If you have already qualified for free or reduced-price meals earlier this school year, you don’t need to do anything because your family will automatically receive these new benefits.
However, if your family income has been affected by the pandemic and you have not completed an Application for Education Benefits (free or reduced-price meal application) for this school year, please complete and submit your application by Feb. 28, 2021.
These benefits are provided by Federal “Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer” funds (P-EBT) and will be provided to any family who qualifies for free and reduced-price meals this school year. These additional benefits will be retroactive to September 2020. We urge families to apply right away.
Families who qualify will receive separate electronic grocery cards for each student in the family. The cards may include funds (approximately $6.82/day) for each day your student was in distance learning during the school year. Cards will be mailed from the State of Minnesota in late March 2021.

Please remember that we only have 450 parking permits available for students during the Spring Trimester. When completing the application please indicate which cohort (A or B) you will be attending this spring. Those students in cohort C do not need to purchase a parking permit. Parking permits are awarded on a first come first serve basis. Sophomores are not eligible for parking permits.
Please know that Fall Trimester permits received partial refunds to the card used to purchase once we went to Distance Learning in November and are not valid as we go into Spring Trimester.
