Next Friday night, February 10th, EHS will be holding it’s annual Ultimate Falcon competition fundraiser at Firs Bowl on River Road. Visit the link below to see the flyer that has all the information about this event that supports Mid-Lane Cares.
Reminder that there WILL be school held this Friday, January 27th, and there WILL NOT be school next Friday, February 3rd. This is a result of the District pushing back the end of the 1st semester one week due to our 7 missed snow/ice days. Please help spread the word.
The loss of seven school days over the last month has necessitated some changes in our calendar. The first issue that needed to be addressed was pushing back the end of the first semester. At the School Board meeting last night it was recommended, and subsequently approved, to change January 27th from a non-school day to a school day, and to change February 3rd from a school day to a non-school day. This effectively moves the end of our semester to Thursday, February 2nd. Please note this change on your calendars.
The second issue the board addressed was the potential of adding back days. While many options were discussed, including attending school on holidays, eliminating early release Wednesdays, attending during Spring Break, extending the school year, etc….two options were recommended for consideration. The first option simply has the school year being extended by 5 days, with the last school day occurring on Thursday, June 22nd. The second option has the end of the school year being extended by 3 days (ending on June 20th), with the other two days being identified and made up between now and the end of the school year (attending on Presidents Day, the Friday before Memorial weekend, another non-school day, etc)…..The board plans on making a decision at their next meeting on February 6th. Both options considered have us adding back 5 of the 7 days we have missed, and assume no more snow days. If we have more snow days, other adjustments will need to be made.
Our annual “staff activity” shared with our students this morning at the EHS Holiday assembly. Enjoy and have a great break! Go Falcons!
