Our Mission Statement: The mission of Elmira High School is to meet state standards through active teaching and learning, and provide all students the academic and social skills to become successful members of our global community.
CONSTRUCTION WILL CAUSE SOME CHANGES TO THE START OF THE YEAR!
The construction taking place at EHS is going well, and on track to be completed ahead of the scheduled completion date of mid-December. However, it will still impact us for the first couple months of the school year. Our current plan is described below. This MAY get adjusted as the school year draws closer. We will attempt to inform parents and students through the district website, use of the phone dialer, as well as the Principal Carpenter Facebook page.
The front entrance (the steps) to the school will be blocked off, and access or exit will not be permitted in this area.
• Students that drive: Students that drive will park in the normal student parking lot, however they will access the school by entering through the main football field gate and walking around the backside (East side) of the gym.
• Office access: Parents that need to access the front office will park in the office staff parking area, which is the South West lot immediately West of the front office. Access to the front office will be from the door that will be labeled with a sign, and identified with 2 orange cones.
• Bus Drop-off and Pick-up: This will be taking place in the back (North) parking lot. All students that ride the bus will be dropped off and picked up in the back lot.
• Parent pick up of students: This will occur as it has before, the only difference being students will be exiting the building and entering the parking area from the main football field entrance.
We thank you for your patience during this difficult transition. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Due to construction, access to the main office is limited. In general, we will be open 8-4 and the best place to park is in the small lot immediately West of the front office area. There is an Orange cone with an “EHS OFFICE” sign that will direct you to the proper door if you need information or to drop off any paperwork with the bookkeeper. Feel free to call if you have questions, the EHS Secretary returns to work on Monday, August 15th. Before then you can reach the bookkeeper at extension 278, the AD at extension 274, or Mr. Carpenter at extension 201. Go Falcons
