Elmira High School



Listed below are some important updates for athletes:

1. Per Governor Kate Brown’s new mandate that masks must be worn in public indoor places beginning July 1st, athletes must bring a mask to wear indoors at all times unless participating in physically exerting activities.  Masks are not required to be medical grade.

2.  No spectators allowed at any of the workouts.

3.  Please make sure and stay home if you do not feel well.

4.  Locker Rooms are closed, please use the outside restrooms near the cafeteria.

Athletes and Parents:

Hello Everyone!  Listed below is the contact information for all of the head coaches of our programs.  If you would like to ask them questions about summer workouts and/or the fall season, please feel free to contact them.  Coaches are not required to organize summer workouts, but if they do offer them, they are not mandatory.  If you would like to participate, please contact the coach to see if they are organizing a workout and if so, date and time.  Athletes and parents are required to print out and sign the Summer Athletic Waiver form (see link below), and turn in to the coach prior to participating.  Locker rooms will be used as restrooms only, so you will need to dress in the clothes that you plan to participate in. Please know that per OSAA/OHA/CDC guidelines, athletes will have their temperatures checked and a small screening process will take place prior to participation.  It is encouraged that athletes bring their own water and hand sanitizer.  Hand sanitizer and other methods of disinfecting equipment will be available, but coaches will not be providing water and drinking fountains are closed.  Along with hand sanitizer, coaches will have cleaner to wipe off equipment and will make sure athletes maintain appropriate social distancing at all times.

Assuming Fall Sports will be allowed to take place due to the continuing COVID -19 pandemic, Family ID will open for Fall Sports registration August 6th and from 5:30-7:00 pm the school will be open for parents/athletes to pay fees and turn in supplemental paperwork that day.  Please note, with registration, you will be asked to complete the Athletic Waiver form a second time even if you completed it for participation in summer activities.  As of right now, Fall Athletics are still scheduled to begin practice August 17th.  If something changes information will be posted.

Take care and have a good summer!

Hello Recently Graduated Seniors (Class of 2020) and Rising Seniors (Class of 2021),

While you may be stuck at home during summer 2020, use that extra time to get a jump start on your education! If you’ve just graduated from high school, will graduate in 2021, or passed your reasoning through language arts or math GED tests, you can take a tuition-free summer class at Lane! Whether you’re interested in taking a credit class for fun or a class that will get you one step closer to your college degree, Lane will help you take that next step with one tuition-free class this summer. For a 4-credit course, that’s a $480 savings!

Apply to Lane for summer term entry by Monday, June 22nd 2:00pm
Complete all admissions steps and register by Friday, June 26th 2:00pm

Students may begin returning books, Chromebooks, music folder, instruments and other items beginning on Wednesday, June 10th and continuing through Friday, June 12th.  The office and front lobby will be open all three days from 8:00 AM until 2:30 PM.

Teachers will hold Google Meetings with students one final time on Monday, June 8th and Tuesday, June 9th, but will not be assigning any new work the final week of school and all assignments are due on Friday, June 12th.  Final grades will be completed by Friday, June 19th.

We hope you all have fantastic summer and we are very proud of you for persevering through this extraordinary time.

Graduation 2020 is Friday, June 5th at 7:00 PM.  Due to the unique circumstances we must limit the number of guests and ask most people to remain in their car throughout the ceremony.  In order to help make this night more accessible we are offering multiple platforms to tune in.  Graduation will be broadcast on our local radio station KOCF 92.7 FM.  You can stream the broadcast here if you can’t get radio reception:  KOCF Live Stream

We will also stream the video of the ceremony on Youtube Live.  You can access the stream at the following link:  Youtube Live Stream

We hope that by offering these options you can still experience graduation even if you can’t attend.

Please feel free to call the high school at 541-935-8200 if you have any questions.

Elmira High School is pleased to present our annual Awards Night to you beginning at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 2nd.  We want to thank Mr. James Monegan for his hard work on the video and Mrs. Lorie Haffner for creating the slideshow.  Congratulations to all of our award winners.  All awards will be mailed home to recipients over the summer.

2020 EHS Virtual Awards Night Presentation

This is just a friendly reminder that graduation is still scheduled on Friday, June 5th at 7:00 PM.  We are working hard on finalizing our plans for that evening and will get a detailed plan out to seniors and their families next week.

Elmira High School will not be in session on Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day.  This will prompt a change in our distance learning schedule for next week.  Tuesday and Thursday will continue to be Gold Day schedules with periods 5-7 meeting those days.  Wednesday and Friday will be Purple Day schedules with periods 1-4 meeting.  We hope everyone enjoys a restful 3 day weekend.
