Elmira High School



Practices for Season 2 begin on Monday, February 22nd for boys’ and girls’ soccer, volleyball, and cross country.  Football practice has already begun.  All of these programs are looking for more students to come out and participate, especially girls’ soccer.  Please note that we are not charging any athletic fees this year to participate.  Please consider playing a sport this winter.  It’s a great way to reconnect with friends and will provide an outlet from the stress of school.  Please contact our athletic director Mrs. Wartenbee if you have any questions.

Season 2 for athletics is very nearly here!  In fact, football practice has already begun and we will begin having practice for volleyball (modified practice schedule based on county risk level), boys and girls soccer and cross country on Monday, February 22nd.  Please be on the look out for posts and announcements from the respective coaches from each program about practice times and game schedules.

Please remember that in order to participate in athletics you must be signed up in Family ID and have a current physical on file with the school.  One special announcement that we are excited to share is for this year there will be NO ATHLETIC FEES!  We are hopeful that by waiving the fees it will encourage more students to participate and get involved with EHS athletics.  If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call the front office at 541-935-8200 or to email our athletic director Sarah Wartenbee at swartenbee@fernridge.k12.or.us

We are in the process of determining the best way to deliver Schoology parent codes to our families.  In the mean time if you would like the code now please call the EHS front office and we can provide it for you.  The number is 541-935-8200.  The link below will provide you with instructions on how to sign up for a Schoology parent account.

The Covid-19 numbers in Lane County are beginning to improve and we are making plans to return to in-person instruction on a hybrid A/B schedule.  While those plans are being finalized we do need to know if there are any families that do not plan to return to the building when in-person learning returns.  We asking any family that does NOT plan to return to the building to contact us directly here at the school so that we can make alternative plans for providing content.  Please call us at 541-935-8200 or email at rgardner@fernridge.k12.or.us

We will be transitioning to Schoology for our Learner Management System (LMS) for the second semester.  We are excited to make this change, but also recognize that it will take some time for everyone to get comfortable with the new platform.  The most important thing we can ask of parents is to get signed up for a Schoology account so that you can access grades and keep up with notifications from teachers.  The following link will provide step by step instructions for getting a Schoology account for your student.  Please don’t hesitate to call the school if you have any questions.
