Re: End-of-Year Procedures

We hope you and your families have maintained your health and stayed positive throughout this Remote Learning experience. As the school year winds down next week, we need to organize an end-of-year student materials drop-off and pick-up at EPHS.

With safety for our students, staff and families being of the highest priority, we must follow very specific guidelines to ensure all materials are safely dropped off and picked up in an orderly manner. We ask that all families arrive by car during your designated time, remain in your cars during the entire process, and follow the specific travel plan for all drop-off and pick-up locations.

Below, you will find the dates/times as well as procedures for materials drop-off/pick-up days. This event is scheduled by class.
