Parent Teacher Conferences are today, October 15, and next Thursday, October 23. Conference times have changed a little bit. They now run from 4:00 - 7:30. Today is supposed to be for last names A-L and next week is M-Z, but if you can't make your designated evening, please feel free to come on the other evening! It doesn't matter to us when you come; we just want to see you and talk about your student(s)!
Monday, October 6th, will be the last opportunity for students to get their pictures taken. If a student does not yet have and id, s/he must get their picture taken whether purchasing photos or not. Students need an id to use the library and other tutoring facilities. It is expected that students carry an id at all times.

Cost is $20 – cash or check made payable to EHS.
