- Student Enrollment
It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
On Tuesday, April 11th, all 10th and 11th grade students enrolled in public schools in the State of Colorado are required to take standardized tests. Tenth grade students take the PSAT and Eleventh grade students take the SAT. Our school has spent a considerable amount of time helping students overcome test anxiety that sometimes is associated with these tests by practicing in a low-stakes environment.
School buses will run at the regular time on April 11th to bring 10th and 11th graders to EHS for testing. The school buses will then make a second run to bring all other students to school in time for classes which begin at 11:15am. This means that buses will run 3 1/2 hours after their regularly scheduled time. All students will then be on a schedule with shorter periods for the remainder of that day.
Sophomores and Juniors are encouraged to bring a calculator, a snack (if they wish) and to dress in layers. The gym can be cool for testing and some students find a hoodie to be a good solution. Students should sleep well the night prior to the test and come to school well-fed. It is also very important that students arrive on-time.
Freshmen students will test the following day during normal class times blocks 1 - 3 and 5 - 7. 4th block and 8th block will meet at the regular times.
We appreciate how seriously our students take these exams which have a big impact on college acceptance and scholarship opportunities in the near future.
