- 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.
We will be checking all EHS students' grades on October 22nd, 2019. Any student who has Fs in two or more classes will have a restriction placed on their iPad. Two Fs is the same limit set for Athletic Eligibility. If students aren't making the grade they are unable to play. The restriction will allow students to only have apps on their school-issued iPad which pertain to education work. Any other entertainment apps on their device won't be available to download because the App Store will not be available any longer. The great news is that only a small percentage of students will be affected. Any parental restrictions put in place by the student's parents will remain in place on the iPad.
As stated at the beginning of the year, we will re-evaluate grades again later in the year and students who have brought their low grades up will have the option to re-enable the App Store.
Using the school issued iPad for strictly educational purposes may curb use of the iPad for entertainment resulting in more work production and better grades.
