In anticipation of your arrival at Emmaus High School, we invite you and your parents to participate in a special orientation program on Tuesday, August 18, 2015. Students and parents will report to the auditorium first. Then, students will proceed to their assigned homerooms, and parents will remain in the auditorium for an expanded presentation followed by an informal question/answer session. Once in homeroom, students will receive their class schedules and other information from an Emmaus High School Student Hornet Ambassador. Ambassadors will then give students a guided tour of the high school ending in the cafeteria with a club fair. The club fair is designed to expose our incoming freshman to the various extra-curricular opportunities available at Emmaus High School. Parents who are interested in signing up for Home Access Center, which enables parents to see their child’s attendance, discipline, and grades from home, will be able to do so during Orientation Day (remember to bring identification).
In order to ensure that the day runs smoothly, it is extremely important for students and parents to observe the following assigned timeline: students with last names A through L should report to the auditorium beginning at 8:00 a.m. on August 18. Students with last names M through Z should report to the auditorium beginning at 10:30 a.m. on August 18.
We believe that your participation in orientation day and your involvement in activities at the start of the academic year will significantly ease your transition into high school, prepare you for a rigorous academic program, and build a sense of community with your classmates, faculty, and staff.
Although you will have time to walk through Emmaus High School during the orientation day, we would like to extend to you the opportunity to explore the building on your own time. Please feel free to visit with your parent(s)/guardian(s) during the following times:
Wednesday, August 19 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Thursday, August 20 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Friday, August 21 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
An appointment is not required to tour the building during the above days/times. Although the building will be open, we ask that you sign in upon your arrival at the Main Office, located at 500 Macungie Avenue.
