Efforts are continuing as we prepare to open Emmaus High School to all students and staff on Monday, November 12, 2018. We appreciate your patience and kind words of support over the past week.
As you may know, our main office, auxiliary gym, weight room, and over 40 classroom spaces were impacted by flooding. Due to the hard work of our remediation team and EHS staff, the number of unavailable classrooms has been reduced to 16. We were able to relocate all class periods scheduled to be held in these 16 rooms into other available classrooms throughout the building.
On Monday, students will come to school on a 3 hour delay. Students should report to their bus stops three hours later than normal on Monday ONLY. Students will enter the building through the same entrances they have been accustomed to using (Pine St. and Auditorium/Locker Commons). They will report directly to HOMEROOM, which will begin promptly at 10:23 AM. After Monday, we will resume with a normal schedule for all students.
Students whose homerooms are inaccessible will report to the AUDITORIUM for homeroom. This includes those in homerooms 300 through 315, Room 501, and Rooms 504-510. On Monday, students will follow the following bell schedule:
EHS 3 Hour Delay Bell Schedule
|HR||10:23 – 10:53|
|1||10:58 – 11:07|
|2||11:12 – 11:21|
|3||11:26 – 11:35|
|4||11:40 – 12:10|

|6||12:50 – 1:20|
|7||1:25 – 1:55|

All students will receive a new temporary schedule during homeroom, as even if they do not have a scheduled class in the affected hallways, they may still have classroom changes. Students will also receive instructions from their homeroom teacher regarding how to navigate essential functions of the high school main/attendance office that have been temporarily relocated to other areas of the building. The following are a few changes of which you should be aware:

A call out to students that had lockers in the affected areas went out this week. Information given in that call out is posted on the Emmaus High School Website. Students who need to access the contents of their lockers in the affected areas of the school should report to their grade level office for assistance. Teachers have received a list of students whose lockers were affected and will support them in obtaining replacement instructional materials if needed.
There will be extra student parking in the lower level of Holy Spirit Parking lot for the remainder of the week. Students parking in that lot should be mindful of signs and restrictions. Students are still not permitted to park in designated staff lots.
Late Student Drop-Off and Early Pick-Up
For Parents: Please note that our main office is currently inaccessible, and its functions have been relocated to other areas of the school. Should you come to school for a meeting or to pick up your child, you will park in Lot J (near the Auditorium), buzz in and go through normal screening procedures in the AUDITORIUM LOBBY area. This area of the building is busy, especially at the beginning and end of the day, so please consider that in your plans and leave extra time prior to scheduled appointments.
Students will all return to their regular arrival time and bell schedule on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. We will continue to notify you of repair/renovation progress and other pertinent information. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming students back to Emmaus High School on Monday, November 12th!
