2020 Virtual Freshmen Orientation
2020-21 Freshmen Orientation Presentation
2020-2021 Freshmen Orientation Letter
Dear Class of 2024 Students and Parents,
Each year, we look forward to the opportunity to welcome our incoming 9th graders to Emmaus High School in August for Freshman Orientation. This year is no exception, though ongoing restrictions due to the pandemic will require us to modify the format of this event. The informational portion of our orientation will be conducted virtually. Although we will not be able to gather in person, this format will allow students and their families to access this important information from anywhere, at any time – and will allow you to go back and view material more than once if needed. Videos and other relevant information will be launched on our website in the News Section and on our 9th Grade Orientation Page on Monday, August 17th for you to view at your convenience.
We know that a very important part of our orientation is our building tours, during which students are able to walk the building, identify landmarks and see where their classrooms will be located. Tours will start on Monday August 17, 2020 and conclude Thursday August 20, 2020. These in-person, on-site tours will be available and an electronic registration form through Sign-Up Genius will open on August 10, 2020 and will remain open until August 15, 2020 for interested students/parents to sign up. Please be aware that due to social distancing and restrictions in the building, the tours will be limited to the student only to be accompanied by a Hornet Ambassador or older student sibling. If a student needs additional accommodations such as a parent escort please contact Mrs. Wood, 9th Grade Academy Administrative Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org to set this up. Unfortunately, we can not accommodate family groups or younger siblings on the tour at this time. Also, students will only be allowed to sign up for one session, in order to allow all freshmen and transfer students an opportunity to tour the building.
