Late Bus

  • The late bus will run every Tuesday and Thursday. The bus picks up around 3:15pm at door #4. You may only use the late bus for clubs or detention. You must sign up in the main office on the day of the late bus by 10:30am.

Library

  • There is NO EATING in the Library
  • All students coming to the Library must have an Ehall pass to EHS Library or a yellow paper pass.
  • Reminder – students are only allowed to come down during one study hall block per day, students will be sent back if trying to come into the Library during multiple study hall blocks in the same day.
  • This is a reminder that–on M, T, W and F–students may only be in the library during Hornet Homeroom for quick in-and-out visits (claiming an ID, printing a document, or book renewal/return, for examples). HR teacher passes are fine for such purposes. Staying longer requires a pass from a subject teacher and subject work necessitating library support/resources.
  • No students should be visiting during HH on Thursdays.
  • The library houses three permanent HHs every day and often gets a fourth due to coverage needs. We simply do not have the HH space to accommodate students just hoping to “hang out.”
  • The EHS Library area to the immediate right after entering will be a designated quiet-only spot for students, staff members and teachers. Stress-relieving activities such as adult coloring, sticker books, sudoku, etc. remain available; however, in response to patron feedback, gaming items have been removed to allow for booked classes to operate without noise distraction. Additionally, ehall pass requires that our AA be able to hear students as they identify themselves upon arrival and exit. 

Study hall students who wish to socialize should sit elsewhere in the library.

  • Per Mrs. Guarriello, the EHS Library will no longer be available to students after school on Mondays due to faculty meetings being held in the space. The EHS Library continues to be open until 3 PM on Tuesdays through Fridays.

Chromebook / IT Help

The IT department  will hold  Chromebook support for students  during Hornet Homeroom (10:18 – 10:55) and from 2 to 2:30 pm outside the library entrance.

Pet Drive for Peaceable Kingdom

The students from room 308 are hoping to help out animals in the Lehigh Valley by holding a pet drive for Peaceable Kingdom in Whitehall, PA.  The drive will run from Monday, March 13th until April 28, 2023.  Boxes for donations can be found in the main office, the hallway by the cafeteria, the lobby by Mr. Fortier’s office, and the auditorium lobby.  

Peaceable Kingdom is looking for food, treats, and toys for the animals, and cleaning supplies for the facility.  You can find their 2023 wish list on Peaceable Kingdom’s website or the many posters hanging around EHS.  Every little donation can help animals in need.  Thank you for your support!

Lehigh University

Current 10th and 11th Grade Students- Please see the opportunity below!

Lehigh University’s Summer Engineering Institute (SEI) is a program that offers students exposure to STEM activities such as hands-on collaborative projects, classroom discussions, and field trips to regional science and tech businesses and research centers. Some of the topics explored during the program include 3D printing, robotics, nanoscience, earthquake mitigation, bioengineering, environmental remediation, and computer science. 

The in-person program gives students the opportunity to reside for two weeks on Lehigh’s campus working with Lehigh students and faculty.  The virtual program runs Monday through Friday for two weeks and consists of zoom sessions three times daily, 10 am – noon, 2 pm – 4 pm, and 6 pm – 7 pm.  Nominated students should be capable of participating in this two-week program both academically and socially.  Students who apply should be highly interested in engineering and have a higher GPA (ideally 3.5 or above).  Lehigh would also like to see that students who apply are of traditionally underrepresented groups and/or first generation college students (however, this criteria is not mandatory).  If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, please fill out the Interest Form by Friday, March 24th.

SESSION 1: June 25-July 8, 2023 (in-person)
