EHS Wellness Resources Website
The EHS Counseling Office is pleased to announce that in collaboration with the EHS School Psychologists, Communities in Schools and other departments within the high school, we have put together the EHS Wellness Resources website. Each month, resources that can be used by anyone at any time, will be updated based on a topic or theme for that month. We encourage students, educators and families to utilize this resource and as always, we encourage students to reach out to their counselor or school psychologist if they are struggling.
Please see this site for COVID-19 Updates from the K-12 School Counseling Department and continue to check the EHS Website, as well as the EPSD website. We also have created a graphic, linked here, that can help to identify signs of struggle and with links to articles as resources for more information and how to help.
The counseling office is pleased to continue to offer the Naviance system to our students and their families. Naviance is the preferred postsecondary planning resource for EHS counselors. We encourage all families to utilize the resources found in Naviance. Students receive an introduction each school year on how to use and navigate Naviance Student. Below is a link to access Emmaus High School’s Naviance Student site. Starting 1/18/2020, students must log in using their eastpennsd.org email address and their EPSD password. Parents must register using a registration code, which can be obtained from your child’s counselor. Once registered, parents are able to input an email address and create a password for future use.
