  • Remote to Hybrid Cohort Process

    Many families have asked us about moving from the fully remote cohort to the hybrid cohort. If your student is interested in returning as a hybrid student, please have them reach out to their school counselor to start the process.

  • Multicultural Helpdesk 

    The EHS Multi-Cultural Helpdesk is open for the 20-21 school year! The helpdesk is currently located in the library to start the year but will be meeting some students remotely and throughout the building. The Multicultural Youth Program works with teenagers and young adults from diverse backgrounds, with a focus on working with youth and their families who may self-identify as multicultural or from an immigrant family.

    The goal of the EHS Multi-Cultural Helpdesk is to help students connect to resources, services, and programs in the community, develop leadership and peer mentoring skills, and gain the knowledge, life skills, and encouragement to succeed on their particular paths of education and growth.

    If you would like to make an appointment for yourself or your student to meet with the Multi-Cultural Helpdesk, you can email or contact your school counselor.
