Hours and schedule: Our ELA school hours next year will be 8:20 – 3:25, with optional after school help until 3:50.
After school help: We do ask that students either stay until 3:50 in a classroom, or leave campus at 3:25. Other students at TEC are still in class until 3:50, so we need to be respectful and keep the academic atmosphere going. Also, teachers will be in classrooms helping students, so there isn’t supervision outside or in the halls during this time. We ask for your help in making sure students aren’t just hanging out on campus between 3:25 and 3:50.
Back to school night will be on Tuesday, August 9. New Families meet from 5:30 – 6:30 Returning Families meet from 6:30 – 7:00 This will be a chance to hear about what to expect at ELA for new families, and some important updates for returning families. If you’re planning on attending this fall but can’t make the meeting, please let us know. We understand that you have other commitments, but we worry if we don’t see you there!
All Student Check-In Day - August 10 drop in from 8:00 am – 6:30 pm. Students Grades 6-12 attending EHS, EMS and ELA are included, and parents and students are strongly encouraged to attend.
We will take our annual overnight trip to Estes Park on August 31 and September 1. We strongly encourage ALL students to go, as this trip strengthens our community with team building and problem solving activities that impact our students all year long. If your student will require medications on this trip, please be sure to get your medication forms filled in by your doctor prior to August 19, 2016. These forms are available on our website and at Back to School Night, with permission slips and waivers. We will also need some chaperones if you’d like to accompany us. We’ll provide more information about the trip at Back to School night as well.
