Good morning parents/guardians,

A big thank you from EMS staff for a great return to in-person learning.  It was awesome to have all our students return to the building - the energy was amazing to see again.  Updates for the week are as follows:

  • Thursday, January 28: 
    • Friday Schedule for students: 8:25am-12:15pm.

We will be using Conference Manager as we did in October.  In order to use Conference Manager, you need a MyCBE / PowerSchool account. Conference Manager will open for bookings on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 @ 8am.
