A reminder to all students that the second semester begins on Tuesday, January 17th.
You will not be receiving a paper copy of your 2nd semester schedule.  Instead, you should be sure to check it out through the PowerSchool portal asap.  You can do this by clicking on “My Schedule” from the menu on the left side of the home screen.  Then click on the “Matrix View” Tab which is located above your schedule.  The default is “week view” – which shows this week only.  Beginning January 16th, you will see your 2nd semester classes by default.
If you want to add a course in place of a study hall, check the open class listing which is available on the EHS Counseling webpage, and Schoology message your counselor with the name of the course and the period that you are switching with a study hall.
If you changed your mind and wish to drop a course, we need you to have your parent email your counselor with the requested change.
