    COVID UPDATE

    As of right now, it seems likely that we remain in Distance Learning for the remainder this school year. There is some talk of possibly having some kind of hybrid school in May, but that is just a hope at this point. Vaccines are being rolled out by the county and school staff will be in Phase 1b, the next group to receive vaccines. Thus far, the school board is not requiring that staff get vaccinations this school year, as it is so unlikely that most students will be able to return. There is no real word yet on when students would be vaccinated. Our ST graduation is now scheduled for all day on Friday, June 4th. We are planning for a drive-through event but will switch to a staggered event in the stadium if COVID restrictions lift.

    While the entire ESUHSD is not administering the PSAT or SAT tests this year, AP testing is going to be administered virtually. If you have not yet ordered tests, you can use this form to order the them at $126.00 each. Checks are made out to ESUHSD and can be dropped at the main office on Snell Avenue in an envelope with the order form inside and the student's name, test title(s), teacher name(s) and period(s) on the outside. Note that students MUST ALSO register for their specific courses on the College Board website (teachers have the join codes) before we can order the test.
