Freshman & Transfer Student Orientation
The first step for newly registered students and their families begins at Orientation when ETHS staff provide an introduction to the high school, and counselors provide an overview of the academic experience.
Families will have the opportunity to walk the student’s schedule, open their locker, and pick up a District-issued Chromebook. Plan to arrive based on your student's last name as outlined below. Please plan carefully as ETHS will strictly follow the assigned times to limit the number of students and staff on campus each scheduled day.
