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 are expected to come to ETHS for Orientation Chromebook and material pick up. Please plan carefully as ETHS will strictly follow the assigned times to mitigate the health risks to all students and staff on campus each scheduled day.
