Updates for Week Ending May 7

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:


As ETHS continues to prepare for the 2021-22 school year, we are developing ways to help all students transition to full in-person instruction together in their classrooms every school day. We look forward to sharing more information as details become available. 


COVID Pre-screener and Self-certification Updates


Students and staff must continue to self-certify each day they are scheduled to come to the building, through the end of the school year Please note that you no longer need to answer the travel question to self-certify. In addition, the list of symptoms has been simplified and the contact tracing guidelines have been updated, based on current health guidance.


Additional Teen Vaccination & Covid Testing Opportunities 


ETHS is partnering with the Evanston Health and Human Services Department to host a vaccination clinic on the ETHS campus. The clinic will be held outdoors, in Parking Lot 1, on Dodge Avenue, across from the main entrance of the school. Individuals, age 16 and older, can receive their first vaccine dose on Saturday, May 22; the second dose will be scheduled on Saturday, June 12.


As a reminder, 16 and 17 year old students (or guardians on behalf of a 16/17 year old) may complete the Evanston Vaccine contact form. Appointments for anyone age 16 and up can also be made through NorthShore University HealthSystem.


Erie now has COVID-19 vaccine appointments available for anyone age 16 and up. You do not have to be an Erie patient to get the vaccine at an Erie location. Visit for the most up-to-date info about vaccines and appointments.


Students who are registered with the ETHS Health Center are able to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 test. Call (847) 424-7265 or


Hybrid Selection Reminder

Students who chose hybrid in-person instruction have the option to switch back to fully remote at any time. The selection for fully remote instruction should be changed in myETHS. If you choose to switch to fully remote, parents/guardians will be able to view, but not change their selection for the remainder of the school year.
