EPHS Student Handbook

Purpose of the Handbook

This handbook supports our school in maintaining a safe, respectful, and productive learning environment for all students. This includes developing clear expectations, teaching social-emotional competencies and fostering positive relationships among all members of the school community. The greatest level of individual success is achieved through shared ownership by the students, families, schools, and the community. Please use this handbook as a reference for the student’s time as an EPHS student. This is not meant to be all-inclusive; not every circumstance or event can be anticipated. If there are any questions, please see a school staff member.
