On February 7th we will be having a Community Safety Meeting to inform parents of existing and ongoing measures to ensure school safety. We will be informing parents of current laws regarding public and school safety, update the parents on all safety-related practices in our schools, provide them with guidelines on actions they can take at home to increase student/ school safety, and engage in a discussion on safety. This meeting is at 6:30 pm in the EMS Cafetorium.

We would like to congratulate the EMS 6th graders who won the Northern Championship at the Optimist Brain Bowl !!! They now go on to compete at the Brain Bowl Super Bowl on Feb 23 in Castle Rock - Go Tigers!!!!
