Dear Spartan Family,
Happy New Year! As the first semester of the school year ends, EAHS has so much to be proud of and thankful for! We truly hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and we are so excited to welcome our Spartans back to school, Friday, January 6. Please make sure that your child is on time for school, has their computer charged, is wearing an ID, and is dressed in uniform before arriving to school. Remember, jackets/sweatshirts with hoods are not allowed on campus so students should not leave home with that apparel. There will also be a $2/Drachma ID sale before school and at lunch in the library January 9-13. Here a few other reminders:
We continue our dedication to ensuring we have open communication with you regarding all aspects of our campus. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any administrator with a concern. Our goal is to help ensure all stakeholders feel supported and valued.

Student Drop Off and Pick Up:
Please remember that student drop off begins at 7:10 in front of the Freshman Academy and no student should arrive on campus before that time. Students can report to the cafeteria; however, no students are allowed in the Freshman Academy, Media Center classrooms or Mod City classrooms before the entry bell rings at 7:30. We are asking you to help support us in our focus to secure every instructional minute by ensuring students who are dropped off or walk to school each morning arrive to campus on time. We ask that students follow the traffic laws when crossing the street if they walk home. All students should be picked up from school by 3:15.
Schedules and first day of the second semester:
Friday, January 6, students should report to SPEAR, not 1st block, when the entry bell rings. We are beginning a new semester so students will be enrolled in new classes. To get the most accurate schedule, students should check their schedule in PowerSchool. Schedules will not be changed unless there is an emergency schedule change needed. Examples of an emergency schedule change would be a student missing a class, enrolled in a class that he/she has already passed, or missing a required course. Students will be called to guidance to handle those situations after filling out a google form in 1st block. Senior Mentors will be available throughout campus between classes to help guide any students who are unsure of where classes are located. If a student is currently enrolled in class that occurs on another campus, they should report to the Media Center tomorrow.
School Cash Online: Easily pay any fees on line by registering for School Cash Online. Feel free to call 225-391-6100 for more information or assistance. Students may begin paying their class fees online beginning on the first day of class. Money can be added to lunch accounts on My School Bucks. (Southeastern Dual Enrollment tuition is $225 and must be paid by January 21, 2023, or the student will be dropped from the Southeastern Dual Enrollment class.)
If your student is involved in a disturbance/physical altercation on campus, please note they will be suspended, may be arrested and possibly recommended for expulsion. Any students who inappropriately use their technology to record those incidents will be suspended as well. We ask that you help partner with us to encourage students to seek positive conflict resolution with the help of adults when needed. Also, those students who do not report to an assigned Saturday Detention, will serve their detention in In School Suspension.
The spring semester is filled with many activities and events. We will continue to communicate via school messenger as well as our numerous social media sites, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We are looking forward to a grEAt spring semester and to creating a stronger partnership with you to better support your student! Thank you for your continued support and as always, Go Spartans!
