Bulldog Info (March 9, 2021)

 

Edmond Memorial Students and Parents:

 

Please read the following information related to a number of upcoming events and activities at Edmond Memorial High School.  Much of this information is either new or updated as a result of recent changes in our school district following the Board of Education’s decision last week to return to 4-day in-person learning starting March 22nd.  

 

  • Congratulations to our Boy’s Basketball team for qualifying for the state tournament this week in the Tulsa metro area!  Our first game takes place at Skiatook High School on Thursday, March 11th at 6:00 pm vs. Broken Arrow.  Fans may purchase tickets at the door for the games on Thursday and Friday in Skiatook. Ticket prices are $7.00 CASH per person / per session for K-adult.  Only OSSAA Coaches’ Passes will be honored.   On Saturday, fans may purchase tickets in Tulsa at the Mabee Center (ORU) either in-person at the door or electronically through the Mabee Center (ORU) website: http://www.ossaa.net/docs/2020-21/Basketball/BK_2020-21_ORUTickets.pdf.  Masks will be required for all attendees.     

 

  • Students, faculty, and staff will continue to be required to wear masks during the school day when we transition to 4-day in-person learning starting March 22nd.

 

  • For the remainder of this school year, Juniors and Seniors will both be able to leave campus during lunch.  We do ask that students do not travel more than two in a vehicle if they choose to leave for lunch.  

 

  • Prom is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 24th, 2021 outdoors at the EMHS Stadium from 8:00-11:00 pm.  This will be a traditional prom with a dance floor (under an open-air canopy tent), with professional photos available, and food and drink items.  Attendees will be required to wear masks and follow specific safety protocols, but there will be opportunities for food/drink and photos (in designated areas) where masks can be removed for a brief period of time.  Juniors and Seniors and their parents will receive an email about Prom with specific information at another time.

 

  • Graduation is scheduled to take place on Friday, May 21st, 2021 outdoors at the EMHS Stadium at 7:00 pm.  Reserved tickets will not be required, but we will recommend that only immediate families attend so that there is still room for families to keep a safe distance between groups of attendees.  All in attendance (including graduates) will be required to wear masks.  Seniors and their parents will receive specific information about the event at another time.  

 

  • Enrollment for 2021-2022 continues at EMHS and should end this week (after being delayed two weeks due to winter weather).  If there are any desired changes to enrollment, please notify your counselor before the school year ends.  There is enough current flexibility to make adjustments at this time; however, once summer begins and we activate the new master schedule, that flexibility goes away.  We cannot guarantee a schedule change during the summer or at the beginning of next school year, but we will do our best to work with you.  Please communicate with counselors now if you need to make an adjustment.  

 

  • Summer School opportunities will be made available for high school students who have failed a course during the 2020-21 school year. Session 1 will be June 7 – July 1; and Session 2 will be July 6 – July 29.  Summer School credit recovery courses will be free of charge for EPS students.  For further information, call or email summer school principal, Brandon Kysar @ 726-6802 or brandon.kysar@edmondschools.net

 

  • Virtual Edmond students will remain on virtual learning using APEX following spring break.  With the way classes are scheduled (where you complete 2-3 during a time block instead of all 6-7 at once), there is not a way to allow students to either add or drop virtual learning.
