ECSD’s Overarching-Goals during the COVID-19 Pandemic are:
Do everything possible to keep our students and staff safe and healthy and in school
Do everything possible for our kids to play and compete
As we view Homecoming Week Activities through the lens of our overarching pandemic goals, we come to the understanding that modifications will need to be made to many of the Homecoming traditions that we have come to know and love. Members of the Student Council, Cheerleading Squads, and their Sponsors have met to create a fun week of activities while meeting the challenges put forth by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
It is important to realize that all of us need to support the efforts being made by staff and students to protect their seasons and to stay in school.. We ask the community to support the creativeness and resiliency of our staff and students in meeting this challenge.
