FRESHMAN SERVICE DAY: Saturday, September 21st. Save the date! This Service Day integrates new students into the EHS community service ethos. All freshmen are required to participate. Freshmen bond with one another and learn that community service is an integral part of the Episcopal High School identity.
SCHOOL BUILDING HOURS: Usually open until 6:00 p.m. daily.
SCHOOL SWITCHBOARD HOURS: Open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
STUDENT DROP-OFF: Turn off of Fournace Avenue at the entrance nearest the 610 feeder road (Gate 5). Once inside the campus grounds, take an immediate right, and go straight until the parking lot turns to the left. Proceed south toward the parking garage and make a U-turn at the flag pole near Gate 6. Please line up along the arched curb that runs parallel to the Jack T. Trotter Academic & Sciences Building.
ABSENCES AND TARDIES: Must be called in to the Attendance Desk (713-512-3407) by 8:00 a.m. If your child knows he/she will miss more than one day of school (including a partial second day), he/she must complete a Planned Absence Form, which is found at the Attendance Desk. Failure to turn this form in on time will result in a detention upon return.
FOOD PLAN and STUDENT CAFETERIA: Lunches and snacks are served every day and are included in your food service fee. The plan provides snacks after Chapel and daily lunch offerings. A punch card that may be used for breakfast (served 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.) and for cookies (served during break) can be purchased in the School Store. Students can charge snacks and drinks in the School Store to their school accounts.
TUTORIALS: Held for 45 minutes following the last class each day except Wednesday. Your student’s teachers will be available to answer questions and provide additional assistance during this time. Please encourage your son or daughter to take advantage of this valuable EHS benefit.
HONORS CHAPEL: Held each semester in the Benitez Chapel to recognize students' academic honors and other special achievements. The dates are included on the website calendar and in the Parent Packet calendar that will be distributed in July.
CALENDAR: Appears in the Weekly Windows online newsletter, which is emailed to EHS families every Monday morning. You can view the current School Calendar here.
EHS INVITES YOU TO PARTICIPATE: Wonderful experiences await you at EHS: Field Knight, Culture Fest, Homecoming, choir and instrumental concerts, theatre performances, dance concerts, Advent Chapel, sporting events, and much more. Check our calendar and mark the dates. You do not need to have a student in the choir, dance, or theatre programs to enjoy their performances. Many parents attend all events!
