Wed, 12/18/2019 - 1:27pm

Dear EMMS Families and Community, 

As we look forward to the next school year, we wanted to reach out to you regarding new student and family orientation dates. School orientations are an excellent way to get to know staff and become familiar with your child's new school, learn about school programs, and hear about ways students and families can get involved.

Beyond the orientation in January, there will be additional opportunities throughout the spring for staff to welcome you and your child, gain familiarity and comfort with staff, and build community. We will continue to share those opportunities with you as plans are finalized. You can also visit our school website to find out about our building, staff, and upcoming school events that you could attend such as curricular nights, plays, and concerts this spring.

Please review the orientation date and time below. If you are unsure of the school your child is scheduled to attend, please visit School Locator and follow the instructions or visit HCPSS Connect. If you have questions, please call EMMS Student Services @ 410-313-2844.
