Family Weekend

Fall Family Weekend: October 8-9, 2021

Fall and Spring Family Weekends are designed to give EHS parents and guardians the opportunity to see their students compete and perform; and to meet with faculty members, hear from Grade Deans and outside speakers, and connect with fellow EHS families. Registration and a tentative schedule for the Fall Family Weekend will be shared on this page in late September. In addition, you will have access to all of the information through the EHS Weekly newsletter.

Unless otherwise specified, all times listed are EST.
