• Elyria High: “I's A Great Day To Be A Pioneer!

    August 8, 2016

    Dear Elyria Pioneer Student/ Parent:
    It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year at Elyria High School. I hope you areas excited for the start of a new school year as I am. The building looks absolutely amazing, and I’m looking forward to the energy and enthusiasm you and the staff will bring our classrooms and hallways.
    Our freshmen and new student orientation will take place on Monday, August 15, 2016, from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM. All incoming freshmen and new students to Elyria High School should report to the main gymnasium by 8:00 AM. The EHS Link Crew will conduct this orientation program within small organized groups. Our parents are invited to attend an informational meeting with counselors and administrators in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) from 8:00 AM to 8:45 AM.
    Every student is receiving this packet to ensure a successful start to the 2016-2017 school year at Elyria High School. I am asking you to review the packet materials with your parent to become familiar with the procedures at EHS. The packet contains general information and guidelines, as well as several important forms. A few areas have been highlighted for you on the reverse side.
    I look forward to seeing you on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 17th. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Don’t forget to check out our school website which is continually updated throughout the school year and currently provides electronic access to the student packet forms and information. Enjoy the last couple weeks of your summer break and remember to follow us on Twitter @ElyriaHigh.
    It’s a great day to be a PIONEER,


    Timothy Brown
