Family Email Update 5.12.23

Policy Change for Buses

  • In an effort to increase student safety, the Franklin County Board of Education has approved a change in Policy 6305: Safety and Student Transportation Services for the 2023-24 school year.  Currently, drivers will discharge Pre-K through kindergarten students only when a designated secondary student or parent/guardian is present. Effective July 1, 2023,  drivers will discharge Pre-K through third grade students only when an older sibling, parent/guardian/designee is present. We wanted to make you aware of this change well in advance so that families who are impacted by this change will have time to make any necessary arrangements.

ECHS Student Featured on Tar Heel Teacher

  • ECHS’ senior, Adam Nawar, was recently selected as a guest panelist on Tar Heel Teachers Presents: North Carolina’s Early College Network. Adam did a wonderful job articulating the importance of our school, community, and opportunities uniquely available to students in our program. He was poised, well-spoken, and professional. The video can be found using this link. His and other student panelists’ portion of the interview begins around the 45-minute mark. A big “thanks” to Adam for his willingness to serve and represent ECHS well!
