ONGOING ANNOUNCEMENTS


Empower Bus

If your student attends classes at the Empower College and Career Center in the mornings, please be sure to arrive on time. The last bus leaves EJCHS at 7:45 sharp! If you are a car rider and will be arriving late, we ask that you drop your student off at Empower instead of EJCHS as no late buses travel from EJCHS to Empower.  Bus riders arriving on campus on a late bus (after all Empower busses have departed) should remain on the bus and tell their bus drivers they need to be taken to Empower.
