• EPS Family Handbook

    Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year!

    This online handbook is designed to provide you with everything you need to get ready for a new school year. Here you’ll find links to resources, forms and information. Start with the checklist to be sure you are seeing and doing all of the necessary things to make the first days of school successful -- not stressful! Then please peruse the rest of the links and resources to see What’s New this year and to review information that you may know but would like a refresher on. This Handbook section of the Parent Resources website will be live all year, so check back any time.
