EHS Structural Racism Video Series

 

We are very pleased to present a series of video lessons on Structural Racism in America, presented by EHS Social Studies teacher, Brian Brown.

Each video looks at specific eras or concepts related to racist policies and actions in our nation’s history. Each video is between 20 and 30 minutes.

As our nation grapples with issues of race and racism in our country, it is our obligation to be as informed as we can be. This series will help you understand where we came from, and how we got to this place.

We begin with the first four videos, and more videos will be added on a regular basis.


    
			

EHS Cancellations Updates

Good morning,

As you know, news about precautionary responses to COVID-19 has been rapidly evolving. A few items I wanted to share with families this morning:

1.The Cheer Team’s State competition scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled. No word on a reschedule date.

2.The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) has postponed the start of the spring sports season to March 30th. Teams are not allowed to hold practices until then. No games can begin until 11 days after practices have begun (including the first day). This means that no games or meets will be held until at least April 10th.

3.The Swim Team banquet scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled.

4.Open gym for boys’ and girls’ basketball has been cancelled.

5.The Equity Steering Committee meeting and the public tour of the African-American history museum scheduled for Wednesday evening have both been cancelled.

We promise we will keep families informed as quickly as we can as this situation unfolds in the coming hours and days.

Finally, we are aware that this constant bombardment of information can be overwhelming for all of us. Many of our students are feeling the stress of so much change in such a short period of time. Our hope is to provide students with only the facts that we know, to help them understand what they can do to protect themselves and their loved ones, and to try to maintain as much normalcy and routine as we can. Thank you for your continued support of this important work we are engaged in together.

Regards,

Bill Evans
