Dear EKHLA Families,

With school right around the corner, we are excited to have all of our students back on campus but aware of the concerns around COVID-19. 

Attached is the EKHLA 2021-2022 School Health Safety Plan. It will take all of us as a school community to keep our students as safe as possible but committing to the measures outlined in this plan as well as being thoughtful of our personal time and activities.

See you all soon,
Kathryn Cohen
