Virtual Enrichment Support Guide
In an effort to provide supplemental enrichment support for students while schools are closed in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, this guide provides suggestions on the various remote learning opportunities that are available to students and families.  We recognize that this is a challenging and unprecedented time for the EPS community. In the face of this unique circumstance and its demands, we want to support our students and families as much as possible.
