    ELK RIVER HIGH SCHOOL

    2020-2021

    On behalf of the staff at Elk River High School, I wish to welcome you to the 2020-21 school year. ERHS offers a comprehensive program of academic opportunities and extra/co-curricular and club activities for all students to excel. It is our expectation that all students attain a postsecondary education through challenging courses at ERHS.  It is our goal that all students have a meaningful learning experience while attending our school.  

    The intent of this handbook is to serve more than a list of rules and regulations but to be a guide as you continue your education at ERHS. Complete copies of all school and district policies are located on the school and district websites. The staff at ERHS strives for a safe and orderly learning environment and all students are encouraged to ask questions if they need assistance. We continue to be respectful of all as we expand the power of knowledge. 

    Again, it is the desire of the entire staff that you have an enjoyable, exciting, and rewarding school year. Best wishes as you pursue your dreams.
