FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
For New Students
WHAT DO I DO AFTER I'M ACCEPTED?
Your final acceptance will be determined after EHOVE reviews all your records at the end of the school year, so maintain good grades, attendance and behavior. Also, make sure you attend Summer Registration in July. That's where you'll order Pride shirts, turn in forms, talk to counselors, pay fees, and pretty much everything else to get ready for the school year. Look for the event info in the mail.
WHAT DO I WEAR ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL?
If you have received your PRIDE attire (shirts and hoodie) for the new school year, you should wear your PRIDE attire on the first day as well as every day during the school year. If you have not received your program clothing, it will be issued to you as soon as possible. Until that time, please wear school-appropriate clothing.
WHAT DO I BRING?
Bring your schedule and typical school supplies (pencils, pens, paper, backpacks, a great attitude, etc.) on the first day. Don’t bring specialty items like helmets, toolboxes, etc. Your lab instructor will inform you what to bring and when.
WHERE DO I GO WHEN I GET TO EHOVE?
On the first day, go directly to the Center in the Science & Technology Building where you will be welcomed by EHOVE staff and Ambassadors. On all other days, students arriving before 8:10 AM should report directly to the cafeteria in A Building. At 8:10 AM, students are dismissed to go to their first block class.
WHAT WILL I DO ON THE FIRST DAY?
You will connect with your teachers and classmates and then go to your lab as a group. You’ll take a tour, hear some important pointers, get an ice cream coupon, watch a video, and get a chance to ask questions. Students with afternoon labs will be taken to their academic classes first, but will still do these activities the same day.
HOW DO I PAY FOR LUNCH?
You can pre-pay for lunches at Lunchprepay.com, with cash or check in the cafeteria when you get your lunch, or send a check to EHOVE to the attention of CAFETERIA, with your name on the check. Everyone will use the finger scan at the register to record purchases. When paying in person, try to do it at breakfast since lunch time is busier. Remember: We want everyone to eat breakfast and lunch to provide your body and brain the fuel it needs to operate efficiently. If you qualify for free or reduced lunches, you also qualify for free or reduced breakfast. (Reduced: $.40; Lunch: $3.00)
WHAT IF I NEED TO CHANGE MY SCHEDULE?
For any type of schedule change, please see Mrs. Stombaugh, the Guidance Secretary, in the high school office.
WHAT IF I WANT TO DRIVE TO EHOVE?
You may obtain a form to request a parking pass in the Main Office in A Building. There is no cost and the student parking lot is on the large lot on the east side.
WHAT IF I AM LATE TO SCHOOL?
If your bus is late, see the Attendance Secretary in the Main Office when you arrive. If you drive, sign in at the Welcome Center before you go to class. If it is after 9 AM, go to the Attendance Secretary first, because it will count as a half day absence.
WHAT IF I AM IN BAND, SPORTS OR ANOTHER ACTIVITY AFTER SCHOOL?
Pick up, complete and return an Extracurricular Eligibility Form immediately. You may pick up a form in the Main Office or online at www.EHOVE.net. Have the form signed by your parent, coach/advisor and partner school principal. When the form is completed and returned you may be released at 2:25.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING AT MY PARTNER SCHOOL?
Partner school announcements are made in the morning at EHOVE when they are sent from your school. Also, view them on the televisions located in the cafeteria or on the bulletin boards across from the Main Office .
