Community Service

COMMUNITY SERVICE UPDATE (WITH SCHOOL CLOSURE):

Community Service hours are waived for all students for the 2019-2020 and the 2020-2021 school years.

In addition, in order to keep things equitable for all students, no community service hours from the 2020-2021 school year will be accepted. 

Due to COVID-19, students are encouraged not to be out in the community unnecessarily.

Next year, after we have a better idea about where we are with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as, safety practices/recommendations, a decision will be made about whether or not to excuse the hours for 2021-2022.

Requirements for the cords will be adjusted each year, until we can get back to normal.

VP Lewis-Jones will send out more information about the requirements at the beginning of next school year.

Seniors who have submitted hours and qualify for a cord will be contacted separately in the Spring. (Please note that the deadline to submit hours has passed and are no longer accepted.)

Contact Ms. Lewis-Jones at nlewis@egusd.net if you have any questions. Stay safe and healthy!
