Registration Dates: 2016-17


The dates for student registration are August 2nd for Seniors, August 3rd for Juniors, August 4th for Sophomores, August 5th for Freshmen with last name A - L, and August 8th for Freshman with last name M - Z.

Make up registration will be on August 9th.  All students need to come to ECHS on the appropriate registration date to get their books, ID cards, and provide their data confirmation sheet.  Every student must also bring two current proofs of their address.

Students who do not come to one of the registration days will have their class schedule deleted. They will still be on the list of students planning to attend ECHS for the 2016-2017 school year, but the classes they requested will not be held for them. This could result in a student not being able to enroll in a specific class if that class is already full.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 760-901-8000.
