Pick Up and Drop Off During Parking Lot Construction

posted Aug 16, 2017, 8:01 AM by Christine Shock   [ updated Aug 16, 2017, 8:03 AM ]

We are so excited to announce that construction will begin on our new student parking lot this week on
Thursday, August 17th . The project will take approximately six weeks and will impact traffic flow and
pedestrians. We are implementing the following plan and will need the support and cooperation of our
entire ERA family to keep students safe and to minimize the inconveniences caused by construction:

1. The driveway and sidewalk south of the building to and from Southern Street will be closed for the
duration of the construction. No one may use that driveway or sidewalk to enter or exit ERA. The
construction site will be fenced for safety reasons, and the driveway and sidewalk will be barricaded.

2. All parents/guardians dropping off or picking up students must enter via the driveway from Telluride
Street, circle around, and exit via the same driveway to Telluride Street. For this to work efficiently,
there is no parking or waiting at the curb or in the drive for students. Students are released at 3:11, and
it takes them about 10 minutes to exit the building. Please do not arrive early and expect to park at the
curb. There will be teachers and administrators on duty to help direct traffic flow and keep vehicles
moving. Please support their efforts to keep everyone safe and to keep traffic flowing by following

3. Normally, ERA closes at 3:40; however, during the 6 week construction, we are offering a study hall
for students who wish to remain at school until 5:00 P.M. We hope this will support later pick up and
lessen traffic directly after school. Telluride Street and the front pick up area will be much less crowded
if you are able to wait until a bit later to pick up your child. We will open the concession stand and make
snacks available for purchase by all students. If you can wait until 4:00 or later during this construction
to pick up your child, please do so.

4. We will ask student drivers to use the lane behind the school. There is temporary fill making a ramp
so that they can travel over the curb and proceed at a safe rate of speed down the lane to enter and exit
the student parking lot. Teachers will also be on duty to monitor this area.

5. The Brighton Police will assist on Telluride Street as much as possible and when needed.
Later in the construction process when asphalt is being poured, the construction foreman has suggested
that it would be best and safest for the campus to be closed entirely. When we are aware of the date, I
will let you know, and this day will become an additional Hybrid instruction day. Students will sign in
online and work from home to complete assignments; thus, we will not lose an instructional day and be
able to keep everyone safe.

2017-2018 Yearbook Senior Portrait and Quote

posted May 31, 2016, 10:15 AM by Christine Shock   [ updated Jun 14, 2017, 1:20 PM ]

Class of 2018,

Your Senior Portraits and Senior Quotes are due to the yearbook staff by January 15, 2018. While this
deadline may seem to be far in the future, you may want to schedule your portrait sitting now, to ensure
inclusion in the 2017-2018 yearbook. 

Yearbook prefers portraits to be submitted to in a digital format. 
Photos may be in .jpg, .png or .tif format and must be between 10 Mb and 24 Mb for quality printing.
Most portrait photographers will send a digital copy for inclusion in the yearbook at no extra charge.

If you do not have a digital copy of your senior portrait, please submit a wallet size copy to the
yearbook staff. Yearbook cannot accept photos from Facebook or other social media sites as the images
are too low resolution to print well. Please include on a sticky note on the back your name and a good contact email address to notify you when your picture is ready to be picked up after scanning.

Senior Portrait Requirements

1.   All photos must conform to the ERA dress code standards. Modest off the shoulder styles may be worn.
2.  Photos may contain school appropriate props (umbrellas, beach balls, balloons, etc.) 
     No weapons, including swords, lightsabers, airsoft rifles or paintball rifles may be in your senior portrait.
3.  Pets may be included in your senior portrait
4.  No family members may be included in your senior portrait.
5.  All portraits must be portrait orientation. This means the shortest edge of the picture is horizontal.
     Any portraits that are landscape (longest edge is horizontal) will be cropped by the yearbook staff to 
     fit a portrait orientation.
6.  Traditional photo filtering (Sepia Tones, Black and White) photos are acceptable.
     Photos with heavy filtering or distortions may be returned to the student for a more appropriate picture.
7.  Please no logos, captions, etc. (Nike, Reebok, etc) as these will have to be blurred out to prevent copyright              infringement. 
8.  ERA Yearbook cannot accept any photo taken in a dangerous or hazardous location (railroad tracks,
     abandoned buildings, etc.) due to potential legal liability.

Any questions about your senior portrait please feel to email the yearbook staff at

Senior Quotes:

Senior quotes must be no longer than 20 words or 140 characters. All quotes must be school appropriate and
may not contain any profanity, or inappropriate content. If you have questions about the appropriateness of
your senior quote, please email the yearbook staff at

Computer Recommendation for Incoming Students

posted May 10, 2016, 11:05 AM by Christine Shock   [ updated Jul 5, 2017, 2:56 PM ]

Parents have asked what type of computer they should purchase for students in high school.  It is highly recommended that incoming students purchase Chromebooks, since ERA is a Google Apps for Education School, and Chromebooks work very well in our environment and are very reasonably priced.  

Students may bring other devices such as laptops and tablets, however, iPads and iPods are not recommended as they are problematic with Google Apps for Education and our wireless system.

At this time, students are not allowed to connect cell phones to the ERA network.

Currently, Windows 10s devices are NOT recommended as they do not allow the Chrome Browser to be loaded on the device. If you wish to use a Windows 10s device, you will have to purchase and install Windows 10 Professional on the device.

A recommended Chromebook model is the Asus Chromebook C202, as it is extremely rugged, has a spill resistant keyboard and is very easy to repair if a student should break the screen. It also allows students to edit Microsoft Office documents.

Students will need to complete the BYOT Form online.

And the Acceptable Computer Use Policy form online

Students will also need to install the Securly SSL certificate on their device. The Securly SSL allows students to browse the internet safely and securely.
