ESM Remote Learning

On Monday, March 16th, ESM moved to home-based remote learning in response to the threat of the COVID-19 virus.  Then, after Governor Holcomb’s executive order, we learned that we will be finishing the year with remote learning.  In this time we commit to work with students to continue learning, maintain relationships, and reflect Christ in all that we do.

Following the guidelines in our Continuous Learning Plan, ESM will use this page to communicate information and provide direction for your child’s remote learning schedule.
