Welcome Back!

July 23, 2018


To the parents of all incoming and returning students,


The administration, faculty, and staff of Ellender Memorial High School would like to welcome our returning students, as well as those who are joining us for the first time.


A brand new school year is quickly approaching and our vision statement continues to be: EMHS; Where education and relationsips are fostered by all stakeholders to lead students to graduate who are prepared for success in college and/or career experience.  We embark on this journey pledging to all stakeholders a year of engaging, meaningful, rigorous work in classrooms, special events on our campus, and a plethora of extracurricular clubs and activities.


The first day of school is on Monday, August 6th for all students. We will have Freshmen Orientation on Thursday, July 26th from 3:00 – 5:00 for all new students.  This will begin in the auditorium.  During this time, class schedules will be given and entrance counseling will take place. More detailed information will be shared at Open House on Wednesday, August 22nd at 6:00 PM. All sophomore, junior, and senior schedules will be mailed out Friday, July 20th.  During the first week of school, I will conduct another orientation with all grade levels regarding school procedures and expectations so that all students have a smooth transition.  School supply lists will be given by individual teachers during the first week of school.  Students should come prepared with paper and pen/pencil on the first few days.


All Ellender Memorial High School students are expected to wear khaki pants, skirts or shorts with a white, navy blue, or royal blue collared shirt. If you are unsure, please visit www.tpsd.org for Terrebonne Parish’s uniform policy. Our school hours are 7:15 – 2:15. We begin taking in students at 7:00 a.m. 


I invite you to continue looking for updates on our websites, as it is being updated weekly.  I encourage you to also check out our school’s Facebook page. You may locate it by typing “Ellender Memorial High School” in the search bar. There you will find more information and announcements. If you have any questions; please call the school at (985) 868-7903. I look forward to working with each and every one of you to make this a successful school year. Thanks for your cooperation and support……. welcome back!



Educationally Yours,

Darrell Dillard,
