This Life Counts is a suicide awareness and prevention program for tweens, teens, and parents that will be occurring on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 in the Cherry Hill High School East Auditorium. Registration starts at 6:45 PM and the program will begin at 7 PM. Please view this flier for more details.
Cherry Hill High Schools are offering the opportunity to have their teens participate in a mental health check-up called Behavioral Health (BH) Works. BH-Works was developed at CHOP. The program is free, voluntary and confidential.
For most parents, this screening will reassure you that your teen is just experiencing typical "growing pains." For other parents, the screening can help you pinpoint a problem in its early stages, giving you the ability to secure needed help for your teen and reduce the chance that a more significant problem will develop in the future.
I hope you will take advantage of this confidential screening and return the form that was mailed to your home. The letter and consent form is also available on the Guidance eBoard under the forms tab.The Deadline for consent forms is Friday, February 22nd .
New this year, Student Report Cards are available electronically in the Genesis Parent Portal for all Middle School and High School students. Please read this important letter detailing how to access them.

The excitement is building as we approach the first day of school on September 5, 2018. On the first day of school, students will meet with all of their teachers as we utilize a special "First Day" schedule. Schedules have been placed in the mail today (August 14, 2018) and are immediately available to view on Genesis. Students in grade 9 will have their homeroom and lunch assigned on their schedules. Students in grades 10 – 12 will notice that their homeroom/lunch are unassigned. Instead, during first period class students in grades 10-12 will receive instructions for selecting the lunch and homeroom that they would like to attend. Students will have the opportunity to make this selection on a daily basis. The initial structure enjoyed by students in grade 9 for the assignment of homeroom and lunch will later mimic that of their schoolmates after a transitional period to allow students to acclimate to their new school. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to another great year at East.
Fall sports registration begins June 15, 2018!

Registration for Winter Sports is open from September 29th to November 3rd!
Welcome to High School East! We hope that playing athletics is a worthwhile experience for your child.
Please know that our sports program does not coordinate with summer camp schedules; vacation plans; etc.
As set by the state:
- Fall Sports typically begin on or around August 15th (8/14 for Fall 2017 except for football which will be an earlier start), and last until late October or later for some sports.
- Winter sports typically begin the Monday after Thanksgiving (bowling and swimming begin mid-November) and run until mid-late February. Winter sports also have practices and games during the December break!
- Spring sports usually begin the first Friday in March, and the season lasts until late May. Again, the teams typically do have practices and games during Spring Break!
This information is provided for planning purposes. Please contact our office, or the specific coach if you have questions about scheduling.
If paperwork is submitted after the deadline, the athlete may not be cleared before the first practice. Waiting until the day before or day of the start of the season will definitely mean that the athlete will not be cleared in time for the first practice!
Fall Registration for the 2017 season is now Closed.

In an effort to enhance our communication and to ensure for the safety and well-being of all pupils, please be advised that both High Schools will be implementing the use of an automated attendance notification system as of January 17, 2017. The guardian contacts reflected in the Genesis Student Information System Parent Portal system will receive a telephone call in the event of an absence.
It is important to ensure that the contact information listed in the Genesis Parent Portal is up to date. Please take a moment to log into your Genesis Parent Portal account to verify the accuracy of your contact information. The guardian phone numbers listed on your account will be used to notify you when your child is recorded as absent from school. Please contact the school immediately should your contact information contain any incorrect information.
We thank you in advance for your help and cooperation as we implement this new procedure. Parents/Guardians should continue to verify student absences by notifying the school via voicemail, email, or letter. Please feel free to contact the school's attendance office with additional questions and/or concerns.
