Should applicants for the 2019 – 2020 freshman class exceed allotted openings, the EMHS Lottery will be held at 6:00pm on Tuesday, March 19, to establish class enrollments and waiting list order.  The lottery drawing for grades 10, 11 and 12 will be held at this time as well.  You need not be present at the lottery drawing to be admitted to EMHS.
