Remote Learning Announcement from Dr. Walker- March 21, 2020

Hi ERMS students and parents, 

I sure do miss seeing your smiles! I have some important information to share with you today. 

First, let me say thank you again for all you have done in the recent days to help in this transition, thanks for all the positive feedback you have given on social media and through personal communication to our teachers and staff.

ERMS teachers have been communicating via Canvas and they are working hard to provide feedback on assignments and answer any questions you may have. Students can look for messages in Canvas by locating the mail icon on the left side. When you enter the Canvas course by subject, office hours and information regarding ways to communicate with your teachers will be posted soon. Our staff will offer conferencing and virtual meetings via Zoom. Please make sure you are checking Canvas, Facebook, and ERMS website for more details about Zoom opportunities. Student directions for logging into Zoom and other platforms will be available next week. Since remote learning is live now teachers are eager to hear from you.

Students, we are expecting you to be checking Canvas to begin working on these assignments and communicating with your teachers as questions arise.  Any student who is inactive for several days and has not checked in with their teachers will receive contact from our administration team, school social worker or resource officer to make sure things are going okay. We also want to see what you need and help you get caught up on assignments. If you need tech support, please email or call 828-288-2234. You can also find more information about WiFi connections across the county by visiting and clicking on the Remote Learning tab. 

Thank you to those who have stopped by ERMS to pick up food. Food service pick up including breakfast and lunch will continue at ERMS and is available for any child ages 0-18 from 10am -1pm. Monday-Friday. 

Thank you again for your support and students please know you are loved. Remember you can always reach me by phone at 828-245-3750 or by email at .
