The Elizabethtown Area High School’s annual May Day is a day for students to take their learning outside of the classroom. On May Day, students serve the community and foster school spirit through a full day celebration of the school year coming to an end. It will be held on May 13 this year, and students will participate in volunteer hours in the morning, and fun activities in the afternoon. No Keystone testing or AP Exams will be held on this day.

At the beginning of the second semester, several classrooms in the Elizabethtown Area High School began using a new system called e-hallpass. According Robert Crick, high school assistant principal, the “objective of e-hallpass is to provide a system by which students and staff can effectively utilize ‘passes’ in a 1:1 (Chromebook) learning environment.” Currently, the system is only being piloted, but after the 1:1 Personalized Learning Initiative is implemented next year, and every high school student has a Chromebook, e-hallpass will be incorporated throughout the entire high school. The middle school is currently using the e-hallpass system.
