Quality to the Core

Dear East High Panthers,

The summer is coming to a close and the 2015-16 school year is right around the corner. I am truly excited about the upcoming school year and all that it has to offer for the students of Central Dauphin East High School. I am excited to see you in the hallways, in the classroom, on the sports fields, in the marching band, working on art projects and preparing for music programs. Please read the following information about the opening day of school.

First Day of School

Our first day of school is Monday, August 31, 2015. Students will report to their homeroom by 7:45am. Students will receive Code of Conduct information, an assigned locker, an updated schedule, and other miscellaneous information. During the first week of school, students will have an assembly with the administration to discuss our expectations for the school year. 

Student Schedules

Schedules will be mailed out on August 10. Please review your schedules, if you have questions, you can contact our Guidance Department at 541-1662 ext. 370 or ext. 371. Students will be able to make changes to their schedule for the first 10 school days.

Schedule changes will only be honored for the following reasons:

·        A student has been incorrectly placed in a course.

·        A student needs to add a course because they do not have 6.5 credits selected for the upcoming year.

·        A student wishes to eliminate a study hall.

·        A student has decided to change a course they selected during course selection

Freshman and New Student Orientation

There will be an orientation program for all new students and incoming Freshman to East High. The orientation program will be on Thursday, August 27 at 7pm in the Auditorium.

Back to School Night (Tuesday, September 24, 2015 at 6pm)

Our Back to School Night program will be held on Thursday, September 24 beginning at 6pm. Our teachers and administrative staff are eager to meet you. The program will begin in the auditorium at 6pm with the introduction of our administrative and guidance staff.


See You Soon,
