Ephrata High School welcomes Austin Parker as its new varsity boys wrestling coach. Parker will lead the Tigers in their season opener on Thursday, Dec. 1, at home.
Plows are on our vehicles and Ephrata School District maintenance crews are getting ready for winter weather. It takes an army of employees to battle the snow and ice to make schools safe on winter days. Maintenance crews get to work at 4:30 a.m. to start clearing sidewalks, parking lots, bus loops and other high traffic areas. They're helped by our day custodians to clear paths for students and staff. We appreciate all their efforts to make school run safely.

Greetings and good morning.
Following Tuesday's elections, I wanted to take a moment to pause and say “THANK YOU!” As of the writing of this message, our 2 ballot propositions are fairing as follows:
- Capital Projects - PASSING with a 55.68%
- Buses - PASSING 59.54%
- As a reminder: Levies require a simple majority (50%) to pass. Bonds require a supermajority (60%) to pass.
Two new school district levies will be up for voter consideration on the November ballot. If approved, these measures will purchase four new yellow school buses and provide capital needed to address facility and infrastructure improvements throughout the district.
