    COVID-19 Updates
     

     

    Families can find the latest COVID-19 information and updates from the district here. As we have since the onset of the pandemic, Erie’s Public Schools will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including guidance regarding masking. 

    Our complete Health & Safety Plan is available here. The plan will be updated as necessary if and when new guidance becomes available.

     

     Dress Code
     

    Erie's Public Schools will continue its current dress code policy for the 2022-23 school year. Uniforms are not required.

    Students should not:

    • Wear clothes that are revealing or suggestive.
    • Wear clothing, jewelry, and other accessories that promote, encourage, or depict any form of drugs (including alcohol), obscene, lewd or vulgar language or action, or promote any illegal activity.
    • Wear clothing which could potentially cause harm to another person, damage to property, or create an unsafe environment.
    • Wear shorts and skirts with hems shorter than two inches above the knee.
    • Pants must be secured around the waist. Pants may not be “distressed” (e.g. have rips or holes).

    The complete dress code can be found in the Student Handbook & Code of Conduct and Family Information Guide once published.

    School Information and Enrollment 
     
    Click here to view a list of our 16 public schools and links to their individual pages. Please note that some school pages are under construction as they update, and we ask that you call your child's school for any specific questions you may have regarding information that may not be listed on their websites. 
     
    If you are new to Erie's Public Schools and need to enroll your student, we strongly encourage you to do so prior to the first day of school to avoid any unnecessary delays for your student. All information needed to enroll and/or transfer is available on our Child Accounting page or by calling 814-874-6150. 
     
     
    Families can use interactive maps to input their address and determine where it falls in the school boundaries (click on the photos below). Students who live very close to the boundary line between two schools should call the Child Accounting Office at 814-874-6150 to confirm their placement.
