Basketball is Back Good morning ECS families. Yesterday MDHHS in conjunction with the MHSAA announced that youth sports in Michigan have been cleared to resume on Monday. At ECS this means that boys/girls JV/varsity basketball will be officially kicking off their seasons. We are expecting that spectators will be limited to two family members per player. As a result all home games will be live streamed on MHSAA TV. They will also be available afterwards on video on demand. In order to view home live streams or recorded games spectators will need a NFHS Network account. To set up an account visit https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/. Once you have set up an account search for Ellsworth to view available games. We will get any information out to parents regarding away contest livestreams as it becomes available.
Ellsworth Community School will be closed today due to weather. There will be no school for in-person or remote students, or staff.
