Be Loud, Be Proud, Be a Brahma!
East Bernard High School is known across the state as a powerhouse both in the classroom and on the field of competition. As the sports season enters full swing, a few reminders from the UIL to ensure that our extracurricular programs and fans remain among the state's best!
Excerpts from the UIL Sportsmanship Manual:
1. The field of play is the athletic classroom for student-athletes. Instead of math and science they learn teamwork and group responsibility in addition to dealing with success and overcoming adversity.
2. Your ticket does not entitle you to disrespect or degrade others in any way. Everyone who is a part of high school athletics gives their best effort and that commitment to educational athletics should be celebrated.
3. Understand that the student-athletes you are watching will make mistakes, and no participant should be ridiculed at any time because of their efforts.
4. High school coaches are actually full-time teachers first and coaches second. Anyone who tries to reverse this order is taking the first step to destroying a program.
5. Officials are present to promote the game and the student-athletes involved. They make judgment calls in good faith based on their knowledge and extensive training. Respect their decisions.
6. Finally, you are a guest of the school and should act like one. Winning is an admirable goal of competition, but it is nothing if it comes at the expense of morals, ethics, and common sense.

2018-19 EBHS Updates
All student parking will be in the Pullin Gym parking lot. The parking spots along Fitzgerald St. will be teacher and staff parking with the Naiser lot serving as Visitor's parking for the entire district. The Naiser lot will soon become a construction zone, so Visitor parking will be adjusted when construction begins.
Vaping and Tobacco Violations:
The consequences for Vaping and Tobacco violations have been increased to better align with other illegal products such as alcohol and drug paraphernalia.
Tobacco products, along with other illegal products have no place on our campus and measures are in place to better educate our community. Please see the Parent Resources tab on our web-page to learn more about the vaping epidemic.
Main updates from past years include: no fleece/cotton sweatpants may be worn. Knit, tailored wind-pants are acceptable. Also, skirts, shorts, etc.. must be hemmed, no frayed ends to clothing. Finally, unbuttoned shirts may not be worn as jackets.
