Do you need a student desk for a better virtual learning experience? EPISD will be selling surplus desks for just $3 starting at 7 a.m. on Saturday at the former Alta Vista school site. Desks will be sold until they run out and are limited to five per household.

State law prohibits us from giving the desks away, so the small nominal fee is required. ➡️ https://bit.ly/34uKVPK #IamEPISD #EPISDProud

Sabrina Jeffries Sciulli Kim Gieck Let's go to the Planetarium! Gene Roddenberry Planetarium
Hello! I am interested in taking my daughter to one of the shows but I need to know how long the shows are. She's 2 ¹/² years old. She's well behaved and I think she would love the show but I don't want to push it with anything more then an hour. Thank you.
Omg let’s go!!!! Adam Simms 😭😭😭
What are the days you are all open? And times?
Mathew Duran look let's take the kids
Could you tell me what the theme song in the end of Starry Nights is? It was in Japanese
We've never been to the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium because I've heard you have to stand in line for hours. I see that now you have tickets available online. If we get the online tickets are we let in right away or do we still have to get there hours early and wait in line to be let in?
Hi! Is the planetarium open only for the free shows?
Can you please tell me what your hours of operation are and admission costs?
Are you guys open on Saturdays
