OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096 When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

ID CARDS Each student must wear a clearly visible student photo identification card on a break-away lanyard each day at Edgewood Middle School. Replacements will cost $4.00 for an ID and $1.00 for a lanyard. Unpaid ID’s will result in school consequences. All middle and high school students will be issued ID badges. Students are not to deface the card.  Unusable cards need to be replaced at the student's expense immediately. The identification badge is to be attached to a lanyard and worn around the student’s neck at all times. ID badges will also be used in the library for checking out materials. Students who lose or deface their ID badges will be subject to school discipline such as eating lunch last since cafeteria staff will have to enter names manually. WCS Parent-Student Handbook pg 37.

EMS DRESS CODE PROCEDURES Edgewood will permit holes in the jeans that are fingertip length and below. All tank tops and shirts must have shoulder coverage that is ID width.  Under garments should not be visible. No midriff shirts showing any skin.  Students wearing leggings must wear a long enough shirt that covers their front and back side to be fingertip length. Skirts and shorts are to be fingertip length.

Students who violate the foregoing rules will not be admitted to class and should be sent to the front office. This will be addressed by teachers and the administrative staff.  These rules are in place so that we are demonstrating modesty as well as keeping the focus on the academic success for all students. Anything that is distracting to the educational environment is not appropriate attire for Edgewood Middle School.  Please consider how it looks through the eyes of a middle school student and would it be distracting to their learning.

If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.  

Attendance is a critical factor that significantly affects student learning.  Students who are not in school miss out on important instruction. If possible, we would like students to be in school every day.  However, we do know that illnesses, emergencies and unexpected events can result in a student being absent. Parents have seven parent call in days each semester.  Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.  

IPAD POLICY Student iPads are the property of WCS. Inappropriate use of a school device can result in the loss of device privileges. Students must also have their iPad at school and fully charged at the start of every day. Failure to come to school prepared may result in consequences. Gaming resulting in a disruption of learning will be an automatic removal of ALL non-school issued gaming apps.

MESSAGES Phone calls and messages to students should be limited to emergencies only and any message or transportation issues received after 2:00p to the office may not be communicated with the student due to time constraints. 

EMS DRESS CODE PROCEDURES Edgewood will permit holes in the jeans that are fingertip length and below. All tank tops and shirts must have shoulder coverage that is ID width.  Under garments should not be visible. No midriff shirts showing any skin.  Students wearing leggings must wear a long enough shirt that covers their front and back side to be fingertip length. Skirts and shorts are to be fingertip length.

This will be addressed by teachers and the administrative staff.  These rules are in place so that we are demonstrating modesty as well as keeping the focus on the academic success for all students.

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096 When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

APPOINTMENTS:  Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day.  We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.

If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.  

Attendance is a critical factor that significantly affects student learning.  Students who are not in school miss out on important instruction. If possible, we would like students to be in school every day.  However, we do know that illnesses, emergencies and unexpected events can result in a student being absent. Parents have seven parent call in days each semester.  Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.  

IPAD POLICY Student iPads are the property of WCS. Inappropriate use of a school device can result in the loss of device privileges. Students must also have their iPad at school and fully charged at the start of every day. Failure to come to school prepared may result in consequences.

Students who violate the foregoing rules will not be admitted to class and should be sent to the front office. This will be addressed by teachers and the administrative staff.  These rules are in place so that we are demonstrating modesty as well as keeping the focus on the academic success for all students. Anything that is distracting to the educational environment is not appropriate attire for Edgewood Middle School.  Please consider how it looks through the eyes of a middle school student and would it be distracting to their learning.

MS TARDY POLICY Students will be counted tardy to class if they are not in the class by the time the bell to start class rings. Consequences for being tardy to class are as follows: 1st Tardy=Warning, 2nd Tardy=Lunch Detention, 3rd Tardy=2nd Lunch Detention, 4th Tardy=After School Detention, 5th Tardy=Friday School 

EMS CELL PHONE POLICY

If a student needs to contact their parent, he or she is to receive permission from an administrator, nurse or their teacher to call on a school phone.

Students are not to use electronic devices during the school day with the exception of iPads and school computers.  We continue to enforce the rule that phones must be turned off and remain off until the dismissal bell. We also are now adding the expectations that Apple Watches etc. not be used for texting or other non school purposes during the school day.  Students who are using their watches for non-educational purposes will receive an office referral.

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096 When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

APPOINTMENTS:  Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day.  We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.  

Attendance is a critical factor that significantly affects student learning.  Students who are not in school miss out on important instruction. If possible, we would like students to be in school every day.  However, we do know that illnesses, emergencies and unexpected events can result in a student being absent. Parents have seven parent call in days each semester.  Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.  

OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.

APPOINTMENTS:  Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day.  We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.  

ELEARNING: All eLearning days are 7 period day schedules. If we miss a Wednesday - eLearning would be 7 periods and odd block would move to Friday. If we miss a Thursday, elearning would be 7 periods and even block would be Friday.  If we miss both Wednesday Thursday - we will all be rested for Friday and Friday would be 7 periods. 

Attendance is a critical factor that significantly affects student learning.  Students who are not in school miss out on important instruction. If possible, we would like students to be in school every day.  However, we do know that illnesses, emergencies and unexpected events can result in a student being absent. Parents have seven parent call in days each semester.  Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.  

Academic eligibility for athletes:  If your son/daughter is participating in sports, be sure you know the athletic policy (posted on the Edgewood website) regarding eligibility and grades.  We will be checking grades every week and this can impact an athlete's eligibility to participate, practice and play.

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096 When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.  

Academic eligibility for athletes:  If your son/daughter is participating in sports, be sure you know the athletic policy (posted on the Edgewood website) regarding eligibility and grades.  We will be checking grades every week and this can impact an athlete's eligibility to participate, practice and play. 

IPAD POLICY Student iPads are the property of WCS. Inappropriate use of a school device can result in the loss of device privileges. Students must also have their iPad at school and fully charged at the start of every day. Failure to come to school prepared may result in consequences. Gaming resulting in a disruption of learning will be an automatic removal of ALL non-school issued gaming apps.

Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

APPOINTMENTS:  Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day.  We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.  

OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.

Parents have seven parent call in days each semester.  Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.

ID CARDS Each student must wear a clearly visible student photo identification card on a break-away lanyard each day at Edgewood Middle School. Replacements will cost $4.00 for an ID and $1.00 for a lanyard. Unpaid ID’s will result in school consequences. 

APPOINTMENTS Please send a note to school with your student if you are picking your student up early. The student is to bring the note to the office before school begins for a pass to come to the office before your arrival time. After the appointment, please bring in the slip from a medical appointment for your student’s files.

EMS DRESS CODE PROCEDURES Edgewood will permit holes in the jeans that are fingertip length and below. All tank tops and shirts must have shoulder coverage that is ID width.  Under garments should not be visible. No midriff shirts showing any skin.  Students wearing leggings must wear a long enough shirt that covers their front and back side. Skirts and shorts are to be fingertip length.

Students who violate the foregoing rules will not be admitted to class and should be sent to the front office. This will be addressed by teachers and the administrative staff.  These rules are in place so that we are demonstrating modesty as well as keeping the focus on the academic success for all students. Anything that is distracting to the educational environment is not appropriate attire for Edgewood Middle School.  Please consider how it looks through the eyes of a middle school student and would it be distracting to their learning.

PHONES

Students are reminded to turn off phones and put them away when entering the building. This includes when you arrive before school and are waiting in the commons. If a student needs to contact their parent, he or she is to receive permission from an administrator, nurse or their teacher to call on a school phone.

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096

When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

APPOINTMENTS:  Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day.  We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.

Come root on the Lady Tigers in today’s Volleyball home meet against Fairfield. The 8th grade plays first with a start time of 5:30p. 

Due to Parent/Teacher Conferences there will be no cross country practice today. 

Game Club is canceled for today.

Tonight’s Parent Teacher Conferences will be held this evening from 3:30-7:00pm in the commons at Edgewood.  

Calling all students interested in helping others, fundraising for good causes and planning Edgewood’s annual Spring Dance.  Edgewood Cares will hold their first meeting after school today from 2:45-3:15 in Mrs. Helser's room.

PARENT  INFORMATION

Progress reports were sent sent home with students yesterday, September 16th.

Parent Teacher Conferences:  We are so excited to be implementing quarterly parent/teacher conferences.  The first conference date is Thursday, September 19 from 3:30 - 7 p.m. in the commons at Edgewood.  You will get your student’s midterm grades and can meet with any and all teachers to check on how your student is doing.  The best part of the timing for these conferences is that you can work with your student to make “mid flight” corrections.  This is especially important for the nine week classes. These conferences should improve communication and help students adjust study habits, preparations for tests and completion of missing assignments before it’s too late. It also is a great way to find out how your son or daughter is behaving and to hopefully get lots of positive comments to reinforce your child’s behaviors and academic efforts.

No midriff shirts showing any skin.  Students wearing leggings must wear a long enough shirt that covers their front and back side. Skirts and shorts are to be fingertip length.

Students who violate the foregoing rules will not be admitted to class and should be sent to the front office. This will be addressed by teachers and the administrative staff.  These rules are in place so that we are demonstrating modesty as well as keeping the focus on the academic success for all students. Anything that is distracting to the educational environment is not appropriate attire for Edgewood Middle School.  Please consider how it looks through the eyes of a middle school student and would it be distracting to their learning.

PHONES  Students are reminded to turn off phones and put them away when entering the building. This includes when you arrive before school and are waiting in the commons. If a student needs to contact their parent, he or she is to receive permission from an administrator, nurse or their teacher to call on a school phone.

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096  When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.

Edgewood Cares will be having their first meeting on Thursday, September 19th from 2:45-3:15 in Mrs. Helser's room. If you have questions, see Mrs. Beer, Mrs. Toumey, or Mrs. Helser.

Fellowship of Christian Students is starting!!  All students are welcome!! If you enjoy fellowship, food, and encouragement, join us!  FCS will begin next week on Tuesday morning at 7 am in Mr. Brumbaugh's Room.

PARENT  INFORMATION

Parent Teacher Conferences:  We are so excited to be implementing quarterly parent/teacher conferences.  The first conference date is Thursday, September 19 from 3:30 - 7 p.m. in the commons at Edgewood.  You will get your student’s midterm grades and can meet with any and all teachers to check on how your student is doing.  The best part of the timing for these conferences is that you can work with your student to make “mid flight” corrections.  This is especially important for the nine week classes. These conferences should improve communication and help students adjust study habits, preparations for tests and completion of missing assignments before it’s too late. It also is a great way to find out how your son or daughter is behaving and to hopefully get lots of positive comments to reinforce your child’s behaviors and academic efforts.

EMS DRESS CODE PROCEDURES Edgewood will permit holes in the jeans that are fingertip length and below. All tank tops and shirts must have shoulder coverage that is ID width.  Under garments should not be visible. No midriff shirts showing any skin.  Students wearing leggings must wear a long enough shirt that covers their front and back side. Skirts and shorts are to be fingertip length. Students who violate the foregoing rules will not be admitted to class and should be sent to the front office. This will be addressed by teachers and the administrative staff.  These rules are in place so that we are demonstrating modesty as well as keeping the focus on the academic success for all students. Anything that is distracting to the educational environment is not appropriate attire for Edgewood Middle School.  Please consider how it looks through the eyes of a middle school student and would it be distracting to their learning.

PHONES Students are reminded to turn off phones and put them away when entering the building. This includes when you arrive before school and are waiting in the commons. If a student needs to contact their parent, he or she is to receive permission from an administrator, nurse or their teacher to call on a school phone.

REPORTING AN ABSENCE  Phone 371-5096 When a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian must contact the school by 9:00 a.m. on the day of each absence. If the parent does not contact the school within 24 hours of the absence, the absence is considered unexcused or truant. Unexcused absences or truancies can result in the student being assigned to a Friday School. Students are also reminded that they are allowed only seven days of absence during each semester. Students who exceed the limit of absences run the risk of not earning credit for the classes they miss. A parent letter for upcoming vacations is requested about a week in advance if possible.

ELEARNING~ All eLearning days are 7 period day schedules. If we miss a Wednesday - eLearning would be 7 periods and odd block would move to Friday. If we miss a Thursday, elearning would be 7 periods and even block would be Friday.  If we miss both Wednesday Thursday - we will all be rested for Friday and Friday would be 7 periods.
