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.
Free Breakfast Wednesdays: free breakfast is provided by the cafeteria on Wednesdays for those students who want to partake.

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.
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.
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.
