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.
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 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 Students may have their cell phone with them but should put it away once they enter 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.
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.
OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.Last modified on
