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.
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.
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.
Students can bring money to the cafeteria to deposit money to their food account or parents can pay online. First thing in the morning before school begins is the best time to bring money to the cafeteria. Money that is brought before 9:30 can be used for the day’s lunch food.
OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.
