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.
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
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.
