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.
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.
