Attention to those attending WCHS home football game:  The High School Athletic Department welcomes all students and parents to the football game.  There is a student section for middle school students and we would ask that parents of elementary students supervise them during the game.  Students are asked to stay in the stands during the game and not congregate in the area behind the bleachers. We ask that students have rides home promptly after the game so that the area can be cleaned and secured.  

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.

Edgewood Cares is participating in the Kerlin Motors Coat Drive.  Please bring donations of coats and winter wear to school by October 18.

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.

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.

PHONES 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.

APPOINTMENTS:  Just a reminder that the office needs to be notified about any appointments that will take students out of the building during the school day.  We also need a note from the doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc. when a student returns to school. If possible, we ask that the students come to school before and/or after an appointment to minimize the amount of instruction he/she misses.  

Attendance is a critical factor that significantly affects student learning.  Students who are not in school miss out on important instruction. If possible, we would like students to be in school every day.  However, we do know that illnesses, emergencies and unexpected events can result in a student being absent. Parents have seven parent call in days each semester.  Our attendance office will call you between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each day your child is absent, if you have not called the school. We’ve had a few family vacations requested, and these days of absence count towards the seven parent days.  If a student is going to miss 3 or more days for vacation, please send a note to the office and we will generate a teacher notification/assignment sheet that must be taken around and signed by each teacher prior to the vacation.  

Attention to those attending Friday’s WCHS home game:  The High School Athletic Department welcomes all students and parents to the football game Friday night.  There is a student section for middle school students and we would ask that parents of elementary students supervise them during the game.  Students are asked to stay in the stands during the game and not congregate in the area behind the bleachers. We ask that students have rides home promptly after the game so that the area can be cleaned and secured.  We encourage parents to accompany students to the game but if you are not staying, for student safety and security, we ask that parents plan to be in the parking lot to pick up their child before the end of the 4th quarter.
