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.

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.
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.
OUR MISSION: Edgewood will maximize student learning.
