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.

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.

All tank tops and shirts must have shoulder coverage that is ID width.  Under garments should not be visible.

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.
