Students and staff are encouraged to write cards to be sent to those serving in the armed forces over the holidays. This is a great way to use your SRT time once you have your homework done. Teachers can pick these cards up from the lounge. Please take as many as you want and help us reach out to those serving. Return the prepared cards back to the lounge to be delivered to Martins Supermarket on November 1st.
FALL BREAK October 23-25 If your student will not attend school on Monday Oct 21 and/or Tuesday Oct 22, be sure to send a note that your child will not be attending school. This way teachers will be able to talk with your child ahead of time.
Boxtop: Our Edgewood PE department collects Boxtops donations to purchase PE equipment. Please turn in any Boxtops into the office or have your student give them to their PE teachers by Oct. 22nd.
U.S. History Class On Wednesday October 30th or Thursday October 31st, Mr. Devlin’s U.S. History Class will be taking a trip to the Warsaw Community Public Library during their history class. Students will be researching for their National History Day Project. We are providing applications for students who do not have a library card so they can check out books.

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.
