Hello Edison Families,
We have recently been notified that Edison has to be packed up by May 22nd. This means it’s time to get any of those library books back. Kristi and Alicia, also, asked that their students return the material they loaned out for their last project.
Both of these items may be returned at the Edison front door through the lower mail slot to the left of the double doors. You will see there are two slots. One of them is big enough for books.
If you have items that are bigger than that, please email Principal Scott (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will make arrangements with you.
Something for your bed time enjoyment…
NEW SCHOOL DESIGN
Hello Edison families!
The design of our new Edison Elementary School is taking shape. The design team—Mahlum Architects and Robertson Sherwood Architects—has completed design development for the new building and the final stages of the design process are beginning.
The school’s design reflects community input, is designed to fit the Edison neighborhood and prioritizes green space, while utilizing traditional and northwestern design styles. You can see the design and artistic renderings of the new building here:
If you have any comments on the presented school design, please share your thoughts via this online form by Sunday, May 10:
Thank you to everyone who has participated in community forums and provided feedback to the architects. Our new Edison school building will be a high-quality learning environment and community asset for generations to come.
Hello Wonderful Edison Families!
I have an update for you about next year. The decision has been made to move Edison to the Tier I start time. That means school will start at 7:55 and end at 2:25.
For those of you that normally ride the bus, nothing has changed. Your routes will continue as they did this year. For those of you within walking distance of Edison, we will have bus pick up at the First Congregational Church on 24th and Harris. The church has been kind enough to partner with us and let us park in the parking lot with drop off and pick up taking place on the 23rd street side of the property.
Now is as good a time as any to start teaching and reminding everybody about being a good neighbor. The church is helping us out and we need to be respectful of their property. That looks like maintaining a respectful noise level and staying on the sidewalk. We can show them Edison respect by staying off their lawn and out of their flower beds. Of course, there will be more to come on this subject and more to come around the specifics as we get closer to the new year.
Stay tuned, stay safe, and stay healthy.
Work on the Willard swing site continues to progress. Here are some links, if you would like to see:
Hello Edison Families,
Next week we will be starting our work together in Digital Learning. I’m sure there are going to be hiccups along the way. Should you need support please reach out to your classroom teacher first. If they are unable to help, you can email our technology ticket system and request help: email@example.com
Coronavirus COVID-19 Information
Parents and students may have questions about the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19.
At this time there are no identified cases of COVID-19 in our area. Our school district is monitoring the situation, staying in contact with public health authorities, and planning for the possibility that COVID-19 could affect our schools.
We are taking extra steps to reduce the spread of germs at school. Custodians are doing extra cleaning during the day and each night, focusing on frequently touched surfaces. Our teachers are reviewing proper hand washing and cough/sneeze hygiene with students.
Two important things for families to do to help keep yourselves and others healthy are to wash hands well and often, and stay home when sick—if your child has a fever of 100.4° or higher, or cold or flu symptoms, please notify the school and keep them home. Public health officials also emphasize covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue, not touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands, and cleaning frequently touched items. These are best practices for preventing the spread of illness.
Concern over this new virus can make children and families anxious. Talking with your kids calmly and reassuringly and providing accurate prevention information and facts can help them cope with anxiety. The National Association of School Psychologists and National Association of School Nurses have provided suggestions for talking with children about COVID-19. We hope you may find this helpful.

Información sobre el coronavirus COVID-19
Los padres y los estudiantes pueden tener preguntas sobre la propagación del nuevo coronavirus llamado COVID-19.
En este momento no hay ningún caso identificado de COVID-19 en nuestra área. Nuestro distrito escolar está monitoreando la situación, manteniéndose en contacto frecuente con las autoridades de salud pública, y planificando para la posibilidad de que COVID-19 pueda afectar nuestras escuelas.
Estamos tomando medidas adicionales para reducir la propagación de gérmenes en la escuela. Los conserjes realizan limpiezas adicionales durante el día y cada noche, enfocándose en superficies que se tocan con frecuencia. Nuestros maestros están revisando con los estudiantes el lavado adecuado de manos y la higiene de tos y estornudos.
Dos cosas importantes que las familias deben hacer para ayudar a mantenerse saludables son lavarse las manos bien y frecuentemente, y quedarse en casa cuando están enfermos. Si su hijo tiene fiebre de 100.4 ° o más, o síntomas de resfriado o gripe, notifique a la escuela y manténgalos en casa. Los expertos en salud pública también recomiendan cubrirse la tos y los estornudos con un pañuelo de papel, no tocarse los ojos, la nariz o la boca sin antes lavarse las manos, y limpiar los artículos que se tocan con frecuencia. Estas son las mejores prácticas para prevenir la propagación de enfermedades.
La preocupación por este nuevo virus puede hacer que los niños y las familias se sientan ansiosos. Hablar con sus hijos con calma y tranquilidad, y brindarles información de prevención y datos precisos, puede ayudarlos a sobrellevar la ansiedad. Las asociaciones nacionales de psicólogos escolares y enfermeras escolares han proporcionado sugerencias para hablar con los niños sobre COVID-19. Esperamos que le sea útil.
