You should have received an invite to join Edsby. Edsby is a new communication and learning platform that Medicine Hat Public School Division is using. Edsby can be used to communicate with teachers, enter absences, keep up to date on school events and learning as well as viewing report cards.
We have linked a Support Document to assist you with getting setup with Edsby.
If you did not receive the invite from Edsby , please check your “junk” folder. If not all parent/guardians of your child receive an invite, they may need to verify their email by contacting the school. Once added, it takes one day to sync before a new invite can be sent.
In order for us to ensure that bus students are getting home safely, we kindly ask that guardians of students in Kindergarten to Gr. 3 call the school to inform us if your child is not taking the bus (being picked up or if they are walking home).
We appreciate your support in ensuring that we are getting our youngest bus travelers home safely.
If you have any questions, please call us at the school.
Ross Glen School Clothing Items
We are happy to announce we have a new line of Ross Glen clothing, and other items, available to our school community for purchase! We know school clothing, and other items, creates a sense of belonging, builds a feeling of community, and encourages school pride. We are excited to offer this to our students and school community!
Options include masks, neck gaiters, mini hand sanitizer bottles, and fanny packs (to keep masks, and other items, safe while the students are enjoying playing at recess).
Sales will take place directly on our online store. Families are able to order and pay for their choices directly. There is no cost for shipping as items will be shipped to the school and sent home with your child.
