Mrs. Boyd's Update
With the cold weather, we've had an increase in people driving to pick up and drop off their children. As we know, Edgewood wasn’t designed to support the amount of traffic we get at arrival and dismissal. Given our limited space, we work to keep things moving as quickly as possible. Please keep the following in mind so that everyone can get to school as safely and quickly as possible:
- If you are in the driveway in the morning, please have kids get out of the cars promptly at 8:30 so that more people can pull into the driveway.
- When dropping off, please pull down as far as possible. Do not stop in front of the doors. This makes the line move more slowly and creates a back up on Layton Avenue.
- Have your child’s items ready to go, so that when you stop in the driveway, they can hop out and be on their way.
- If you are parking to walk in and pick up your child, please park on 47th street. Please do not park on the west side of Layton, as this is designated for the driving pick-up lane.
- Do not park in the handicap spots if you do not have a handicap sticker or temporary wheel-chair need.
- If you are driving through pick-up, wait for all 4 buses to pull in or for the crossing guard to wave you forward.
- Remember, there is no right turn on red onto 47th from Layton.
- I heavily suggest that you do not turn left onto 47th from Layton, as traffic back-up often gets people stuck in the middle of the intersection. If you’re coming west on Layton, do a U-turn at 48th St.
Please share this information with grandparents or others that share drop off and pick up duties. We appreciate your support as we work to be as safe and efficient as possible.
Students cheered when the Student Leadership Team announced Alex's Lemonade Stand as the beneficiary of a school-wide service learning project. http://www.alexslemonade.org/
Students learned about having the courage to take charge of their learning. Our brains are muscles, and research has shown that with hard work and focus, we can get smarter.
Mrs. Adkins' and Mrs. Lepper's classes worked together on compliment hearts during buddy bonding. They're displayed outside the cafeteria.
