Have a great weekend!
We had another great week! Next week is our first full week of school!
Thank you very much for following our arrival and dismissal procedures listed below, things went well this week. Things will smooth out even more next week as we are all back in our school routine!
Please remember to report your child's absence. You can do this by calling our attendance line and leaving a message, or you can report an absence through the Parent Connection app. The district has a new attendance policy (details below). You will receive a phone call if you have not reported an absence. You may receive a call if your child is tardy to school as well, because teachers take attendance in the morning and afternoon. By arriving late, your child may have been marked absent and it may not be corrected before attendance calls go out.

WWCSD K-12 Attendance Protocol
Wayne-Westland Community Schools K-12 Attendance Protocol

- Three (3) absences or equivalent - A teacher will make a phone call to discuss the reason(s) for the absences and seek to support the family in getting the child to school.
- Six (6) absences or equivalent - An attendance letter is sent to communicate the district’s concern about attendance and highlight the steps in the attendance protocol.
- Nine (9) absences or equivalent - A meeting will be set up between the family and an administrator or support staff member to discuss attendance barriers and to highlight the urgency of regular attendance.
- Twelve (12) absences or equivalent - Student’s name and address are submitted to Concentric to conduct a home visit. The school will notify parents of the upcoming visit. The details of that home visit are shared with the school to support the student’s regular attendance in school.

Student Code of Conduct
Student Drop Off
Just a reminder, you can use the drop off line to drop off your student. The student should exit the car from the passenger side and the adult should stay in the car. There is no parking in the drop off line.
Another option is to park in a marked parking space. Then, you can walk your child to the door.
Please DO NOT drive through the parking lot and cut back into the drop off line.
Thank you for your help and for making sure our students arrive safely!
Student Dismissal Reminders
Students who attend Champions or Bright Futures are dismissed to those programs in the building.
All other students are picked up by a parent/guardian from the classroom. Each teacher has communicated a dismissal location.
If there is a change for your child at the end of the day, please communicate this change to the teacher via Dojo and with the office by 2:30pm. This will give us plenty of time to alert the student and teacher (or guest teacher).
We will not dismiss students after 2:30pm unless it is an emergency.

Coming Soon: Extra Slice of Pizza on Thursdays, Snack bar, and Buying Milk
You can now add money to your child's account for an extra slice of pizza or snack from the snack cart. PaySchools is the website used by the Nutrition Department: https://payschoolscentral.com/
Pizza day is every Thursday at Edison! Students receive a slice of Dominos Pizza at lunch, but they are able to purchase a 2nd slice. You can send in $2.00 cash with your child on Thursday (by 9:30am when the pizza order is placed). The money will be collected and sent to the kitchen. The money MUST be turned in so we have an accurate lunch count. Parents could also send in $10.00 and that would cover an extra slice for 5 weeks because the money will be added to the student's account.
If a student brings a lunch from home and they would like milk, it costs $0.50. Although we provide a free breakfast and lunch to all students, the state does not reimburse schools for milk only.
