Lost and Found

Does your child seem to be missing coats, shirts, shoes, water bottles and/or notebooks? Rather than replace them as holiday gifts, have your student check the lost and found box located outside the office. Each day we gather the leftover items left behind by students and place them in this box in hopes that the owners might collect them at a later date. Right now the box is full and ready for collection!

Office Hours During the Holidays

The Edgemont office will be closed starting at noon on December 17th. It will reopen again at 7:00 am on January 4th.

Extended Absences

If you are planning to have your child out beyond the normal holiday dates, please notify the office as soon as possible so we can mark them accordingly. This will help avoid the phone calls after the fact to try and clear up the unexcused absences. Also, we can help get homework so students don't fall behind.


Struggling in a class? Need a tutor? We have tutors available to help you!

How to access tutoring:

  • Let the teacher for the class you are struggling with know that you need a tutor
  • Let your homeroom teacher know that you would like to work with a tutor during that time
  • Come in for after school homework help sessions on Tuesdays (all subjects) and Wednesdays (Math specific)
  • Make an appointment to meet with an online tutor outside of the school day or on weekends

Contact Mrs. Mozrall (On-Time Graduation Specialist) if you have questions about how to set up tutoring!
