Edison Elementary: 2020-2021 We're BETTER TOGETHER!

Big picture


Every time a person reports to our building, they must submit a health screener- just confirming that they've self-assessed their symptoms. Parents need to submit this form, on behalf of their child(ren), every day that they report face-to-face.


Our staff submits this form each day. Many of us have saved the site to the home screen on our phones for quick access. We've also incorporated it into a specific aspect of our morning routines (i.e. when we park our cars in the parking lot, when we first get in our cars to drive to school, before we scan into the building, etc). This has helped us tremendously in remembering to do it, so we wanted to share these ideas with our families too.

It's so important that we're vigilant about monitoring our symptoms and that we stay home when we're feeling off.

A Message From Our Art Teacher

Greetings Parents and Guardians!

My name is Mrs. May, and I am your student’s art teacher this year! This week I have sent home white construction paper for your student to use for the next project that we will be working on during our virtual sessions. Please set this paper in a safe place so that it is available when your student needs it for art. Paper will be available in your student’s classroom as your student needs it, but they must remember to pick it up on their face to face day. If they forget, they can use whatever paper is available at your home, and then transfer it over when they bring home the construction paper.

For students that are fully virtual and do not come to school, I have placed 3-4 pieces of white construction paper in their pick-up folders, so it will be available at your next pick-up.

If students use their paper prior to class, or before the next time they need it, they will need to use whatever paper you have available in your home. Plain white paper is suggested. You are welcome to get a packet of 9x12 white construction paper if you would like to have extra available for your student (any craft store carries plain white construction paper, as well as office supply stores). There is also a suggested list of supplies that we will fairly routinely use during art classes located at:


***Please note that these supplies are not necessary, and I will be giving students options for things they can use if they are lacking a supply.

I’m looking forward to all of the wonderful things your students will be creating this year!

Attendance Counts

Teachers are required to take attendance every AM and PM in PowerSchool.

If your child is going to be absent, for either a virtual day (half or full) or an in-person, small group day, please call them into our attendance line: 586-439-6590

If your child is absent from their homeroom/grade level virtual meetings, they will receive an absence in PowerSchool. If there are extenuating circumstances for a given meeting (i.e. failed connection, etc)- please email your child's teacher to inform them of the situation so they can code it appropriately in PowerSchool.

Elementary Specials Schedules

* All students must attend specials at scheduled times on days that they don't attend school in person.

* When students attend school in person, they will have the option to view recorded special later in the week (once content starts being recorded).

*Specials teachers have not yet begun recording their specials. When they start teaching their actual content over the next week or two, you will find links to the recorded content for each grade level at the end of each week. Please note- these recordings won't necessarily be of your child's actual class, but rather a recording of the lesson taught to your child's grade level.
