Message from the Principal
This past week was our first week of grade eligibility. We encourage families to check student grades in Infinite Campus to see their current grades. This would be a week of probation for anyone with a failing grade.
Thank you to all of our students for their appropriate behavior at Edmond North's home game on Friday night. I enjoyed visiting with our students in the stands and they understand the expectations for future games. Please see your email regarding game attendance.
We are still in need of teachers. If you know of anyone interested please share this link with them to apply online.
We are also in need of subsitutes. If you are available to substitute we could use your help on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week to assist us for teachers to attend trainings. Please call Eileen at 405-726-5701 if you can help out. If you would like to be a substitute and you are not trained please click here to get started.
Student IDs Required to Be Worn Each Day
Students are required to wear their student ID each and every day. All students have received their initial ID for the year. Students that do not have their ID are expected to print a sticker to wear for the day. This should only be used in emergency situations. Students who have printed too many stickers will be expected to serve lunch detention and to purchase another ID for $5.
This is one of the district's many safe guards for our schools. IDs provide a quick glance of students that belong to our school, their grade level, and which parts of the building they should be in during the day.
Dress Code Reminders
The Edmond Public Schools Board of Education dress code policy. For reference - it is available by clicking here.
Please be sure your child is dressed according to the diagram labled appropriate. We will address dress code when students violate the policy. This could mean students putting on clothing we have in our clothing collection to meet the dress code. The goal is to return to class as soon as possible while meeting the dress code expectations.
Free and Reduced Lunch Forms
This year breakfast and lunch will cost families. Meals can be costly for families. We encourage you to apply for a free and/or reduced lunch form. You never know if you are eligigle unless you try by applying.

Dates to Remember
Technology Protection Plan Purchase for $25 by 9/23
Dear EPS Parents,
All PK - 12th grade students have been issued a district device to use for learning this year. At times, PK - 2nd grade students may be given the option to take their district issued device home with them to use. In grades 3rd - 5th, students may be required to take their devices home more often. All 6th - 12th grade students will be required to take their devices home each day.
All devices have a case to prevent accidental damage, however we strongly recommend that families purchase the $25/year Student Technology Protection Plan (STPP). Parents/Guardians will be financially responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged Chromebooks and/or iPads, as well as chargers and cases. This plan covers your student’s device at school and outside of school. You may pay for the STPP online via our InTouch payment system. If you have difficulties using the payment portal, these directions should be able to help. The last day to purchase this coverage is September 23, 2022.
Thank you for your time,
EPS Technology Department

DROPPING OFF ITEMS

This will be rolled back into the common area for the students to pick up their items during passing. Please drop off LUNCHES or SCHOOL SUPPLIES ONLY.
If you are dropping off an instrument or athletic equipment we will place this by the back office door for them to come up and get during their passing or after school. Please make arrangements with your student regarding these items and where to retrieve them.
