Enter the campus from Sorghum Mill Road. Follow the road until your car is at the front entrance. Drop-off for students will begin @8:50a.m. School Begins at 9:20a.m.

A staff member will be on duty until 9:15 A.M. to greet students. Students need to be inside the school building by 9:15a.m., so that they are inside the classroom by 9:20 when school starts. Children should exit cars on the right side of the car only and enter the school via the front doors. Please pull all the way forward to the next available numbered sign; this will allow 6-8 cars to unload at once. Please note there is a blind spot as cars come around the corner of the SW pod. Parents MUST stay in your car. We will have teachers who will assist your students into the building and to then to their classrooms.


** Please note we are flexiable with this on bad weather days.

NEW** Car Rider Plus Dismissal System

Big picture
This year we have a NEW dismissal system called Car-Rider Plus through School SafeID. Each family will receive a number. Each of your students will wear the number on his/her backpack. Every student will stay in their classrooms until pick-up.


The person who will be picking up your child will have the exact number hanging in car. Please enter the campus using the west entrance via Sorghum Mill Road. Follow the road all the way around so that you drive past the front door. As you enter, a staff member will type your number in a key pad and that number will flash on the classroom smart board in the school. Your students will then exit out the building and to your car. We will NOT have Walk-up/pick- up this year. We WILL have neighborhood pick-up for Twin Bridges. Students will walk with a teacher for that. But parents MUST stay in your cars a all times.

❗️Car-Rider Tag Pick-up ❗️

We will be distributing your Car-Rider Tags at your in- person “Meet the Teacher Meetings” on August 19th | during your desginated time.


If you scheduled a Virtual Teacher Meeting, you may Drive-by & pick up your Car-Rider Tag anytime between 12:15-6:15pm

Mabel’s Labels offers name labels that are dishwasher safe, machine washable, and 100% water proof for all of your child’s belongings. There are many different packages and labeling options available and shipping is free!!


Here’s how it works:

• Go to: campaigns.mabelslabels.com

Edmond Public Schools Launches Mobile App to Keep Community Informed and Involved!

Edmond Public Schools has launched an official mobile app designed to enable parents, staff, and students to stay informed and up-to-date on important issues, information, and activities underway within the school community. The free app is available for download in the Apple and Android app stores by searching for Edmond Public Schools.


The app features push notifications so that users may be notified about important events, announcements, and news in real-time such as bus delays. Users have the ability to choose which of the district’s schools they would like to follow, making their app experience personal and school-specific.


Key features include:

· Push messaging from both the district and school sites

· News

· Google Calendars

· Online grade book and attendance

· Lunch Menus

· Athletic Information

· Language Translations

The mobile app replaces the district's previous app, SchoolWay, which abruptly ceased operations last summer. The app was developed in cooperation with Intrado, provider of School Messenger solutions.
