In case you missed it last week, Summit's Virtual Open House videos are available. Our teachers did a great job putting their videos together. Please enjoy and let them know if you have questions.
Understanding How to Help Your Student with Assignments
Canvas is the platform used by teachers to post student assignments and resources. We highly encourage you to look through your students' Canvas account or set up your own parent account for a more detailed look at assignments and curriculum. The link below will help with all things Canvas. https://sites.google.com/edmondps.net/canvas/home
Free Meals Available to all Children (18 & Under)
- Second meals and extra items will be charged as usual.
- USDA expects to offer FREE meals through the end of December 2020, based on the availability of funds.
- If you haven't already applied this school year, please apply for Free & Reduced-Price Meals to avoid any lapse in benefits whenever meal charges resume.
Applies to both in-school and drive-thru meals.
Please fill this application out to ensure your student continues to receive free meals after December 2020.
Summit Parent Club
Historically, we have always enjoyed the security of having a back-up volunteer in each executive board position, so if you have been thinking about volunteering, it's not too late.
Please contact Summit Parent Club President:
Kyle Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org

Cookie Dough Fundraiser Starts this Week
Chromebook Insurance Deadline is Tuesday
Remember, all families are strongly encouraged to purchase an STPP for their students to help protect you from large fees associated with accidental damage to the school-issued Chromebook. Search InTouch on the district website to purchase the 20-21 STPP. This plan is only $25 - your option to purchase this protection plan ends 9/18. Once purchased, the plan is good for the entire school year.
Think Before You Post
Summit will be kicking off a "Think Before You Post Campaign" October 5th-9th. During this week our 7th grade students will participate in a presentation and discussion with our School Resource Officer on various topics related to social media and technology. The goal of this campaign is to educate students and families of the serious consequences that can arise as a result of posting and/or reposting hoax threats, obscene photos of themselves or others, or hate speech and bullying through the #ThinkBeforeYouPost campaign. More information about this campaign, as well as other educational materials about social media use will be posted to the district’s website, www.edmondschools.net.
Please Talk to Your Students about the Dangers of Social Media

Last Chance for the Census
$1,675 per person each year for the next ten years...that is how much filling out your Census is worth in Federal funding! September is your last opportunity to be counted, and it just takes a couple of minutes. If your family has not participated yet, please click on the link and be counted: https://my2020census.gov/
Census results affect planning and funding for education—including programs such as Head Start, Pell Grants, school lunches, rural education, adult education, and grants for preschool special education. Find out more about how census results impact Edmond here: https://2020census.gov/en/community-impact.html
November 3rd is a Presidential election as well as other important county, state, and federal seats. The last day to register to vote is October 9th. You can find out all about registering here: https://www.ok.gov/elections/Voter_Info/Register_to_Vote/
The Oklahoma Voter Portal is a great tool as well to check your registration, see sample ballots, check the status of your absentee ballot (if you requested one), and more! Due to COVID-19, some polling places have changed over the past few months. Whilst you should receive a new voter registration card, you can check your polling place on the portal too!
