About

School hours:

The school instructional day is: 8:45 – 3:30.
Half-day students’ schedules are: 8:45-11:40.
Breakfast begins at 8:00 AM and students are dismissed to go to the playground to line up at 8:40 AM.

For the safety of our students, during the school day, every door entering the school will be locked. If students are tardy, they will need to enter through the front door and receive a tardy slip to enter class. Visitors will need to be buzzed in at the front door and report to the office.

Drop off and Pick up:

Students who walk to school should be safe and responsible on the way to and from school. They may come to school at 8:00 for breakfast or to play/line up after 8:30. Playground supervision begins at 8:30 AM. Students will be encouraged to leave the playground to walk home as soon as school ends.

Parents who drive their students to school are asked to drop off and pick up their students in the “Kiss and Go/Greet and Get” Lane on Perry Street (area that is painted with polka-dots). Please do not leave your car unattended or park in this area. Please do not park or drop off students in the parking lot. When students are dropped off, they will enter the playground to go to breakfast or line up with their teacher. Click here for more information about drop-off & pick-up traffic and safety.

If the temperature is below 20 degrees or it is very wet/windy, the administration will require an “inside day.” On these mornings, 3rd-5th graders will report to the auditorium and ECE-2nd grade students will report to the gym until school starts. Cafeteria doors, playground doors and the front door will be accessible on these days for children to easily enter the school.

Student supervision:

Student supervision begins on the playground daily at 8:30 and ends daily at 3:40.

Bus Conduct:

In order to ensure safety of students riding the bus, students should: use the bus/bus stop that is assigned to them, treat others with respect, talk quietly, and keep arms and belongings in the bus.

Emergency Information:

In case of an emergency, it is important that parents/guardians ensure that correct information is on file at the school. Please update the office staff and teachers as needed, including: parent/guardian names, address, phone numbers, emergency contacts and numbers, and medical information.

Attendance/Absences/Tardies:

If a student is unable to attend school, parents should call 720-424-7784 before 9:00 AM. Though students should remain home if they have a fever or are vomiting, regular attendance is essential to a student’s success in school. If students are late to school, they will have to enter the building through the front door, get a tardy slip from the secretary, and then report to class. Parents should work hard to support students in developing responsibility and strong work habits through making sure students come to school every day and on time. Excessive absences or tardies may result in an attendance plan developed through parents and the school staff.

Illness/Injury/Health Clinic:

There is a health clinic on-site for students needing assistance. Edison only has a part-time nurse and a part-time health aid. If students are injured or sick, parents will be notified. Students will only be allowed to leave school with parent permission and with people listed on the emergency contact forms.

Medication is only allowed at school after being approved by the nurse and bottles must be clearly identified, in the original container, with dosage instructions. A doctor’s signed form must accompany the medication. Only the nurse may dispense medication. Download a PDF of the medication policy here.

Dress Code:

Students should wear clothing that is appropriate for the weather and the school setting. Students should not wear: hats, short shorts, see-through apparel, tank-top shirts, flip-flops or high heeled shoes at school. Gang related clothing is not allowed at school.

Lost and Found:

All clothing found on the school grounds will be placed in the lost and found box inside the cafeteria. Please write your child’s name in coats to support returning lost clothing to children. All lost and found items not picked up in a timely matter will be donated.

Problems at School:

It is very important for children to view teachers and parents as a team working together for the best interest of the child. Therefore, if you or your child is having a problem at school, it is the school policy that you first speak to the teacher about this problem. Please try to work as a team to resolve problems. If problems continue please call the office and set up a meeting with the principal or assistant principal.
