Edison Announcements for week of November 16

Hello all in the Land of the Eagles,
This is Sally Whitelock and Benita Cervantes with announcements for the week of November 16 for the Edison Eagles…

Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time. We would like to continue to encourage everyone to stay healthy and do your part to get our community more healthy – wear masks, socially distance, wash your hands, keep your social groups very small. We all need to work together to keep our students at school in person and get more students back into our schools. THANK YOU!

DPS COVID-19 indicators continue to trend in a concerning direction. Last week, after reviewing the data, DPS is cautiously continuing with in-person learning for ECE through second-graders, as well as our students in center-based programs, with full support from Denver Health experts. In their review of the data, they have found very low transmission rates within our schools. As a reminder, our youngest learners and our students with disabilities benefit the most from in-person learning as they work to develop fundamental literacy and social-emotional skills. We will continue to update families as DPS makes further decisions.

Edison Spirit Friday
Friday, November 20 – History (famous historic figure) dress up day — Bring pictures of or dress up as your favorite animal or imaginary animal!

Spread Kindness (not germs)
This is a difficult time for many families in our community and many non-profit organizations are struggling to provide Thanksgiving food baskets to the community during the pandemic. Therefore, next week, Edison staff will be distributing Thanksgiving baskets to a small number of Edison families in need. If you are interested in donating non-perishable food, gift cards or cash (which will be used to purchase food/gift cards), please send this with your child or bring this to Edison’s office on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday next week. THANK YOU in advance for your kindness.

Happy Thanksgiving
No school November 23-27. Have a relaxing thanksgiving week.
