Weekly Announcements for Week of January 11

Hello all in the Land of the Eagles,
This is Sally Whitelock and Benita Cervantes with announcements for the week of January 11 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 in school in person as long as possible. THANK YOU!

Return to In person learning
* Kindergarten – 5th grade students who have chosen online learning for the 2nd semester will continue learning remotely with the same schedule and will continue using Seesaw to submit assignments.
* ECE-5th grade students who have chosen in person learning, will begin attending school in person, at Edison on January 11. The in person school day will be 9:00 AM-3:00 PM. Specials will continue to be remote, asynchronous and students will be expected to do these lessons/activities at home.
– Students who attend school in person will continue to be required to follow health precautions to include: All students will stay in their classrooms throughout the day except for bathroom breaks, recess and outdoor learning. Both breakfast and lunch will be served in the classroom. All students will have their own sets of school supplies that they use each day and will not be shared with other students. All students will be required to wear masks while on school grounds and socially distance as much as possible.
– Students will bring their school supplies and Chromebooks to school and back home each day in case of a quarantine or return to remote learning.

Picture Day
Lifetouch will be at Edison on Thursday, January 14 to take picture retakes for ECE-2nd grade in person students and pictures for all 3rd-5th grade and online students.

If your student is learning 100% online and you would like a school picture, please plan to bring your child(ren) to Edison on Thursday, March 14 between either 8:00-9:00 AM or 2:40-4:00 PM. Online students will enter the building through the front doors and go to the gym for pictures, wear masks except when taking pictures, and then leave the building upon completion of the picture.
