Edison Elementary School Mission Statement:
Edison School exists to provide our community with a safe, nurturing, academically challenging, and encouraging place to learn how to be a productive citizen in the 21st century. Our students are to be respectful, responsible, and diligent in their pursuit of academic and social excellence at all times. Our staff is committed to establish connections with the community, families, and students to promote learning academically and socially every day.
It has come to my attention that there are many unsafe acts happening when parents are dropping off and picking up their children as they leave school. I would like to review and send home again this important announcement about dropping students off and picking them up at the end of the day.
1. STUDENT DROP OFF IN THE MORNING SHOULD NOT TAKE PLACE ON EAST LAKE ROAD. You can drop off your child on Bacon Street or wait until 8:00am to drop off at door number 3. We will be opening that door in the morning at 8:00am.
2. AT NO TIME ARE YOU ALLOWED TO LEAVE YOUR CAR UNATTENDED ON EAST LAKE ROAD FOR PICK UP OR ON BACON STREET FOR DROP OFF. We have had many complaints about people blocking traffic and almost hitting people when they are crossing the street. Please adhere to these safety policies.
3. PLEASE FOLLOW THE NO PARKING SIGNS. NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO PARK ON THE BUS SIDE OF BACON STREET WHEN THEY ARE PICKING UP THEIR CHILDREN. This is to alleviate the congestion on this street. If everyone is respectful of the process, we can all get out in a timely fashion.
4. FOLLOW THE TRAFFIC PATTERN FOR DROP OFF AND PICK UP AT THE END OF THE DAY!
If everyone follows these rules and guidelines, our parking lot and pick up will work smoother and everyone will be safe. I have contacted our district police department to assist with people who continue to break our rules. Remember, WE ARE DOING THIS FOR ALL OF OUR KIDS SAFETY. Please adhere to these rules!
Mr. Harper and Mrs. Ganska
