Since the return from Christmas break, the high number of staff absences and the lack of substitutes have impacted our daily operations. All classes will resume Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

To Edgewood Parents, Guardians, Students, and Staff, We want to update you regarding the threat situation that occurred early this morning and to provide information on why school was canceled today. Early this morning, our district was notified about a threat on social media. The threat made mention of EHS but it was unclear if this was a reference to Edgewood High School or another school. Once notified, school administration immediately contacted the Butler County Sheriff Office (BCSO) and the Trenton Police Department. Both departments worked to investigate the matter. Our Administration decided to cancel school in order to allow the investigation to take place. This action was taken out of an abundance of caution to keep all of our students and staff safe. After completion of the investigation, we have been notified that there is no credible threat and school will be in session tomorrow. We sincerely appreciate the support and quick response by the Butler County Sheriff’s Office and Trenton Police Department with this situation. We take all threats seriously and will continue to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We encourage everyone that if you see something or hear something, say something. We need every parent to stress to their children the seriousness of making statements or comments that can be perceived as threatening. Our Stay Safe. Speak Up hotline is: 1-866-547-8362.

Dear Edgewood Parents, Guardians, and Staff, We were very excited to welcome our students and staff back to school tomorrow and we hope that you have all enjoyed a relaxing winter break. Today, members of our COVID Response Team and administration met with the Butler County General Health District to review the latest COVID-19 guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). Recently, the CDC announced changes to its guidance surrounding isolation for individuals testing positive for COVID and quarantines for individuals identified as close contacts. Consistent with this guidance, beginning immediately, the following changes will be implemented: If you have tested positive for COVID-19: Stay home for five days after the onset of symptoms and/or positive test result, whichever was first, regardless of symptoms or vaccination status, and follow isolation procedures. On the sixth day of isolation, if you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of medications, and your symptoms are improving without the use of medications, you may return to school if you wear a mask for the next five days. If your fever is not gone for at least 24 hours and/or other symptoms haven’t started to get better on day six, stay home until the fever and other symptoms are better, and then wear a mask for the next five days. If you are identified as a close contact in a school setting: You may continue to come to school if you wear a mask for 10 days after your last date of exposure, regardless of vaccination status. Self-monitor or parent-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. Isolate and get tested if any symptoms appear. Follow all “Mask to Stay; Test to Play” guidance. If you are identified as a close contact outside of school: If you are fully vaccinated and/or boosted according to ODH guidelines, continue attending school, but wear a mask for 10 days after your last exposure. Fully vaccinated is defined by ODH as: If an individual is vaccinated and has had their primary series of J&J within the last 2 months, they are considered fully vaccinated. If an individual is vaccinated and has had their last primary series dose of Pfizer or Moderna, and are eligible for a booster and have received their booster, they are considered fully vaccinated. If an individual is vaccinated and has had their primary series dose of J&J, and are eligible for a booster and have received their booster, they are considered fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated, stay home for five days after your last exposure and then wear a mask around others for the next five days. If symptoms develop stay home and follow isolation protocol. Regardless of vaccination status, all close contacts should test on day five. As always, information and guidance related to COVID-19 changes quickly. We may adjust our protocols as new information is shared by ODH and the Butler County General Health District. If you have not been vaccinated or received your booster, please consider it. We continue to strongly urge all of our staff and students to wear a mask to school, regardless of their vaccination status. Sincerely, Russ Fussnecker Superintendent

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Good Afternoon Edgewood Community, Earlier today, Randy Stiver notified the school board president, Jim Wirtley, that he would be resigning his position as the Treasurer of the Edgewood City School District, effective February 4th, 2022. Randy has been our treasurer since September of 2007. During his tenure, he has made many contributions to our district. I want to take the time to list some of them. The Edgewood City School District has not been on the ballot for new operating funds since Randy has been the treasurer. The last time the district asked for new money was in 2005 for an Operating Levy. In 2009, the district successfully passed a Bond Issue the first time on the ballot to build a new high school. Randy was responsible for refinancing our bonds three times resulting in a savings of approximately 5 million dollars over the life of the bonds. In 2014, Randy was instrumental in successfully brokering a deal with Premier Health and Atrium, to construct a new medical building on the corner of Busenbark Road and Route 73. The building provides much-needed services to the Edgewood Community and was paid for through the monthly rental revenue, a revenue stream that will continue through the year 2029. Randy and his team have been recognized multiple times with the Auditor of State Award. He has worked closely with the board of education for almost 15 years to make sure that our district was always financially stable. I have worked side by side with Randy during my seven years as the superintendent and can say that it is going to be very difficult to replace him and uphold the work ethic that he brought to his position every single day. I am grateful for his support and commitment to our school district. In our conversation today, Randy stated, "it has been an honor and a pleasure to serve as the Edgewood Treasurer for the last 14 and a half years. Having seven treasurers in the previous 10 years, one of the main concerns of the board of education was finding someone who would look at this as a long-term position. I am proud to say that I was able to fill that void that the district had been experiencing. It is my hope that during my time here, I was able to gain the confidence of the board of education, parents, members of this community, and the district staff. I approached my job in a fiscally responsible manner, as I was pledged to the safeguarding of our district's assets. It has especially been an honor to work with Superintendent Fussnecker for the last seven years. Together, we have achieved many accomplishments that we believe have made Edgewood a better place for students, staff, parents, and community members. I wish nothing but continued success for this district, and while I will be leaving as the treasurer, the friends I made will last a lifetime". I want to personally thank Randy for his service to our district and wish him the very best in his future endeavors. Sincerely, Russ Fussnecker Superintendent, Edgewood City Schools

Hello Edgewood Community, Effective January 5th, 2022, Coach Frank Russo will be stepping down from his positions as Director of Public Relations, Head Track & Field, and Cross Country Coach. He has accepted a position closer to his home. Frank is a dedicated, outstanding role model who leads by example. I spoke with Frank this afternoon and he stated, "During this past year, I have grown professionally, and it's truly been an honor to have worked with outstanding leaders, staff, and students—an opportunity to celebrate Edgewood's finest in Zach Apple was an incredible experience. To be a part of an instrumental group that planned and executed the stadium renovation project which will benefit the next generation of students and athletes was special. The 2021 track season was one of the most fulfilling experiences I have had in my 35 years as a head coach, seeing our athletes gain confidence through their successes during the season culminating in a SWOC Championship and advancing two of our athletes to the pinnacle of high school sports, the state championships. It has been a memorable year, and I am grateful to the Edgewood community." He has served the Edgewood City School District and community in a very professional manner and we wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
