Response to Board Meeting Concerns Dear Edgewood Community, A few points were brought up at the recent board meeting that we felt needed to be addressed with our families. We would like to provide a little clarity and information on the recurring themes from those concerns brought forth. A concern surrounded a food shortage in the district, but primarily at the high school and middle school. Administration and cafeteria staff at both buildings have confirmed that at no time was there a shortage of food. There are times that a student’s first choice of an item may not be available but there are always options for that student. Concerns about transportation, bus routing, and delayed rides were also brought forward. When looking into this, it was determined that yes there have been delays. Each year we undergo delays and adjustments to pick up and drop off times during the first three or four weeks based on the timing of the route as it is being run. Some of the factors that have impacted pick up and drop off times this past week include: a train blocking a crossing, a car accident, a road blocked due to a medical emergency at a residence, road work, and road closures. Ohio Administrative Code requires that bus routes be approved no later than 10 days from the beginning of the school year. It also gives authority for the district to make adjustments to the routes if needed. Adjustments are being made and will be communicated if they affect your child’s pick-up or drop-off time. We clearly heard concerns from parents that students on quarantine did not receive work to complete. Administrators have notified teachers that they are responsible for providing work for the days that the student is out for quarantine or isolation. There could be a delay of a day or so while teachers prepare those assignments. These could be online assignments, packets/textbook assignments, or a combination of both. A student has the number of days they are out to make up the work. They are welcome to submit online or paper assignments early if they complete them prior to that date. If your child gets quarantined and they do not receive work to complete, please email the teacher they have not received assignments from to make sure they are aware and copy the building principal so they can assist if needed. We have had questions concerning the hybrid model being used at the high school. The hybrid model is one where students will attend in person for part of their week and have either online or textbook-type assignments for the days they are not in person. This is being done to reduce the impact of COVID on students. Here is more information provided by the high school to their families. EHS Hybrid Model Info We appreciate the way in which concerns were expressed during our last board meeting and will continue to update you with relevant information as needed.

Attention Edgewood Parents, Due to an automobile accident that has taken place this afternoon, route 73 has been blocked. We have been rerouting drivers around the accident which could result in an unavoidable delay in your child's arrival at their bus stop today.
