Today was the first day for Kindergarten students whose last names started with the letters N-Z. This second group of students was just as excited as the first about being at school and so were their teachers. In the gym Mr. Banks and a team of staff members were helping students find their teacher's name so they could get in line preparing to go to class and start their learning adventure for the day. I overheard Mr. Banks introduce two young ladies as one sat down behind the other. My heart melted as I heard the first five year old tell the other they would be friends, complimented her on her outfit, and started a conversation.

School has started but it’s not too late to complete an application for the Free and Reduced School Meals & Fee Waiver Program! Remember, you do need to apply in order to qualify for this year. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year must have been completed after July 1, 2022. The program that provided free meals to all students as part of Covid Relief is no longer in place, therefore you must complete an application in order for your child/children to receive a free or reduced-price meal and possibly a waiver of school fees. You can apply anytime during the year. If your circumstances change during the year you may want to consider updating your application. The information to follow has previously been sent out but may assist you as you determine qualification and to assist with the completion of the application processes. Thank you and enjoy your day! Previously emailed information: Dear Edgewood Families, The following are important reminders concerning student lunches: If your child will be buying lunch, you can now go on EZpay and apply funds to your child’s account so that you are ready for the first day of school. The EZ pay link can be found on the Edgewood District website. The United States Department of Agriculture did not extend the food service program waivers for 2022-2023 that were implemented as part of the nation’s COVID-19 response. Therefore in order for students to receive free or reduced-priced meals during the 2022-2023 school year, families need to complete the online application and qualify. Even though you may have not qualified in the past, new income guidelines are now in place. Applications are currently being accepted and can be submitted @ www.lunchapplication.com If you completed an application for the Free & Reduced Meals and Fee Waiver Program BEFORE July 1, 2022, you will need to resubmit your application. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year became effective July 1 and after. For those who have not applied, or want more information before applying, we have included the income eligibility chart on the Food Services page of our website to assist you in making that decision. If you have already declined the application in Final Forms and now wish to apply, you can go back to Final Forms and complete only that section if the rest of your child’s information is already updated. You can also use the link provided below to complete the application process. You will need your child’s School ID number. Please contact your child’s school if you do not have your child’s School ID Number and you intend to apply. They should be able to get that number for you. We have received some paper copies already. If you are submitting your application by paper, please remember to complete Part 6 of the application including your signature. Incomplete applications cannot be processed and you may experience delays in processing as applications are returned for completion. Approval of the “Reduced Price” status allows for Lunch to be received for $0.40 and Breakfast for $0.30 regardless of grade level or building. There is no reduction in school fees should you qualify for reduced-priced meals. Meal Prices 2022-2023 Breakfast $1.50 All buildings Lunch – Edgewood Primary, Edgewood Intermediate, Edgewood Early Childhood Center $3.00 Lunch - Edgewood Middle & High School $3.25 If you have any questions, please contact David Jewell at email@example.com. Thank you and we look forward to serving your students this year.

Good Morning Edgewood Primary Families, The start of the day was great! I wanted to remind families that you must have your pick up placard in the window of your vehicle for car riders. If you did not pick one up at Open House you will need to come to the walk-up area to pick up your child, which is now at the side door by the main entrance. You must present your license or photo identification when picking up without the placard. All parents/guardians walking up will also need to present the placard for us to dismiss students. Have a wonderful day, Ms. Halsey
