Dear Thomas A. Edison Families:
Welcome Back Edison Village!
I am very excited about the opportunity to see all of you here in the building starting Tuesday, September 7, 2021, at 7:30 a.m. for the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. My name is Akeya Murphy and it will be a pleasure to welcome our new families into the Edison Village while looking forward to seeing our returning families. I have learned so many valuable lessons in the past year as I am sure you and your families have also. There is nothing like family. I consider each scholar that attends Edison Elementary family, and we are going to work together to keep everyone in the family safe.
We will make sure that our families are following the Covid-19 protocols to keep us safe. These protocols include handwashing, using sanitizers, social distancing, cleaning our areas and wearing face masks just to name a few. By following these protocols, we will all be working to keep each other happy, healthy, and safe. In addition, our custodians will be deep cleaning classrooms daily and everyone in the building will be wearing face masks. Additionally, Covid-19 testing will be held every Tuesday at Edison. Please make sure to complete the permission slip if you would like your scholar to be tested. Families, I am asking for your support. Please discuss the importance of your scholar(s) properly wearing their mask. If possible, take their temperature before they leave in the morning. A temperature read of 100.4 or greater indicates you should not send your scholar to school and they should attend school via Teams.
I am so proud of our Edison scholars. Our scholar’s academic achievement is like other high performing schools within the district. We pride ourselves on being an application school without the application because our scholars learn at high levels in ELA (English Language Arts) and Math. We are also a model school for both ELA and Math, which means that staff from other schools come to learn from our Edison Staff. We have an active PTA and School Advisory Committee that would love your participation. We are collaborative in our decision-making and value the input of our families.
At Edison, our priorities are scholar safety and academic achievement. We are Edison excelling, engaging and empowering! Thank you for trusting Edison with your scholar.
