    earbuds Important Earbud Reminder
     
    We'd like to remind all students and families that with the increase of technology use in our school, ear buds and/or headphones have become a necessary basic school supply and - similar to pencils - are something used every day in classrooms. Please check in with your Edgewood student to make sure that he or she has working headphones or ear buds that can be left at school. If you are not able to send a pair of headphones or earbuds due to financial concerns, please let your student's dean know. If your student is in need of an extra pair of ear buds for class, Edgewood does have a vending machine available in the sixth grade hallway with ear buds for $1.50 each. (Please note: vending machine accepts quarters only.)  Thank you for your help in ensuring your student has this necessity.
