Anyone driving past school lately might easily wonder, “How will all this construction chaos end in time for school to start?” I want to assure you that summer construction efforts will not prevent school from opening on time for our September 3 first day of school for 6th graders and new students to Edgewood. We will be ready to welcome our students as planned.
I also want to remind you that construction at Edgewood will be ongoing throughout the 2019-20 school year. This means that “school” will look different this year, as workers continue to make progress on our improvement efforts while classes are underway simultaneously. Throughout the year, we’ll do our best to alert students, parents/guardians, and staff to any temporary adjustments we may need to make in response to construction. But be assured that with patience, flexibility and anticipation for an improved school, the 2019-20 school year will be a productive and positive learning experience for everyone.
