Dear Edgewood families,
As you are aware, Edgewood suffered major damage to the lower level, due to a water main break that sent water rushing to the classes. The staff and students did an amazing job evacuating the building.

The students did an incredible job of handling the situation and remained positive. When we arrived at Park View, the staff did an incredible job helping to dismiss the students.

It is important to understand the protocols in place for an evacuation drill. Number one priority is the safe evacuation of the students to a designated location. Once that is done, then the parents are informed as to where to pick up their child.

We were very fortunate to have Norwood School nearby. A special thank you to Ms. Houston, the principal of Norwood, for her cooperation in moving her students to another location.

Mr. Collins and his custodial crew did an amazing job of moving us into Norwood.

Repairs at Edgewood are moving along on schedule and as soon as the building is ready to be occupied, we will return.

We will be having a PTO meeting at
Norwood on Monday, January 29 at 6:00.

Queridas familias de Edgewood,

Como usted sabe, Edgewood sufrió daños mayores en el nivel inferior, debido a una rotura de la tubería de agua que envió agua a las clases. El personal y los estudiantes hicieron un trabajo increíble evacuando el edificio.



Los estudiantes hicieron un trabajo increíble al manejar la situación y se mantuvieron positivos. Cuando llegamos a Park View, el personal hizo un trabajo increíble ayudando a despedir a los estudiantes.



Es importante comprender los protocolos establecidos para un simulacro de evacuación. La prioridad número uno es la evacuación segura de los estudiantes a un lugar designado. Una vez hecho esto, se informa a los padres sobre dónde recoger a su hijo.



Fuimos muy afortunados de tener la escuela Norwood cerca. Un agradecimiento especial a la Sra. Houston, la directora de Norwood, por su cooperación para trasladar a sus estudiantes a otro lugar.

El Sr. Collins y su equipo de conserjes hicieron un trabajo increíble al mudarnos a Norwood.

Las reparaciones en Edgewood avanzan a tiempo y tan pronto como el edificio esté listo para ser ocupado, regresaremos.

Dear Edgewood Families: 2017-2018


Our school’s air quality has significantly improved with the new heating and air conditioning system. Our school was recognized by state officials, who honored us with a special award.

Our action plans for the 2017-2018 school year have been updated and we will emphasize student engagement. We will continue to prioritize writing and math in our classes. The plans are posted on the school website. Our mission is to support the common core which will help students to become successful digital citizens.

This year we are encouraging parents to use our list serv. In an effort to become more efficient with communication, we will be announcing your child’s teacher for next year in an email to be delivered the second week of August. In case you do not belong to a listserv you can contact the school.

Throughout the year, our family involvement committee will be looking for support and volunteers to help us provide the best educational experiences for our children and their families. Please contact Robin Gervais at the Cranston Family Center 270-8495 to become more involved, we need your input.
