School News

Principal Update:

Edgerton Families,

Next week, on October 21, 22, and 23, teachers will be conducting parent-teacher conferences. These conferences will be virtual. Thanks in advance for joining together and talking about how we can collectively support your children! We will have two "bell schedules" in effect on early-dismissal days. For our WRAP students in the building, dismissal will be at 1:06 p.m. (there is no Preschool on half-days). For all other students (Cont. Learning 2.0 online and Hybrid students currently online), dismissal from your online activities will be at 12:30 p.m. on each of these three days.

PSD News:

For those who were unable to view this weeks PSD Reopening Town Hall, you can still watch it via the link on the PSD website. One of the main points of discussion was our timeline for reopening. Here is an overview from district leadership:

  • Based on county transmission rates and other metrics,
    • Kindergarten and First Grade, not likely before January (Phase 4)
    • 2nd through 6th also is unlikely before January (Phase 5)
    • Secondary (7th-12th) and Edgemont 6th grade, no sooner than February or the beginning of second semester - (Phase 6).
    • Self-contained Special Education started on September 29.  This group will be shifting to small groups of five or fewer learners beginning October 27 due to the high transmission rates in Pierce County.  (Phase 3)
    • Special Education Resource students are the same as their grade level peers as noted in Phases 5 and 6. 

Levy Informational Town Hall:  Oct. 21 at 6 p.m.

Town Hall InvitationMembers of the community are invited to a Levy Informational Town Hall (virtual Zoom meeting) to learn about this upcoming proposition on the Nov. 3 ballot.  Hear how this supplemental levy will help to minimize, not eliminate, the impact of our budget deficit. 

Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) Supplemental Levy

On Tuesday, November 3, voters in Puyallup School District will be asked to consider an Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) Supplemental Levy that would generate a maximum amount of $37 million over two years to help sustain school district operations.

More Edgerton News:

--Attendance: For families that need to call in an absence, please continue to do that (253-840-8809). Teachers take attendance daily and even check for after-hours online educational activity. But, attendance expectations and protocols for absences have not changed. And, even if your child is in Continuous Learning 2.0 online and has changed teachers, you should still call in absences to Edgerton. The phone call typically will move your child's absence from unexcused to excused.

--Free meal packs for all students through the end of December: Every Monday, a week's supply of breakfast and lunch items are available for student pickup at Edgerton.  Food can be picked up any time between 11 a.m. and noon each Monday.

--Required daily health screens for students in the building: Safety protocols have been established to minimize health risks to students and school staff. Daily health screening of staff and students are required before entering school buildings.  Tech tip:  If you have an iPhone, you can make the Health Screening from an app on your phone, so it is easily accessible each morning. See the PSD website for more info.

--If your child still needs a laptop, let us know. If you missed any materials pick up dates, let us know. We are happy to meet with you and get you what you need.

--For families who wish to change their original decision (Hybrid or Continuous Online Learning), those requests are now being waitlisted until we know that appropriate staffing levels exist in either model. Those numbers, and any outstanding requests, will be looked at weekly at the district level. Please email our office team if you have any questions.
