Safe Routes Survey

Dear Edison Families,

Edison Elementary has been selected by the Washington State Department of Health to participate in the 2016 Student Travel Survey. A representative will be calling parents sometime in May, and you may be getting a phone call.  The survey helps provide the Washington State Department of Health, the Department of Transportation, and the OSPI with data to continue programs such as the Safe Routes to School and bike safety.  We encourage you to participate in this survey. For more information, please see the attached “Frequently Asked Questions Student Travel Survey 2016” provided by the Washington State Department of Transportation. Thank you!   2016_FAQ_Parent_English_03.23_1.pdf             2016_FAQ_Parent_Spanish_03.23.pdf

Alerta policial a la comunidad de un incidente de abordaje


Esta mañana, un padre informó a la policía que un sujeto trató de convencer a su hija para que subiera en su vehículo el día 1ro de marzo después de la escuela. El sospechoso trató de convencer a la niña de 15 años a que subiera a su mini-furgoneta plateada mientras caminaba a lo largo de la avenida 7 sur. El vehículo no tenía la matrícula en la parte posterior y fue descrito como posiblemente una Dodge Caravan.   El sospechoso fue descrito como un hombre hispano pesado con una gorra anaranjada, en sus 40s. Cuando la chica negó su oferta de llevarla, él la siguió durante unas cuadras siguiendo hablando con ella. Él le dijo que era bonita y que él conocía a su padre y que estaba bien si él la llevaba.   Se les recuerda a los padres que hablen con sus hijos acerca de no aceptar nunca subir a un vehículo con alguien extraño y que llamen al 911 inmediatamente si esto sucede.

New Parent Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

The safety and well-being of your children is our paramount duty and we are committed to keeping all students, staff and guests safe. We have made a decision to adjust our parent drop-off and pick-up procedures in an effort to improve safety. Beginning Monday, March 21, the gate to the back lot playground will be closed and no longer used for parent drop off and pick up. It has been deemed unsafe by the district’s school zone safety team and our school safety team to use this area for drop-off and pick-up. Please click on the link below for more information about this decision and details for drop-off and pick-up procedures. Safety first is our motto. We appreciate your support and patience as we make this transition. Thank you.
