FIRST DAY PACKET
A packet will be sent home with your student on the first day of school. It contains important information about Edison - a majority of the information and forms can be found online. There will be several items that need your immediate attention and should to be returned to school the next day. Please look for the checklist to determine what needs to be returned immediately.
The Edison Express is our weekly newsletter. Please take a moment to read it and stay updated on all the wonderful things that are happening at Edison Elementary School. The Edison Express can also be found online at the school’s website: http://edison.alamedausd.ca.schoolloop.com.
School lunches will be served beginning the first day of school. The school lunch costs $2.50 and includes milk. You may come to the office to prepay, credits will be sold in increments of ten (10 lunches will cost $25.00). Checks should be made out to Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) and include your child’s name and room number. Applications for Free and Reduced lunches will go home on the first day of school and should be returned promptly. You may also choose to send your child with a lunch from home. We ask that you are mindful that we have students with severe nut allergies. There are many ways to be supportive of those students, including providing your child with lunches that are nut-free.
Each year parents ask about purchasing school supplies. Working with the staff, we have developed a list of suggested supplies. The school will provide the necessary supplies over the course of the year. However, we are always grateful for any additional support from parents to supplement our classroom programs.
