Edison Spring Choir Show-Cancelled

Due to the ever changing situation concerning COVID-19 and school closures, Edison Middle School has decided to cancel the spring choir show on May 6th.  Though our choir students have worked very hard, the safety of our community is our top priority and a gathering of that size would not be in the best interest of our students and families.

Edison 8th Grade DC Trip Cancellation

We are sorry to report that we have cancelled the 8th Grade Trip to Washington DC that was scheduled for May 20-22nd.  The safety and well being of our students is our number one priority.  Given the current conditions with COVID-19, we feel that this is in the best interest of our students, staff and parent chaperones.  Please note that original paperwork stated that the $100.00 deposit was non-refundable. However, Traveling Classrooms will do their best to get back any money they can from vendors and will refund that money to parents. We do not know how much that will be at this time or when those refunds will be sent.  Furthermore, if you paid the $320.00 balance, that full amount will be refunded to you.  If you have any questions, feel free to email Mrs. Kittelberger.

Election Update: 3-17-2020

As many of you already know, today’s election has been officially postponed until June 2, 2020. Last night was extremely confusing regarding the status of today’s election. Last night, based upon the best information available at the time, our group (along with other entities) communicated that the polls would be open today. Unfortunately, after that communication, an order was issued by the Ohio Department of Health to close the polls. This change happened in the very late hours. We apologize for any inconvenience.

For those of you who voted early, your vote will still count. For those of you who will not have the chance to vote today, you can request an absentee ballot between now and June 2 by visiting
