Important Information for Edison Families

Dear Edison Middle School Families, It is with great sadness that we must communicate the passing of one of our 7th Grade students due to health complications. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the student’s family and friends. Counselors are on site and available to assist students. In order to allow our students time to process and grieve this loss, we are postponing state testing today.
