  • ParentSquare Test Notification Delay

    Posted by Brandi Graham on 9/30/2022

    Please note that there has been a delay in the test notifications scheduled today through the new ParentSquare platform. We will be sure to update everyone when the test notifications will be sent out and we thank you for your patience.

    As a reminder-
    The ParentSquare platform will replace our previous OneCallNow system which was used to send informational and emergency alerts (e.g. snow days, emergency closures, safety drills) to staff and parents. All emergency notifications and teacher/school posts will be sent to the email and cell phone contact information that is currently on file with Edwards-Knox Central School District in SchoolTool. It is critically important that we have your most up to date contact information. If you need to update your phone numbers or email addresses, please contact your child’s school secretary.

    Grades PK-6, 315-562-8130, ext. 25533
    Grades 7-12, 315-562-8131 ext. 25520

  • FAFSA

    Posted by Brandi Graham on 9/26/2022

    Hello EK Families!

    The Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2023-2024 aid year is right around the corner! October 1st is the first day the application becomes available.

    The FAFSA is the form that the federal government, states, colleges and other organizations use to award financial aid. The FAFSA is a crucial first step in the college planning process and essential to accessing grants, scholarships, work-study programs, and federal student loans. We understand this process can be intimidating! Therefore, Edwards-Knox School, in partnership with SUNY Potsdam, will be offering a FAFSA workshop for students and their families!

    If you would like to register for the event please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/coGap9gtmazZvP6r7 or call the school counseling office at 315-562-8131 Ext: 25521.

    I have many families that ask, "Do I need to fill out the FAFSA even if we won't qualify for financial aid?". The short answer is, "YES!". Here's why: https://www.road2college.com/do-i-have-to-fill-out-fafsa-if-i-dont-qualify-financial-aid/.

    Please contact the school counseling office if you have any questions or concerns. We hope to see you there!

  • Welcome Back!

    Posted by Brandi Graham on 8/31/2022

    August 31, 2022

     

    Dear Edwards-Knox Families:

    I am excited to welcome you back for another great school year! Our staff, faculty and administrators have been hard at work over the summer preparing for the year ahead with the goal of setting our students up for success. At Edwards-Knox, our vision is that our school community will inspire all students to be kind, resourceful, responsible and productive citizens. The first day of school for all grades is Tuesday, Sept. 6.

     

    The health and safety of our students remains our top priority for the 2022-23 school year. Our school district continues to work closely with local, county and state health officials to monitor COVID-19.

     

    At this point in time, students or staff who test positive for COVID-19 (or have symptoms) should follow these CDC guidelines:

    • Isolate at home for five days. Afterward, those with no symptoms may return to school. When students or staff return, they should wear a mask at school for five days.

    • Students or staff who have symptoms may return to school after day five if they have been fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and symptoms are improving.

    • Students or staff who have been exposed to COVID-19, have been sick, or tested positive, should wear a well-fitting mask for a full ten days.

     

    Our school can provide at-home COVID-19 test kits for students upon request. If you need a home test, please contact our School Nurse Erin Geer, RN, at 315-562-8131, ext. 25518. Unless noted above, face masks are optional. You can find more updated COVID-19 information on the School Nurse section of our website, www.ekcsk12.org. If there are any changes to these protocols, the district will notify you.

     

    As we begin a new school year, you may also notice some new faces. We have several new employees who I would like to welcome to our school community:

    • Emiley Berger – AIS Teacher

    • Cody Bice – Custodial Worker

    • Lori Brewer – Long Term Substitute/Half Time Teacher, Music Room

    • Elizabeth Burke – Physical Education Teacher

    • Bridget Casey – Teacher Assistant

    • Rose Cheely – Teacher Assistant

    • Brandon Church – Custodial Worker

    • Miranda Fiacco – AIS Teacher

    • Jessey Gates – Registered Nurse

    • Kathy Hance - Long Term Substitute/Half Time Teacher, Music Room

    • Alexandria Hitchman – 7-12 ELA Teacher

    • Anisa Hotaling – Special Education Teacher

    • Greg Jadlos – One-Year Music Teacher

    • Greg Jenne – Long Term Substitute/4-8 Counselor

    • Ashley LaPoint – Bus Driver

    • Noelle Morrison – Second Grade Teacher

    • Becky Salego – Long Term Substitute/Literacy Coach/Elementary Teacher

    • Ashley Stowell – Fifth Grade Teacher (Effective 3/9/22)

    • Bobbie Trudeau – 7-12 Science Teacher

    • Danielle Vetere – Part Time Literacy Intern

     

    If you have any questions as the new school year begins, please reach out to your child’s teacher, principal or to me directly.

     

    Thank you for your continued support of our school. On behalf of our administrators, faculty and staff, I look forward to welcoming your children to school on Tuesday, Sept. 6. I wish all of you a positive and successful school year!

     

    Warm regards,

    Erin E. Woods

    Superintendent of Schools

  • Bus Changes

    Posted by Brandi Graham on 8/29/2022
    Dear Edwards-Knox Community,
    As we face a current bus driver shortage and changes in student pick-up and drop-off locations, we have updated our school bus runs for the upcoming 2022/2023 school year. Please note the following changes below.
    There will be three school buses that will be affected by our schedule change. Any child(ren) that rode bus 25(Buffalo), 26(Deer), or 30(Rooster) should be expecting a different pick up time, and may look a little different in September. Please note that Bus 25 takes the majority of the town of Edwards, meaning bus 23 will no longer be picking up anywhere in the town. If you would like a rough estimate for your individual house, please call the bus garage and speak to Shawn.
    Also, beginning in September, the bus garage will be processing all bus passes. We ask that a note is still provided and sent in with your child. All changes that occur prior to 1:30PM will need to be emailed to buspasses@ekcsk12.org or by calling the bus garage at (315) 562-8133. Establishing transportation cutoff times for schedule changes helps to ensure that all of our students are bused to their correct locations.
    All changes after 1:30PM are for EMERGENCY changes ONLY. A change that would require a child to be taken off the bus and placed on another bus, or to be held back at school for pick-up would be considered emergent. These changes will require a phone call to the main office (315) 562-8130.
    If you have any questions or would like more clarification, please contact me. I will be in the building most of the summer and checking voicemails regularly.
    See you soon!
    Sincerely,
    Shawn DeLorme Jr.
    Senior Bus Driver
    315-562-8133 or
    315-562-8130 Ext. 25530
