  • Student Dismissal Changes Effective 12/4/2023

    Posted by Brandi Graham on 11/30/2023

    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,

     

    The Edwards-Knox Central School District prioritizes the health and safety of our students by continually evaluating our safety procedures and protocols. We take great pride in ensuring all safety measures are followed each school year. We recently reviewed our dismissal procedures and have established a safer, more efficient process for students that are picked up from school at dismissal time.

     

    Beginning on Monday, December 4th, students that are being picked up at dismissal time will need to be picked up from the rear parking lot. All parents/guardians/authorized persons should drive their vehicle to the rear parking lot. Deputy Montroy and/or assigned school officials will direct you to line up along the sidewalk at the beginning of the High School Agricultural Entrance and will continue along the sidewalk to the Cougar Entrance. Mrs. Truesdell, our Attendance Clerk will begin signing out students at 2:35 p.m.  When students have been successfully signed out and are securely inside the vehicle, vehicles are permitted to cautiously pull out of line and proceed to exit the parking lot. You will not need to leave your vehicle for any reason.

     

    As a reminder, please have any bus passes or pick up passes submitted to the Main Office by 1:30 p.m. Any bus passes or notes that come in after 1:30 p.m. may not be accommodated. 

     

    Beginning December 4th, 2023:

    • Student pick up will begin in the rear parking lot of the school. 
    • Vehicle line up can begin at 2:30 p.m. from the High School Agricultural Entrance sidewalk and continue along the sidewalk to the Cougar entrance. (Please do not leave your vehicle. Your child(ren) will be dismissed to your vehicle).
    • Mrs. Truesdell will begin signing students out at 2:35 pm.
    • Elementary students (Pre-K-6th) will be released between 2:40 p.m.- 2:50 p.m.
    • High School Students (7th-12th) will be released at 2:50 p.m. 
    • Vehicles may leave the lineup after students have been signed out and are securely in the vehicle. 

     

    There will be no change to early student pick up dismissals in the Main Office prior to 2:30 pm. 

     

    Your patience is greatly appreciated while we transition to this new student pick up dismissal procedure.  Deputy Montroy and/or school officials will assist with the new traffic pattern as we implement this new procedure.

     

    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at any time. 

     

    Thank you,

     

    Erin E. Woods

    Superintendent of Schools

  • Transportation Staff

    Posted by Brandi Graham on 2/1/2023
    Our E-K School District is very thankful for the volunteer community support and dedication of our Transportation Staff during a recent vehicle accident.
    With empty school buses returning to school on Tuesday afternoon, our drivers and monitors that are certified First Responders and members of Local Fire Departments quickly took action by being the first on the scene of an accident. Empty buses were used as road blocks and basic first aid was performed until local Rescue and Law Enforcement arrived.
    We sincerely thank all of our Transportation Staff for their quick and selfless actions and feel very fortunate to have so many volunteer emergency service employees within our E-K family!

  • Edwards-Knox community members approve two capital project proposals

    Posted by Zachary Ribert on 12/13/2022

    On Tuesday, Dec. 13, Edwards-Knox Central School District residents voted to approve both of the district’s proposed capital project proposals.

    • Proposition 1: 84 YES (70%) to 36 NO (30%)
      • $6.8 million for various improvements outlined on the 2022 Capital Project section of our district website.
    • Proposition 2: 71 YES (61%) to 45 NO (39%)
      • $750,000 to construct outdoor toilet rooms with a concession stand and an outdoor classroom area near the school's playing fields.

    With both propositions now approved, work can begin in the near future to help protect the community’s long-term investment in our facilities.

    “We would like to thank the Edwards-Knox community for their continued support of our school district,” said Superintendent Erin E. Woods. “The Board of Education and our administrative team are excited to move forward with these projects to further enhance the learning environment at Edwards-Knox Central School.”

    A complete list of school projects can be found on the 2022 Capital Project section of our district website.
