EES Announcements
Edmunds Elementary - Opening Windows to the World
Welcome to Edmunds Elementary School.  Located in the heart of Burlington, VT, we can be found at 299 Main St..  Our location provides our students with walking access to much of what Burlington has to offer including the Flynn Theatre, the ECHO Science Center, Champlain College, UVM, the Fleming Museum, the Fletcher Free Library and more.  Whether we are examining exhibits, going to performances at the Flynn, or studying geology along Lake Champlain, we work to provide our students with rich, engaging experiences that enhance their learning.  If you are interested in learning mroe about EES, please feel free to come in and we'll give you a tour and answer your questions.  You can also find a lot about our school within the pages of this website so feel free to cruise around.

Back to School:  We're back on August 27th.  You will be able to visit your child's classroom until 8:30 on the first day of school.  After that, be sure to join other parents for the PTO coffee in front of the school.  

School Hours:  Breakfast is available to students from 7:45 to 8:00.  First bell is at 8:08 and school starts at 8:10. Dismissal is at 1:50 on Wednesday, 2:50 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  

School Food Programs:  Information concerning our school food programs are on line and can be found on the Parent link on this home page. You should know that we have exceptional food in Burlington - all healthy and nutritious. Fresh fruits and vegetables are in abundance throughout the day.   All students can have breakfast and snack for free in Burlington.  Forms for Free lunch can be found on the website.  You can also pay for lunch on line.  

Registration:  EES still has some openings for each grade, but not many.  Burlington has school choice based upon availability so if you are interested in enrolling your student(s) at EES, we suggest you do it soon.  You can get the registration forms on the Parent link on the menu on this page.  If you would like to know if we have availabiity, you can call or go to the Central Office at 150 Colchester Ave.  The phone number is 802-865-5332

Communication:  You will receive weekly communication from EES in the form of the Friday Flash.  You will be able to get it on paper or, if you prefer a more ecological route (which we encourage) you can opt to receive your Friday Flash electronically.  You will also be able to access it on our website through the link on the home page.  Our teachers typically send home regular newsletters.  They may be monthly or weekly, and which ever they are, they will let you know what is happening in your child's classroom.  

Student & Parent Handbook:  If you have a question, odds are the answer is in the Student and Parent Handbook. You can access it on line on our home page.  Just click on the link to the left.  

Getting Involved:  We appreciate volunteers at EES.  In fact, we had close to 300 volunteers help out last year at EES - whether it was one event or many, we are grateful for every effort on behalf of our school.  The first few weeks are a time when we work with students to establish their new communities in their classrooms, but after we've accomplished that, you will find plenty of opportunities to volunteer.  Keep an eye on your child's back pack every Friday where you will find newsletters to let you know what the needs are.  The PTO will also let you know about opportunities to help out, starting with the day before the first day of school - Green up/Work Day.
