Dear Edison K8 Families,

By now you have heard the Boston Public Schools will be closing from Tuesday, March 17th-May 4th, 2020. In an effort to support our families to the very best of our abilities the Edison K8 staff have put together this website to centralize instructional assignments, food resources, home resources and more. Over the school closure weeks we will centralize information here. This site will be revised regularly.

We fully recognize families are rearranging their households, setting up childcare, and so much more to accommodate and navigate these next several weeks. We encourage families to reach out with any questions and concerns. We are here for you! We are in this together! We CAN do this!

Samantha Varano, Principal svarano@Bostonpublicschools.org /617-869-5844 (cell)

Stacey Dodge, Assistant Principal of Grades 5-8 swoods@bostonpublicschools.org

Rebecca Lee, Assistant Principal of Grades K-4 alee6@bostonpublicschools.org

Families are also welcome to reach out to your child's individual teachers.

Thank you,

Edison K8 Administration
