    About Edison School

    Edison Elementary School is a neighborhood school located just a few blocks away from Alameda’s bustling Park Street and Central Avenue shopping and dining district.  With a population of approximately 475 students in grades Kindergarten through fifth and a robust Parent Teacher Association, Edison Elementary School is a thriving and vibrant community.  The staff is made up of highly dedicated individuals who bring years of experience and knowledge to teaching each child at Edison.  Edison Otters are active and hard-working students who contribute to the school community in a number of ways.  Our students strive to uphold the Edison Citizen Agreements and are committed to our Go Green efforts.  Edison’s PTA further enhances the learning environment at Edison with many programs, funding, field trips, technology, classroom materials, and other essential resources.

    Coronavirus Response - Update

    Dear Edison Families,

    Thank you for your patience throughout the process of us addressing the Coronavirus concerns. As you heard from Superintendent Scuderi on Friday, March 13th, school will not take place on campus for at least the next 2 weeks, and updates since them halted in-school instruction for the remainder of the school year.

    In response to the school closures in Alameda USD for this week and next, Edison teachers have developed Distance Learning Opportunities Plan for Edison School. This plan includes grade-appropriate activities that students can do from home, as well as Login Help and directions on how to access to the Clever Portal.  These learning opportunities are in a combination of both online as well as paper form, depending on the grade level.  This will be updated as needed over the time period we will be off school campus

    In addition, AUSD's Teaching and Learning staff has developed a set of non-digital learning activities (meaning they require no computer or internet connection) and digital learning activities (meaning they are available on the internet) for our families to explore as teachers develop their curriculum for the next several weeks. Please take a look! They are available on the AUSD Online Learning Opportunities portal.

    We hope that you and your family are healthy, and are able to enjoy this time with each other.  Please let us know if you have any questions or need help accessing online learning opportunities.

    Sincerely,

    Greg Sahakian

    Principal, Edison School

    Attendance Is Important

    Please remember...Attendance is important!

    If your child is absent, please call the Edison Attendance Line at 510-748-4002, ext. 2 to report this to the school.  Please follow the  instructions to leave a message, including: Your name, relationship to the student, the student's name, room number, teacher, the date of absence or tardy, and the reason for the absence.  Messages will be collected daily.

    Students who arrive on time and are ready to go in the morning get the most out of their school experience. Students who arrive late must go to the office to obtain a late pass before they are allowed in the classroom.  This applies to all students.

    Please ensure your child is ready to go for school by preparing their lunch the night before if they are bringing, deciding on what to wear the night before, and that backpacks, schoolwork, and everything needed for the day is ready to go and by your front door.  By preparing for the next day, it can make your morning run that much smoother, and help your child arrive to school on time.
