Important Information

Enrollment:
  • Enrollment for 2023-2024 school year will open March 1st at 10:00 am. An enrollment link will be shared by email and posted on our school website at exactly 10:00 am on Tuesday, March 1st.
    • It is important to note that being on our current waiting list is not the same as enrolling for the 2023-2024 school year and does not give a student priority placement for the coming school year.
  • Priority placement is offered to current students, children of Edgewood staff, in-district students with existing Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), students who have a sibling who currently attends EECC and will still be attending EECC in the 2023-2024 school year, and students who live in the Richland-Bean Blossom district. All other enrollments are honored on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • If your student will be 5 by August 1, 2023, they meet the age requirements for kindergarten at Edgewood Primary School. If your student will be 5 by August 31, 2023, they might qualify for a space in Edgewood Primary School’s tuition-free K-5 classes, pending availability. More information about K-5 can be found HERE.
