Edgemont COVID-19 Assistance Efforts

Residents throughout Edgemont have stepped up and responded in a variety of ways to help during the current COVID-19 crisis.  Given the wide range of projects, we thought it would be helpful to create a directory to highlight these efforts.

All of these projects require ongoing assistance so if you’re interested in getting involved, take a look and contact the project lead.  Also, if you have an initiative you’d like listed, just let us know.

This is a constantly evolving list so please check back frequently for updates.

Thanks and stay safe.

Please see the following important announcements from the Edgemont School System:

 

Dear Edgemont Community Members,

This email is targeting the broader community to address a few community topics. First and foremost, we trust you and yours are well or recovering quickly. We thank all community members who are on the frontlines in medicine and health care and first responders who are putting themselves and their families at risk by helping others and contributing to the greater good.

School facilities

School facilities are closed. Please do not use the school grounds at all. This includes all fields, courts and playgrounds. Anytime groups are gathering, you are extending the time before the entire community can get back to normal, and putting people’s health at risk. The schools are closed and people are staying home for a reason. This is important and we need your compliance. It is especially important for parents to reinforce this message with their children, no matter what their age.

Board of Education meetings

During this period while we are unable to have in person Board meetings, we have been conducting them online. To listen to any meetings that have been conducted this way, please click on the link below to see a short video of how you can access any that you have been unable to attend. The recordings will generally be posted the following day.

How to access Board meeting recordings
