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.

SBNC nominates two candidates

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  Please see the below announcement from the SBNC regarding this year’s candidates for the Board of Education.

 

First, I hope that you and your families are healthy and safe.

This evening, the Edgemont School Board Nominating Committee recommended Monica Sganga and Jennifer DeMarrais to fill the two impending vacancies on the Board of Education. I am happy that we were able to stay on schedule and interview the candidates via a Zoom video meeting.

The SBNC had the good fortune of having four very strong nominees this year. Although Nareen Jabbour and Rebecca Ascher were not nominated, the Committee was very impressed with both Nareen and Rebecca during the evaluation process and hope that they will seek nomination to the Board of Education in the future.

This year, we will hosting our Candidates’ Forum at the Edgemont Community Council’s annual meeting on April 22nd, 2020 in the Greenville School cafeteria.

I am extremely thankful for having had the privilege of being the Chair of a School Board Nominating Committee consisting of 15 members — representing seven civic associations and the Edgemont Community Council — who served with extreme thoughtfulness and dedication throughout the nomination and recommendation process.

These are complex times and I appreciate everyone’s commitment to our community. What is most important is that we all remain healthy and safe taking care of each other and our community.

Thank you and regards,

Andrea K. Weiss
