Important Information
Parents – as a reminder, we now have the ability to have you excuse your student(s) through an online system. You no longer need to call or send in notes for student absences!

Attendance - Online Procedure to  Report an Absenc e

Our goal is to move all student attendance request s for
Edina High School to the   online system .  

For the 2019-2020 school year, families will have the option to use the   online system   or call the attendance line.

Please note – once parents have submitted the absence(s) online, there is NO need to follow up with a phone call or note. However, if you are looking to change an attendance record from previously, please call the attendance line as the online system is unable to change previous dates. The attendance line number is (952) 848-3803.

If you are unable to access the parent portal, please email    parentportal@edinaschools.org   for your login information. 

Parents/Guardians are the only people who can excuse students.

Edina Public Schools, the Rotary Club of Edina and the
Edina Education Fund are excited to launch a new program:

Edina Rotary Global Scholars!

Students complete an educational pathway and become a
Global Scholar upon graduation.

Questions can answered by the
Program Coordinator, lindsey.smaka@edinaschools.org .
Edina Public Schools created the Meal Fund to ease the
burden of school meal debt on families in a time of crisis, such as employment instability, illness, death or food insecurity.
 
In Edina, 8.7 percent of EPS students qualify for free or reduced
cost meals. 28 percent of households are cost burdened, which
means cost of living outpaces income ( MN Compass ).

We can work together to support our families and our community.
The number of vulnerable families is significantly higher
than reported. These students are one crisis away from food
insecurity resulting in school meal debt.

The Meal Fund is a sustainable community-sourced funding solution.
