Edgerton Elementary
Student Drop Off and Pick Up Lane
For the safety of all students, please use the designated drop off / pick up lane when transporting your children to and from school. Enter using the driveway on Edgerton Avenue. The main parking lot directly north of the building should only be used if you are going to park your car and walk your child to or from the playground area. This area should not be used as a drop off / pick up location. Also, students should not arrive at school before 8:20 AM as there is no supervision before that time. Thanks for your cooperation as we make student safety our top priority.

It’s that easy! Click here to learn more. We appreciate your support of this program. It’s an easy way to earn money for our school! If you have any clipped box tops at home, please send those in to school. We can still submit them.
