The student day is 8:30AM –3:00PM. If students arrive after 8:30AM or leave before 2:50PM, an adult must check in at the office. Students may not enter the building prior to 7:50AM.

  • An arrival between 8:30 and 9:00 will be marked as a tardy.
  • An arrival between 9:00 and 1:00 will be marked as ½ day absent.
  • Leaving between 10:00 AM 2:00 will be marked as ½ day absent.
  • Leaving between 2:00 and 3:00 will be marked as an early dismissal.


NOTE: The State of Ohio expects student attendance to be at 93%. Parents of students with a rate below 90% will be notified. If the problem continues, appropriate agencies will be notified and the child may be removed from school. According to State law, if a student misses 105 or more consecutive hours of learning, he or she will be automatically withdrawn from the school.

If a student must be absent, the parent must contact the school before 9:00AM. This is consistent with state law regarding missing children. A written note must be sent with the child when he or she returns to school.



Dismissal at the end of the day.

If you are picking your child up after school, please come to the door at the rear of the 4th/5th grade building, off of Park Street. Park Street is off of Union Street.



Tardiness Policy

(August 1, 2011)

The Edge Academy emphasizes the importance of students prompt arrival at school each day. Tardiness is the absence of a student in the classroom at the time the regularly scheduled session begins (8:30 a.m.), provided that the student is in attendance before the close of the session.  It is a reasonable expectation that in order for a learning activity to exist, each student must arrive to class on time (punctually).  A student, who is tardy to class, not only places his/her own learning in jeopardy, but also interrupts the learning of other students.  3 Unexcused tardies: a written notice will be sent home to the parent.

  1. 6 Unexcused tardies: (within a 9 week period) will warrant a phone call from an administrator to the parent.
  2. 9 Unexcused tardies: will count as 1 day of absence (15 days of absence will meet the Summit County Truant level). Papers will be submitted to the Juvenile Courts for “Failure to send the child to school”.

With this policy in place, please give us your strongest effort to get students to school by 8:30 a.m. Thank you for your attention to this matter and we look forward to improving the amount of time in class for every child.
