Welcome To Edwin Forrest School

Our Mission
Edwin Forrest Elementary School will foster achievement, academics, and future leaders. We allow for diversities and unique learning styles that enable children to become lifelong learners through the use of critical thinking, problem solving, and real life application.

What’s Happening Now:

Parents, Guardians and Families,

The new “Parent Portal” is now available for you. If you want to keep updated on your child’s academics then please sign up with an email account. Please click here to get to the portal page.

Kindergarten registration is open. If your child will be five years old before September 1, 2019 register him or her today.  For more information click here.

NEW POLICY: There has been a change to the school schedule.  The first day of school for students in all grades PreK-6 is September 3, 2019. Please mark your calendar as a reminder of this change. There has also been a change to the bell schedule and admission proceduresSchool now starts at 8:26 am. Gates open at 8:15 am so that older students can get breakfast. Students in grades 4th, 5th and 6th will no longer eat breakfast in their classrooms.  Breakfast will only be served in the lunchroom.

NEW POLICY: Please do not let your child bring any form of slime to school. It will be thrown in the trash if found by any adult in the building. The slime gets all over and causes problems in class.
