As mandated by Illinois State law, annual vision and hearing screening will be conducted at Edison School on Monday, December 10, 2018.

The following grade levels / students will be screened:

  • FIRST GRADE = HEARING only         

Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by and eye doctor. Your student is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months and that evaluation is on file at the school.  If a vision examination report is not on file at the school, then your student in the mandated group will be tested.

Any student that does not pass the initial vision and or hearing screening is automatically re-screened on Thursday December 20.  If the student does not pass the re-screen parents/guardians will be notified by mail.

GLASSES:  If your student already wears glasses, please have them bring their glasses to school on testing day.

If you have any questions regarding the above information, please contact me.


Thank you,

Flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The best way to prevent flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.  Please review the following  for further information on seasonal influenza.


Please join Principal Jim Pluskota for morning coffee in the multi-purpose room for conversations that have interest to you as parents of Edison students. Learn more about our school, curriculum, activities, events and our learning philosophy in these sessions. It is important that we each find time in our busy schedules to build relationships with each other that benefit our children in their learning environment. Mr. Pluskota will certainly have information prepared, but the true purpose of the coffee is to hear from you and listen you, your thoughts and concerns. Our first Coffee with the principal is scheduled for Thursday, September 27 from 8:30 - 9:30 in our Multi Purpose Room.  Other scheduled dates are Tuesdays February 5 and April 30.
