District News

Port Edwards Significantly Exceeds Expectations on District and School Report Cards Issued by the Department of Public Instruction

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction issued the District and School Report Cards on November 17 and the results are very promising for the Port Edwards School District.  As a district, Port Edwards received the designation of Significantly Exceeds Expectations.  Additionally, the Port Edwards Elementary and John Edwards Middle School also received the same designation on the school level report cards.  John Edwards High School received an Alternate Rating of Satisfactory Progress.  The reason for JEHS being issued an Alternate Rating is due to the small sample size.  Due to there being less than 20 students last year in grade 11, the normal report card is not issued.  The actual report cards and a link to the DPI Report Card website are included with this article.

Incident from December 7, 2016

Dear Parents,

This letter is to inform you that this afternoon, there was an incident at the middle/high school requiring a soft lockdown. It was reported that a student had a gun in the school. After thorough investigation by administration, staff, and law enforcement, it was determined that there was no gun and students were allowed to continue with their day.

Our school is committed to the safety and education of all our students. We also want to clearly communicate with parents about safety issues when they arise. Thank you for your understanding as we work together to keep our school safe.
