Forms through Genesis
All forms for the school year need to be updated and/or submitted through the Genesis Parent Portal. If you have not yet completed these updates and consent forms, please do so as soon as possible. The electronic method of form submission replaces the packet of paper forms that have previously been sent home at the beginning of the school year.
With the implementation of the Scholastic Student Athlete Safety Act, all students are required by law to complete the N.J. Department of Education Health History Questionnaire and Physical Evaluation Form in order to participate in inter-scholastic sports and intramurals. While students participating in middle school sports teams have always needed a physical, the law now requires physicals for participation in intramurals. Physicals can be done by the school physician or your private health care provider. However, only the N.J. Department of Education athletic forms will be accepted. Paper copies are available in our main office and are available on our school website. Please note that in addition to athletic teams and intramural participation, Zone students who participate in recreation/sports activities in the after school program will also be required to have a physical. Please click on the above link for the forms.
Edgar Middle School uses a computerized POS (point of sale) system in the school cafeteria. Instead of paying cash for your child’s lunch or snacks, you may deposit checks into your child’s debit account! Just like EZ Pass on the NJ Turnpike, this system reduces time-consuming cash transactions, and will make our lunch lines move much faster. Note that while “good old fashioned cash” will still be accepted in the cafeteria, our hope is that many parents will appreciate the ease and convenience of pre-paying for their child’s lunch. For your additional convenience, we also have an internet-based payment system, which allows you the option of paying for your child’s lunch on-line, via credit card. This service also allows you to receive automated emails detailing your child’s account balance, which items they purchased for lunch, and if their balance is low. Think about it…no more lost lunch money…no more forgotten lunch money…no more “losing the change” to the $10 or $20 bill…your prepaid funds will be held safely in trust by the school until they are used to purchase healthy meals in our cafeteria. For more information on the internet-based payment system, please click the link above.

If you would like to put money on account for your child, please make checks payable to Metuchen Board of Education Cafeteria Fund. The payment will be posted to your child’s account. Payments will be accepted in as large or small a $ amount as you feel is convenient for you.

Edgar Middle School is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students. The Board of Education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation, or bullying of a pupil. A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for pupils to learn and achieve high academic standards. Harassment, intimidation, or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a pupil’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its pupils in a safe and disciplined environment.
