A Message from the Principal.
Our Mission: We are Edward E. Taylor Elementary School, a leader in transforming lives through education, empowering all students to achieve their potential and dreams.
All of us at Edward E. Taylor Elementary School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. This year is going to be "Great" as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and builds relationships.
As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-staff, students, and parents-are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.

Notification to Parents of Elementary Level Students Requesting Transfers from the Virtual School Program to the Phase-in (Hybrid) Model or from the Phase-in Model to the Virtual School Program
More than 2300 requests for transfers into or out of the Virtual School Program were received by the deadline of October 19. Our goal is to accommodate as many of your requests as possible with the least amount of disruption to learning. As has been stated on numerous occasions, however, staffing and spacing must be considered in making moves of this magnitude.
Additionally, soon as we have determined which transfers can be accommodated based on spacing and staffing, all affected students must be moved within PowerSchool. Finally, coordination with the Offices of Transportation and Nutrition Services must be completed to ensure transportation routes and meal prep/meal pickup plans are accurate. All of this behind-the-scenes work takes time.
Parents will be notified on or before November 4 as to whether their request for transfer has been approved.
Until the transfer process has been completed, parents who requested transfers should note the following:
If you have questions, please contact your child’s principal.
