Important Information

  • EDEP will not be responsible for your child’s cell phone. Cell phones must remain off and in your child’s backpack during EDEP. You are welcome to contact your child through the EDEP number, 352-955-7340. In the event a child must use his/her cell phone, to ensure the safety of all students it will be used under the direct supervision of the EDEP staff.
