We need your help madison to keep kids in the classroom

If you (or someone you know) are interested in helping keep Madison schools open by serving in one of these important roles, we encourage you to visit the MMSD Community Strong website. There, you will be able to submit required information in a streamlined process, and learn additional details. It is important to note, volunteers and applicants must provide evidence of COVID vaccination and, depending on position, may be subject to a background check.

Health and Safety Information

As we renew our focus on safety protocols, we want to inform you of two important updates to our layered risk mitigation strategy. These updates come after close consultation with our medical advisory team, and after consideration of revised guidelines for schools from PHMDC, DHS, and the CDC.

Testing helps reduce community spread and keeps schools operating safely. Testing individuals who are symptomatic or close contacts helps enable rapid detection of cases in the school community and reduce or prevent school outbreaks. LIST OF SITES

Yesterday (Jan. 6), we communicated our decision to return to in-person learning, after taking a necessary pause. This communication referenced the tireless work our teachers, principals, administrators, and other staff have been doing during this time to ensure our return is safe and sustainable. The following is additional information for you to consider in preparation for your student’s return.

Return to In-Person Learning

MMSD will return to in-person learning on Monday, January 10, at all grade levels. Please note, our virtual programs (MVE and Madison Promise) will continue meeting online along with 4K returning to their normal schedule.

Thank you to Jerome Flowers, Dean of Students at Whitehorse, for connecting with students and making even a very reserved 6th grader smile on a regular basis! You help students feel seen and connected to the school community, and I really value that as a parent!

Sending a HUGE shoutout to Crystal Cone in Material Handling. So grateful that she was able to safely package and send some really big but necessary mobility equipment to a student who had moved to another state. Thanks to her work the student will continue to make progress towards her goals!
