11/18/2020 Update: Returning to At-Home, Online Learning November 30

Posted by Madison Communications on 11/18/2020

Good afternoon Madison Families,

The safety of our students and staff continues to be our top priority. Last night, the Governing Board met to discuss a variety of learning options as our community continues to experience a rise in COVID-19 cases. After much consideration, the Governing Board made the difficult decision to return all students to at-home, online learning beginning Monday, November 30, with the exception of preschool and some special education programs.

This decision was not made lightly, but was made with the health and safety of our students and staff in mind. With the rise in cases, our schools face many challenges due to an increase in the number of students and staff quarantined.

We know that this decision will have an impact on our families. The District will provide On-site, Online Learning for families who qualify under the Governor’s Executive Order as well as provide special education support and in-person preschool. If you qualify, please click here to fill out the On-site, Online Learning form: www.madisonaz.org/onsiteonlinelearning

The District will continue to analyze the data provided by the County and State. We will keep our families informed as we move forward. We are committed to addressing the need to improve the at-home, online experience. Any modifications or changes will be communicated as soon as possible.

As we head into the holiday season, please continue to encourage your children and families to wear masks, practice physical distancing and frequently wash hands. It is imperative that we slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community so that we can safely resume in-person learning.

As always, we remain committed to providing a high-quality educational experience for all students. We thank you for your continued support.

Respectfully,

Madison School District
