Superintendent's Message

March 13, 2020

Dear MDPS Families and Staff,

These are challenging times for Madison District Public Schools, our country, and our world. Like all districts in Michigan, we are complying with the Governor's directive to close all schools to students as of Monday, March 16, 2020. Madison District Public Schools will resume school on Monday, April 13, after our scheduled spring break.

The closure is to help prevent the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is a time of rapidly changing information, and we are committed to regular communication. We appreciate your continued attention to the information we are able to deliver to you. Please see the district website (www.madisondistrict.org) and the Coronavirus link on our district homepage for the most up-to-date information.

First and foremost, we are here to help each other. We have fielded inquiries from staff and families about a variety of situations. Please know that we continue to collaborate with law enforcement, health officials, and other individuals and organizations.

We want to assist our families with the challenges this school closure will bring. Some of the questions you may have are included in the topics below.  If not, please feel free to email the building administrator of your child’s school. Although our buildings are closed, our administrators and staff will be available via email.

Distance Learning for MDPS Students:
Our teachers and administrators are planning distance learning opportunities for our students during this extended closure. Although nothing can replace effective classroom instruction, we are doing our best to keep our students engaged in content. Each school has developed a plan for delivering academic content to each student in the district. Specific plans will be communicated to families by each building administrator, and information will be posted on each of the school’s websites. As this is a work in progress, please check back on Monday, March 16, 2020 for the most updated distance learning information.
