Dear Madison Community,
The 2020-2021 school year has come to a close. While it had a few bumps in the road with COVID-19, we made it through the year. The month of May was a time for celebration for our students. We enjoyed prom, numerous awards programs, performances, 5th grade Olympics, the Eighth Grade Formal and graduation at Captain’s Stadium. It felt good to have some normalcy in this chaotic year.
As we look to next year, our plan is to be in school in-person five days a week. We will not be offering a virtual option next year with our staff, but we will be partnering with the Educational Service Center of the Western Reserve for any virtual offerings. We will be sending out information under a separate email in June regarding those options for those who are interested.
I know another concern many families have is implementation of the COVID-19 protocols, in particular face masks. We are working on the particulars regarding face masks for summer programming and next year with the Lake County General Health District. It is our hope that the pandemic is under control well enough to not require masks next school year. However, any and all the requirements are subject to where we are with the virus in August.
Thank you again for all you have done to support our staff this past year. I have said it numerous times, but it is worth repeating--our staff put in countless hours to provide the best education for our students during this pandemic, and they did an outstanding job. I appreciate all their extra effort this year.
Please continue to look for updates throughout the summer, as I promise to keep you informed as information becomes available. Have a wonderful start to summer! We remain #MadisonStrong.
