First, I wanted to remind you that our Return to Learn plan has been posted on our website. I have also attached it to this email for your convenience. Please note that all items in the plan are subject to change as conditions with the virus change.
A key piece of the plan is that we are expecting to return to school normally. For those who want another option, please contact my administrative assistant, firstname.lastname@example.org, after July 20, 2021. We are partnering with the Educational Service Center of the Western Reserve for our online educational options this year. The best part of this partnership is that your student remains a Madison student and can participate in activities within the district.
Second, I’d like to invite you and your family to an important community event: Mr. Fisher’s Retirement Ice Cream Social. Fish, as he is known by many, does not like the limelight; for him, it has always been about celebrating his students. But after 25 years of service to the district and community, it’s time for us to celebrate him! The Ice Cream Social is Jul 27, 2021 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at Madison High School. Come enjoy some ice cream and help us celebrate Fish, who has done so much for so many!
Third, I would like to share several opportunities in our community. Marcus Horton, a Madison Graduate, is working in collaboration with the Backpack Fund, an nonprofit organization, that is raising money to provide backpacks and supplies for students in need in Madison. If you are interested in donating or helping with this project, please go to for more information go to www.thebackpackfundohio.com/donate. The second opportunity is with the YMCA. As a community partner, they are once again planning to offer latchkey in our buildings – but in order to do so, they need staff. They also have 22 slots available for students in the afterschool program offered at the YMCA. If you are interested in working with the YMCA in the latchkey program or having your child attend afterschool care at the YMCA, please contact at Abby March at 440-428-5125.
I will be sending out information at the beginning of August regarding the start of school. The calendar will be mailed to all homes in Madison the week of August 1. Until then, enjoy your summer, and I hope to see you at the Ice Cream Social.
