Required Notice to Families


Free Breakfast for All Students Again!

Once again, all Madison students may eat breakfast for free with no paperwork or eligibility necessary. Providing access to healthy meals is an important component for student learning. Besides having a growling tummy, hunger can negatively affect academic success by disrupting ability to pay attention and control behavior or emotions. Both breakfast and lunch menus include daily specials, everyday choices, and fresh fruit and vegetables, many of which are locally grown. No paperwork is required to receive free breakfast.

New iPad Procedure

This year, all Madison students will have access to iPads in classes. However, students will not be bringing their iPad home. Instead, each classroom will have their own set of iPads, and students will be assigned an iPad in each class, to use for the whole year in that class. Students will not be carrying their iPads between classes; all iPads will remain in the classrooms. There may still be some sort of “technology use” form that students will have to sign…stay tuned!
