Dear Madison families,
We want you to know that there was a small fire in a student bathroom this afternoon. We evacuated the building quickly and everyone was safe. Students are back in class now.
Our custodian was able to put out the fire. When firefighters arrived they inspected and ensured it was fully extinguished and everything was safe. The fire department set up fans to remove the smoke from the building.
We have now returned to the building and are getting back to our normal school day.
We regularly drill for evacuations, and our practice has paid off—the evacuation went very quickly and smoothly. I am proud of our students and staff for their smooth response to the unexpected alarm.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire. If your student has any information, please contact the Madison office at 541-790-4300 and ask to talk with me or Assistant Principal Teresa Martindale.
