Madison School's Mission Statement

    The mission of Madison School is to create a collaborative school culture, in which there is a partnership with parents and the community, to ensure that all students reach their highest potential academically, socially, emotionally and physically, in a positive and safe learning environment where student successes are celebrated.

    Collaboratively, we will focus on improved student learning and performance, based on evidence, while providing challenging student centered learning opportunities for all students which foster independence, employ problem solving and critical thinking and integrate real world connections. We will empower students to develop character, build confidence and inspire lifelong learners who take a vested interest in their learning.

    Hello Madison Families,

    One week down, and many exciting weeks ahead.  Thank you for being patient as we work to make our entry into the building smoother and smoother.  Please be reminded that the screening process is an important part of our mitigation strategies.  I would like to thank all of the parents who contributed to a quick entry this morning.

    The questionnaire is meant to be used as a tool to determine if your child is able to go to school.  Please ask your children if they have symptoms.  Please remember if your child is showing symptoms of COVID 19, please keep the child home and contact our office at 732-396-1070. 

      Please fill out the COVID Questionnaire by 8:00 am, this is essential to a smooth entry each morning and the safety of our students

    • Please send your child with a mask, and two backup masks
    • Please be on time to drop off and pick up your children, we will enter by 8:36 am, and let out no later than 2:53.  Any deviation from this norm results in difficulties for the staff and disrupts the child’s learning experience.
    • Continue to communicate with myself and Ms. Pires 
    • Children may need more than one water bottle during the day.  Please pack extra water.
    • The children are getting hungry for snacks.  If you would like your child to have a snack, please pack one.
    • If your child is missing an item from home please put the item in the vestibule with their name on it, we will deliver the item.
    • Please be reminded that visitors may not enter the building without an appointment, this is for the safety of the school community.
    • Continue to look at your Class Dojo messages... communication is key.

     

    The YMCA is offering before and aftercare on the Madison School Campus.  Please see their website to register:  Link: Before and After Care YMCA Link

     

    At present, the Breakfast Program is full, and we can not accept more students.  We will work to expand the program sometime next week. We will have yogurt available in the morning for all students who would like it.

    Posted by Patricia Volino-Reinoso on 8/27/2021

    Greetings to All!

     

    Teachers' assignments are visible in the Parent Portal. In order to view your child’s assignment please update your Annual Update Form.  Once your information has been updated, the schedule will be available. Schedules will be available in the Web version only (not the Parent/Student app). Please remember to be as thorough as possible with contact information. If you have any questions or need help, please email me at pvolino@rahway.net.

     

    School begins on September 8th.  Drop off begins at 8:26 am and the school day begins at 8:36 am.  Students will line up outside the door closest to their classroom for entry.  The specific  door assignment will be included in the welcome letter to follow next week.  

     

    Please be advised as of this time, masking is required for all students and adults on school campus, and the daily Covid Questionnaire completion will be required each day. This questionnaire will be available daily in the Parent Portal and needs to be completed each morning by 8:00 am. The school district continues to work with local health authorities to provide a healthy and safe learning environment for all students and families.

     

    Your child will line up with their class outside the door closest to their classroom.  The Madison Staff will work quickly to confirm receipt of the COVID Questionnaire, and do a visual assessment of each student for symptoms and then enter the building.  Once inside the building teachers will ask the children related health questions.  If any child demonstrates symptoms at that time, they will be seen by the nurse and the parent will be contacted. Working together to complete the daily COVID questionnaire and keeping children home when displaying any symptoms will help keep our school community safe, and entry into the building safe, quick, and orderly.

     

    Our Breakfast Club will begin on September 9th at 8:00 am.  A Sign Up Genius link will be forwarded to families on September 2nd. Please register your child to ensure placement into this program. Seating will be limited to ensure social distancing.  Please be reminded to fill out the COVID questionnaire prior to arriving at school.  

     

    The YMCA is offering before and after care on the Madison School Campus.  Please see their website to register:  Link: Before and After Care YMCA Link

     

    As our first day of school year 2021-2022 approaches students and staff may have increased questions, excitement, and anticipation.  Please let your children know that the Madison Staff is excited to welcome everyone back for in-person instruction, and are working diligently to ensure a happy, healthy and productive school year. I have seen some parents walking their children and picnicking on school grounds to start to get the children acclimated to the school setting.  I think that is a wonderful idea.  Please feel welcome to visit the grounds. Remember to Chalk our walks the week of September 5th to make everyone feel welcome!

     

    Enjoy your weekend,

     

    Ms. Volino-Reinoso
