Principal's Message

Elias Ashton at his desk
Dear Madison Families,
 
We are a little over halfway through our summer break.  As the 2020-2021 school approaches, I am sure you all have many questions and concerns about what the school year will look like.  Currently, the Coos Bay School district is offering an online only option and a hybrid option which incorporates 3 hours a day of in-person instruction, Monday-Thursday, and online supplemental work.  Throughout the next month, I will provide weekly updates through the Madison Elementary Facebook page and my Google site, Principal's Google Site.  If you are not on our Facebook page, please request to be added.  We have a lot of great information on the page.
 
In regards to the school options, we are asking that parents make a decision by August 17.  I will try to get as much information to families as possible to help make the best decision for your family.  Our hybrid model involves AM/PM cohorts and the information about what cohort your child is placed is available on the school district webpage.  Circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus are rapidly changing daily, so the specifics about expectations. protocols/procedures, and details are evolving.  Please stay tuned for future updates and feel free to call me starting Monday, July 27, with questions.
 
Sincerely,
Mr. Ashton
Principal
