  • Summer Registration Resources & Food Pantry Updates

    SUMMER REGISTRATION RESOURCES

    Each summer the Enrollment and Transfer Center completes about 300 new student registrations during the weeks when schools are closed.  Here are some questions and answers about how this work will happen this year, with the onset of summer registration.  This is a live document, and we will continue to update as new questions and procedures arise.

    Q:  Can parents complete online registration over the summer?
    Yes, if an online registration was started at the neighborhood school but not finished due to questions or missing documents, ETC can work with the family to complete the process.  Please leave notes in the online registration file, so we can pick up where you left off, and pay special attention to any concerns or questions you have.  

    Q:  Can parents come to the ETC in person?
    As of this moment there is no plan for public entry to BESC.  Parents who need to submit documents can use regular mail or e-mail.  We can also arrange google meetings to view and verify proof of age documentation. 

    Q:  What about families who complete paper registration forms?
    Families can pick up paper registration packets at seven food pantry sites this summer.  The packets include stamped envelopes addressed to the Enrollment and Transfer Center.  ETC staff will enter the information into Synergy, and leave notes for any registrations that are pending when you return.

    Q:  Is the ETC planning to finalize ALL pending online registrations this summer?
    ETC will work with any family who seeks our assistance, but we will not be reaching out to other families in your pending queue.  Families can wait for your return in August, if they wish to work with you directly.  

    Q:  When will K-5 lottery results be reflected in Synergy?
    A file will be sent to Synergy this month, but the results will not be visible until after the New Year Rollover occurs in July.  Due to office closures and other unforeseen delays we were not able to complete the file before the end of the school year.  

    Q:  What about students approved for transfer in the lottery who are registered at their neighborhood schools?
    These students will be rolled over to their correct schools as part of NYR.  Afterwards, the standard Synergy process will continue:  Upon notification of a transfer the current or neighborhood school should no-show the student and alert the transfer school to pick up the enrollment.

    Q:  What if a family tells us they want their child to attend the neighborhood school instead of a transfer school?
    If the transfer school is private, alternative, charter or home-based, including online options, please register the student right away.  If the transfer school is another PPS neighborhood or focus option program, including dual language immersion, please have the family complete a petition transfer request right away.  Due to the unprecedented instability caused by the pandemic, we will do our best to rapidly approve transfers back to neighborhood schools.  Note that we reserve the right to deny transfers between PPS schools due to extremely large class sizes.  However, new resident students coming from other types of schools must be admitted to their neighborhood schools.

  • Order a 2020 yearbook!

     Senators, still want to order a 2020 yearbook? Due to the early school closure, our Yearbook staff was unable to sell surplus yearbooks in person. They depend on the sale of every yearbook to cover printing costs, so please order yours while they last - just use this handy QR code!! Yearbooks will be available for pickup after mid-July.

  • Help support our Senior Diploma Celebration!

    Madison Families,
    We are planning to celebrate the graduating class of 2020 in a socially distanced event on June 10, but have had to make many changes in our plans to meet the health and safety requirements of our district. To try to give our seniors special recognition, we still want to announce their names, have decorations, and present students with mementos of their graduation year. But we need your help for these added and unexpected expenses. If you are able, please make a small donation to our Class of 2020 Graduation Celebration Fundraiser through Donors Choose. Thank you for your support!

    Dear Madison Family,

    Madison is a Community that Respects each other and Education through Equity in order to honor and empower our Diverse population. This spring has been challenging due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 which has affected all of us. More recently we have witnessed the acts of violence and misuse of power that took the lives of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. 

    At Madison, we are outraged by this systemic abuse towards members of the African American community. Whatever you are feeling right now -  overwhelmed, mourning, afraid, full of despair, and looking for hope and answers - it is a real response. We believe that you are valuable, important, and brilliant.  We stand in solidarity with African American students, families, and staff while remaining committed to diversity and respect.

    We are aware that this is more than a moment in time. We acknowledge that this is an ongoing process as we seek to dismantle systematic racism.

    We acknowledge that racism is ever present in America and the impacts continue to be deadly. Let’s consider how we can collectively work together to create cross-racial collaboration to ensure that the tragedies do not continue again and again. As we continue to process these events, Madison staff is here to provide support to process the impact of these repeated tragic events. Please feel free to reach out to Madison staff for support.

  • Mosaic: the Literary Arts Magazine

    It's here! Click to view Madison's 15th annual literary arts magazine, Mosaic, now in an electronic format (with hopes it will eventually be printed). 
    As usual, it is a mix of the political, the romantic, the fantastic, and a telling glimpse into the hearts and minds of our students. As this year's subtitle suggests, the submissions are also a glimpse into the pre-pandemic past. This year, there are 53 young writers and artists represented.

  • COVID Relief for Madison Families:

    If you are able, please support this fundraiser organized by Madison teacher Elicia Blackford. 100% of funds from this campaign will go to support Madison High School students and families with basic needs like fresh fruits and vegetables and other necessary food, and emergency financial needs. Priority will be given to immigrant and refugee families and families who cannot access government aid funding.
    We will get through this together!
