  • Madison Family Update - March 29, 2020

    Tiếng Việt|
    March 29, 2020
     
    Hello Senators,
     
    Today we wanted to provide what new information we do have as of March 29th. 
     
    Our top priority is to support students and families in our community who need Food Support and Mental Health Support. If you have a concern or are hearing of concerns please send an email to askyles@pps.net 
    If it is an emergency please contact 911. 
     
    PPS also has set up a Google Form in multiple languages where families and students can send in questions. The form can be found https://www.pps.net/Page/15080  on the right-hand side of the site under Questions & Concerns?
    Please note that the updated information below is in red.
     
    1. Seniors and Graduation: We are still waiting for an announcement from Oregon Department of Education (ODE).  ODE will be making an announcement that will provide clarity for families and schools. Once this announcement is made we will have a clearer picture of how PPS and Madison will proceed. Questions regarding credit recovery for current seniors and all students are being worked on, but nothing is finalized yet.    
     
    2. School After Spring Break:  PPS sent a communication to families Click here for PPS Message. 
    Below is a quick breakdown of Phase II 
     
    Phase II:  Development of professional development, curriculum materials, and an action plan. MHS staff will be receiving training, support, & time to collaborate with individuals in their department and who also teach the same subjects. The goal is to support all staff in having a basic comfort level in facilitating home-based distance learning during the closure of our schools.
     
    By April 6th: The goal is for Madison staff to be able to provide home-based learning for students. The details of this plan are still being worked out and will be provided this week.
     
    Please know that the plan will be flexible and supportive in addressing the reality that in this unprecedented situation we have families in very different circumstances and that everyone of our situations could change. We need to ensure that families are being supported in basic needs, food, mental and physical health concerns first then we can focus on school. This new system will not penalize students and families who are unable to engage in the system for any reason.This new system will also support students and families if they need to disengage for any reason by providing easy reentry.     
     
    We are still problem solving how students receiving Special Education and/or English Language Learner services will be supported and will share an update by the end of the week.     
     
    PPS will continue to offer digital learning resources in core content areas and enrichment activities for pre-K through 12th grade as well as paper copies at food hubs over the closure. 
     
    Technology Distribution: If you completed the online form or turned in a paper copy of the form at a food Hub requesting a device and/or internet access PPS’s Technology department will contact you directly and via phone or email and let you know you pickup date, time, and location.There will be a drive through or walk up option. There will be a second wave of tech distribution. Once we have more information we will share.       
     
    3. Teacher Communications and Enrichment activities: We are working this week to finalize a schedule that will provide structure around staff communication with students while still offering flexibility for students and families. More information will be coming this week.   
     
    4.  Food Resources:  PPS Food Hubs will be open Monday 30th - 11 am - 1 pm Madison (at the Marshall Campus) will continue to serve as a food hub Monday-Friday. There is a drive through lane. 
    Scott and Rigler are schools providing the same services in NE Portland.
     
    Please check: https://www.pps.net/Page/15080 for the most updated information regarding Food Resources. The Oregon Food Bank will also be using Madison (Marshall Campus) as a distribution site. 
     
    5. School year being extended: There is no concrete information regarding the school year being extended at this time. Once I receive information directly from the Oregon Department of Education and  PPS District Office I will pass that along.  
     
    6. Prom: We have a new date reserved for Saturday, May 23rd. 
     
    7. School Events, Spring Sports and Activities:
    OSAA has created a OSAA COVID-19 Info site. Click here for more information. 
     All school events have been suspended until after April 28th. We will begin to work with staff in April to look at what events can be rescheduled and possible dates. We will also send out a list of events that unfortunately will not be rescheduled as we get closer to April 28th.   
     
    8. AP Exams: The College Board is finalizing the AP exam plan. Madison AP teachers have been tracking this and will be meeting as a team virtually to plan together how we will support our AP students. The details are still being worked out. Once there is a final decision Madison will work to ensure we are supporting our students. If you have a student who is in an AP class they should be using the online recourse to continue to prepare. If they have questions they should contact their teacher directly. Here is a link to The College Board website: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/

  • Athletics Update: 3/25/20

    Hello, Spring athletics families,
    We are following the guidelines set by both the Oregon School Activities Association and PPS regarding athletics practices and games in the coming weeks. The directions from the OSAA are (paraphrased):

    • OSAA SUSPENDS PRACTICES AND CONTESTS THROUGH APRIL 28.
    • Athletes and teams must heed the Governor’s “Stay Home. Save Lives.” Executive Order which remains in effect until terminated by the Governor.
    • The closure of schools and school properties through April 28 includes a prohibition on students/community members using school properties, athletic fields, and playgrounds.
    • We realize it is tempting for our high school athletes to have informal workouts together at parks, etc., but we discourage groups of students from getting together in alignment with local, state, and federal social distancing guidelines.
    • COVID-19 continues to live for days on some surfaces, including playground/athletic equipment and public seating areas. 

    Thank you,

    Madison Athletics

    updated 3/25/20 
  • AP exam resources:

    UPDATE: 3/13/20 

    During the extended closure, students can access online resources to continue their learning prior to the AP exams scheduled for May. PPS has not received any notification from the College Board regarding an adjusted test schedule at this time.

  • With early snow in at least one forecast...

    ...time for a reminder on how to stay updated on school closures!

    EspañolTiếng Việt中文РусскийSoomaali
    Image of icicles

     

    Meteorologist Rod Hill of KGW recently issued a winter forecast that projected 8 to 10 inches of snow, including possible early snow in November or December. If that turns out to be correct, that would be much earlier snow than last school year, when our first weather-caused disruption to the regular classroom schedule did not come until Feb. 5.

    Whatever the accuracy of the forecast, it seems a good time for a refresher for the Portland Public Schools community about how we let you know about school closures and delays caused by weather, or school emergencies or other special events. Here are the ways we get that information to you:

    School Messenger: You can get text alerts and auto-dialer calls on your cell phone with important news and updates. Text “Yes” or “Y” to 68453.

    Website: Our website, www.pps.net, will have immediate updates. Look for a yellow bar across the top of the home page when there is an urgent situation or weather-related closures.

    Twitter: We put out urgent communications on this social media platform. Simply follow our account to get updates.

    Facebook: We also put urgent communications on Facebook. “Like” our account to get posts into your timeline.

    Phone calls: Auto-dialer calls go to the primary numbers on the student registration form in all supported languages. Remember to update contact information with your school if your phone number changes.

    The decisions about weather-caused closures and delays are made after a PPS transportation crew personally inspects roads starting at 2:30 a.m., and consultations with a large group of experts and district leaders. Read more about the process in a PPS Pulse story from March.

  • Welcome 2019-2020 School Year

    Dear Madison Community,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Madison High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with a rich tradition of education and diversity! I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 19 years. During my tenure at Madison High School I have served in various roles that will make this transition smooth; as a social studies teacher, football coach, athletic director, dean, and most recently as Vice Principal.

    This year I am excited to introduce two new Vice Principals to the Admin team, Dr. Keylah Boyer and Travis Johnson. Both are experienced educators and administrators in Portland Public Schools. We have been meeting to ensure the best possible year in our new space at the Marshall Campus. 

    Along with Keylah, Travis, staff and teachers I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Madison by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader and work with you to ensure your student’s success.

    The 2019-20 school year will be exciting as we continue to work hard to build and strengthen our programming to provide students with opportunities for both depth and breadth of offerings. Please make sure to visit the website at https://www.pps.net/madison to see updates, check out our course guide, and get the latest information about what is going on at Madison.

    There are a few important event dates and times I would like to share with you before school starts. REMEMBER TO COME TO REGISTRATION AT THE MARSHALL CAMPUS IN THE CAFETERIA (see schedule below). This is the best opportunity to make sure that you are ready to go on the first day of school so don’t miss it!

    August 15: Registration: Sophomores and Seniors, 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM & 12:30 – 3:00 PM, closed for lunch.

    August 16: Registration:  Juniors, 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM & 12:30 – 3:00 PM, closed for lunch.

    AT REGISTRATION, YOU MUST:

    Return your STUDENT VERIFICATION FORM (enclosed) to receive your course schedule. Make any corrections and be sure it is SIGNED BY A PARENT.

    Take your photo for your FREE TriMet Bus Pass/Student ID (this is the ONLY TIME to get your bus pass before the start of school).

    YOU CAN ALSO:

    • Fill out an application for Free and Reduced Lunch benefits
    • Make any required payments for a yearbook, athletics participation, and your all-sports pass (cash, check, debit/credit)
    • Donate toward materials fees based on your course selections
    • Use your class schedule to pick up textbooks and get your locker assignment
    • Order a photo package with the enclosed Lifetouch form
    • Find information about athletics, SUN School, and other programs at Madison!

    Students that are using Trimet to get to the Marshall campus:  Trimet has announced a new electronic fare card (Hop Pass) for TriMet’s transit system. This year, all Portland Public High School TriMet passes will be printed on cards compatible with Trimet’s electronic contact system “Hop”. This new card system means that all high school student ID’s will be printed at registration on an electronic card and the student will tap the card reader upon boarding every bus and entering any MAX platform. Students will no longer be able to just show their ID card to board transit, they will have to tap their student ID prior to every boarding.

    INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL FEES/CONTRIBUTIONS:

    All athletes participating in sports must pay athletics participation fees ($200 per sport/$400 annual maximum or $35 per sport/ $70 annual maximum for free and reduced lunch students). This can be done at registration. You may also pre-purchase your yearbook ($35), or pay for an all-seasons sports pass ($25 for all home games). These are not tax-deductible fees.

    Additionally, students are asked for voluntary contributions of up to $25 toward general classroom supplies. Based on your class selections, you are also asked to contribute toward subjects that need additional support. These include art, science, engineering, computer science, and music. These contributions are needed to purchase the necessary resources for these courses. All contributions are tax-deductible (tax ID# 93-6000830) and we ask that you donate what you can. We can take payments by cash, check to Madison High School, or debit/credit card.

    ATHLETICS:

    Fall teams (soccer, volleyball, football, cross country) meet during the summer. Please see our Madison webpage at https://www.pps.net/madison for important registration information, forms, and summer workout times under the athletics tab. If your student wishes to participate in fall sports, tryouts begin August 19th. You must have a current sports physical to try out. The Athletics office reopens on Aug. 8. Email AD Tyler Kelleher at tkelleher@pps.net OR athletics secretary Kerry Graves at kgraves@pps.net if you have questions.


    Don’t forget!

    Please note that the bell schedule has slightly changed from the previous year.  All high schools will be on the same rotating A/B block schedule, with 4 class periods per day.  You’ll be able to pick up a calendar and bell schedule at registration and it will be posted on our website. You’ll notice that we have Extended Learning Time (ELT) for students the last hour of the day twice a week. This is an important time for students to receive support from teachers and complete homework. This is not considered an early release –all students are expected to be in school until 3:30pm every day. We anticipate having four two-hour early releases for professional development throughout the year. I will send reminders during the school year.  

    Please follow us on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/PPSMadisonHighSchool/.  I look forward to having our current students return and would like to extend a special welcome to any new students joining the Madison community.  See you all on August 15th and 16th and Freshmen on the 21st!  

    Sincerely,

    Adam Skyles

    Madison High School

    Dear PPS Families,

    As we go into the third week of our schools being closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, we are pleased to be able to offer meals to our students again, starting Monday, March 30. As we did during the first week of school suspension, we are making sacks of breakfast and lunch available for pickup outside of 15 of our schools. In addition, seven of these sites will now include once-a-week food pantry services for families that need groceries and other items that we previously offered at PPS school SUN sites.

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    After much urgent collaboration and planning, today leadership from Portland Public Schools and the Portland Association of Teachers shared with all of our PPS educators the outline for how teachers will begin working online next week. This outline represents our upcoming efforts to most effectively phase in supports for our students and teachers during the extended closure of our schools. We appreciate your patience while we, like other school districts, adapt our instructional delivery model virtually overnight. Next week we will share with you a detailed, multi-week plan for home-based learning for your students. Please stay tuned for that.

    As the coronavirus situation continues to develop, we are looking at a number of ways to deliver the best possible experiences for students during the extended break, and we want to make sure all of our students can remain connected to their peers, teachers, and schools and have regular access to learning opportunities and curriculum materials.
