We will discuss student updates, important dates to remember, the 2022 8th Grade College & University Trip, along with kicking off the Bobo's Pizza Fundraiser. See you there!
Parents: Per the district office, parents and community members are not allowed in the school building during the school day. This includes Pre-K through 5th grade. If you need assistance, please call the school or use the buzzer and intercom in the front of the building. Thank you!
Madison Families, The school year is off to a great start! We want to thank you for partnering with us to educate your students and keeping everyone in school buildings safe. There are a couple of items we wanted to bring to your attention. 1. In the interest of safety patents and community members are not allowed in the school building during the school day. This applies to Pre-k through 12th grade. We are working hard to limit exposure to COVID-19 and maintain a healthy environment. If you need assistance please call the school or use the buzzer and intercom located at each school building. 2. The policy of the district is that student cell phones are to be off and away. Students should not have their phones turned on during class time as it interferes with the learning process. Please do not call, text, or message your student during the school day, students caught using their phones in violation of school policy will be subject to disciplinary action. If you need to contact your child during the school day please contact the school office. 3. It has been brought to our attention that cars often pass our school busses while picking up or dropping off students. When a school bus is stopped and has its stop sign out all traffic is required by law to stop. This is so that students may safely enter and exit the bus. Individuals who violate this law will have their license plate number reported to the police. The last year has been full of changes and we are doing our best to return to a normal school routine as much as possible. We appreciate your help in making sure all students have a positive experience and an awesome year.
Parents: We will have a half-day this Friday, September 24. Kindergarten through 5th grade students will be let out of school at 10:30am. Our Pre-K students will not be in attendance the entire day. Please mark your calendars. Have a great evening!
Madison Family, You should have received information about the SHIELD COVID testing. We hope you will choose to opt your student into this voluntary testing program. Testing is an opportunity to protect students and staff in the district. Please return your opt-in forms as soon as possible.
Madison Family, The Madison School District will be offering a COVID-19 vaccination clinic tomorrow, September 21st in the Sr. High gym from 9:00-3:00. This clinic is for anyone age 12 and up. An adult will need to accompany any child under the age of 18.
Parents: We are looking forward to seeing you this evening for our "Open House." Everyone entering the building must have their temperature checked and be wearing a mask. We appreciate you stopping by to meet with the teachers and to see what your child does daily. See you soon!
Madison Family, The Madison School district will be implementing weekly COVID-19 testing to help protect students and staff. This testing is in partnership with the University of Illinois and is called SHIELD testing. This test is much easier as it only involves collection of saliva rather than the traditional nasal swab. Results of the testing are reported in 24 hours and families will have access to your students' test results through a secure website. Testing is an important tool in helping manage COVID-19 so schools can remain open to educate our students. You will be receiving information about the SHIELD testing along with a form to sign up for weekly testing. Please complete the form and return to your student’s school building. They will then be added to the testing roster. Testing is tentatively scheduled to begin the last week of September.
Parents, don't forget "Open House" at Bernard Long Elementary this Wednesday, September 15. Everyone has been given a specific time to come into the building to avoid having large crowds. Your child's teacher has scheduled a time for you to visit our "Open House." This time should have been communicated to you. Please contact the teacher if you don't have your time or if a better time would work for you. Looking forward to meeting you on Wednesday. Have a good evening!
Parents, I just want to remind you of the "Open House" on Wednesday, September 15 at Bernard Long Elementary School. You will get the chance to meet your child's teacher and see what they do each day. You will also be given information on what you can do outside of school to help your child be more successful. Please plan to attend. The time is from 5-7pm, however, your child's teacher will send you an invite along with a specific time for you to come to the building to avoid having large crowds in your child's classroom. Everyone entering the building must have on a face mask. I look forward to meeting you next week. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions. Thanks.
Madison Family, We would like to remind you that if your student is showing any COVID-19 symptoms please do not send them to school. Symptoms include; cough, nasal congestion, fever, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, headache or body aches. If your student has any of these symptoms we strongly encourage you to get them tested before sending them back to school. We realize this is inconvenient but to maintain a safe environment for students and staff we must take every precaution possible. Your cooperation will help us keep our schools open all year. Thank you

Fuel Your Bodies So You Can Fuel Your Minds!!!!!!!
Good Evening Parents! Our students are dismissed from class at 1:55pm daily to be picked up from school or to walk home. Our bus students are also released at 1:55pm to board their bus to go home. If your child's transportation will need to change, please call the school to talk with a secretary by 1:00pm. This allows us enough time to get this information to your child's teacher and avoids any delays with pick up. Thank you for your cooperation.
Good afternoon Bernard Long parents! This is your new principal Mr. Marshall. We have exactly 7 days before we start school. Hope your summer has been fantastic! We plan to hit the ground running toward progression and improvement. I look forward to meeting you and working with your child. If you should have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at Bernard Long Elementary School. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
As the 2021-2022 school year is quickly approaching, here is a quick reminder about the importance of daily, on time student attendance. Attendance at school is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It’s difficult for the teacher and the class to build their skills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent. The attached image shows the effects of absenteeism on your child’s educational success. We look forward to educating your child each and every single day.
