MADISON, NJ - At Madison’s Board of Ed Meeting held on Tuesday, July 28th, Superintendent Mark Schwartz announced the reopening plans for Madison Schools. While there is no perfect solution, Mr. Schwartz believes the current plan is the best way to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of students and faculty while moving schools forward readily and efficiently.

In Phase 1, students will be divided into two groups, Maroon and Gold.  These groups will rotate between in-person and remote learning days with early dismissal. To provide families with predictability and structure, these days will be fixed. Wednesday will be a remote learning day for both groups to allow teachers to concentrate their efforts in that area. Group assignments are expected to be posted by Friday, August 14th.

All families have the option to request full-time remote learning for their children. At any time, students can switch from in-person to remote learning and vice-versa.

Phase 2 will see students in school every day with an early dismissal. Phase 3 will see students in school every day for the full day. If health data is consistently positive, schools may transition between phases every 1-2 months. Ideally, Phase 2 will begin by either October or November and Phase 3 will start in January.

Further reopening updates will be provided on August 14th and August 18th
