Parent-Teacher Conferences on the Madison High School homepage: http://www.pps.k12.or.us/schools/madison/
also be available at the school entrance during conference times.
Conferences are earlier this year than in the past. The schedule is as follows:
8:00-3:30pm – Regular school day, classes are in session
5:00-8:00pm – Parent/teacher conferences in the cafeteria and library
8:30-11:30am – Morning conferences in teachers’ classrooms
12:30-3:30pm – Afternoon conferences in teachers’ classrooms
5:00-7:30pm – Evening conferences in the cafeteria and library
No school for students or staff
When you come in the main entrance, please sign in and get the information that you need to find the teachers that you need to speak with. Please note that teachers tend to have more availability during the day. In the evening we put teachers in a couple of places because it is busier and we don’t want you to have to run back and forth between classrooms to find a teacher that is available. Especially in the evening, you may have to wait a few minutes. We’ll try to make it as easy and smooth as possible.
A Word From Principal Callin
To the Madison Community,
Unfortunately at this time, the Madison High School Varsity Football team will no longer compete in the Fall 2014 season. Our Freshman/Sophomore team will continue to play in our next two games and finish their Fall 2014 season.
After looking over the injury reports from the Varsity team, with the student safety in mind, we feel it is best to discontinue play at the Varsity level. We do not feel it is appropriate or safe to bring Freshmen and Sophomore players to compete at the Varsity level.
Thank you for your continued support for Madison football and athletics. Madison looks forward to offering a full athletic program next year.
Petra Callin, Principal
