Due to Governor Holcomb’s request to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Madison County superintendents met this morning to discuss plans for school closures. Although there are no known cases of COVID-19 virus in the county, after consultation with the Madison County Health Department and the Madison County Task Force, all Madison County Schools have decided to close school from March 16, 2020 through April 3, 2020. We will use a combination of eLearning and waiver days granted by Governor Holcomb during this three-week period. Spring Break will continue to be April 6-10, 2020.
All buildings will be closed as of 6:00 PM on Friday, March 13, 2020. We will cancel all afterschool activities, sports practices, and field trips effective at 6 PM this evening, Friday March 13, 2020 until Monday, April 13, 2020.
This decision was not made lightly, and we recognize the hardship this may cause some families, students, and staff. Additional communication will follow regarding food services for days when school has been cancelled.
This is a rapidly evolving situation, and we will continue to provide updates as we receive more information or if new developments occur.
Bobby Fields, Superintendent
