With just more than a week left before the end of the school year, Madison Central Superintendent Joel Jorgenson reported to the school board Monday that there had been no positive COVID-19 cases within the district since May 3rd. Jorgenson said that overall, there have been 43 positive COVID-19 cases at Madison High School, 27 cases at Madison Elementary, and 24 cases at the Middle School. He said that 42 staff members in the district had tested positive throughout the course of the school year. Jorgenson said that the majority of the district’s staff received the COVID-19 vaccine in March and have not had a positive case reported in a staff member since that time.
Superintendent Jorgenson said the last day of classes will be May 20th, with students dismissed early that day. He thanked everyone for their work in making it through this less than normal school year.
Madison High School’s graduation is this Sunday at 2:00 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. Tickets are required to attend.
Jorgenson said that as far as a back to school plan for the 2021-22 school year, they will be reviewing that starting in July. He said that he’s hopeful that things will be somewhat back to normal for the next school year.
