From the Director
It looks like we are drying out and will get to enjoy a bit of sunshine! The Ski Club can finally head up to the mountain and enjoy the snow without gale force winds! Hopefully this will give you all a chance to get out and enjoy the benefits of living in the Rogue Valley.
However, should the ill winds blow again…
SEVERE WEATHER PROCEDURES
Madrone Trail follows the decisions made by the Medford School District regarding severe weather procedures. Please refer to social media or media announcements for guidance from MSD.
In the event school needs to be delayed, canceled, or released early (due to an unexpected weather event occurring during school hours), the following decisions are possible:
Normal school hours – snow routes: some bus routes in higher elevations change due to snow or slick road conditions. Snow routes are posted ahead of time at: www.medford.k12.or.us/snow
Cancellation: School and district are closed.
Two-hour delayed start – regular routes OR snow routes: School begins two hours after regularly scheduled start time. Regular bus routes or snow routes may run, depending on road conditions.
Releasing school early – normal routes OR snow routes: School is released early due to hazardous road conditions. Buses may run regular routes or snow routes, depending on road conditions.
We have permits in hand! We can finally continue the final stages of our project, which includes installation of fiber optic lines for the internet, low voltage for the fire alarm system, electrical connection, and a ramp/landing for building access.
CHANGE IN AFTER SCHOOL PLANS
Lately we have had some parents calling the office to change after school pick up plans at the last minute. After 3:00 pm, Sherrie is busy with the bus kids and may not be able to get the message to your child in time. Please call the office no later than 2:30 pm to ensure that your child and staff are all up to date about your child's after school plans.
AUCTION - FEBRUARY 25
As you will see further down the page, our annual auction is scheduled for February 25. I would encourage you to attend this fun event, and reach out to your friends and acquaintances and solicit their involvement. We have several upcoming projects and a healthy fundraiser would go a long way towards their completion.
COFFEE WITH ADMINISTRATION
I will be making myself available each week after our assembly or play for a “Coffee with the Administration” discussion. This will be an informal get together where you are free to ask questions, raise concerns, share ideas and provide me the opportunity to seek feedback from you. So I invite you to stay for a few minutes after each assembly and sample Chef Evan’s special blend while we chat!
Have a wonderful long weekend,
