  • January 2017                    Principal’s Message

    Dear Mustang Families,

    Happy New Year and welcome back to the beginning of a great 2017!

    Our New Year’s Resolution is to teach Empathy and Kindness to every student.  To support us in this effort we have two programs that are designed to support schools and teachers. kidsforpeaceglobal.org is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to empower students to change the world through acts of kindness.

    James Madison will be working with Kids for Peace to promote and encourage the Great Kindness Challenge 2017.  The Peaceable Kingdom program is scheduled to visit our school during The Great Kindness Challenge week!  They will be hosting cooperative games during recess, visiting classrooms and teaching cooperative games.  Madison will also be hosting an assembly with singer song writer Meredith O'Connor who has spoken at schools around the world this past year and is in an anti-bully advocate.  We are excited to host this assembly during our focus on kindness month.  Remember our guiding principles at Madison:  

    BE KIND          BE SAFE         BE YOUR BEST

    Nurse News

    It’s that time of year for colds and flu.  Amy Taxdahl, our school nurse, has provided some important reminders about when to keep your child home from school if they are not feeling well.  These recommendations are put together by the Alameda County Public Health Department, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Public Health Association.

    • Fever-If fever is above 101F, keep them at home until fever is less than 101F for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication.
    • Vomiting-keep child home for 24 hours after vomiting has stopped. Persistent vomiting-consult doctor.
    • Diarrhea with fever, vomiting or other symptoms-stay home until symptoms free for 24 hours. Also consult doctor.
    • Strep throat-keep child home until the they have been on antibiotics for 24 hours.
    • Rash with fever-keep child home until seen by a doctor.
    • The best way to prevent spread of germs is hand washing and staying home while sick/contagious-which is where the 24-hour symptom free recommendations come into play.

  • Seeking Volunteers for TK & Kindergarten Classrooms

    If you are interested in working in either transitional kindergarten or kindergarten classrooms, our elementary schools are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers! Our schools especially need support for 30-60 minutes at a time in the classroom, during recess, and during lunch.

    Please contact Madison's Parent Facilitator Sara Lopes at slopes@slusd.us to learn how you can become a volunteer.

  • Message from Dr. Rosanna Mucetti, Ed.D., Deputy Superintendent

    January 18, 2017

    As many of us are aware, this year’s Inauguration Day scheduled for Friday, January 20th is anticipated to evoke strong emotional responses across the country, similar to those observed in the days after the election. Despite our own political stances and views, it is critical our community pay close attention to how our youth are feeling as this political transition takes place.

    In anticipation, SLUSD wanted to proactively communicate with families about our commitment to student safety and creating safe spaces where students can process the political events, and supporting our students’ voices and their first amendment rights.

    Our school site staff has resources for teaching and promoting safe, inclusive activities in the classroom allowing for students to discuss the inauguration and how they might be feeling about our current political landscape. Principals have been directed to be vigilant throughout the week in supporting our students as the inauguration approaches. We remain committed to creating spaces during the school day for students to express themselves and process their reactions.

    Elementary and middle school principals have been directed to ensure no students leave campus on Friday as a reaction to the inauguration events. Given the ages of elementary and middle school students, it is important that we are mindful of their safety and believe it is not developmentally appropriate for this age group to be off campus during school hours. Schools will follow absentee protocols, if parents choose to take their children out of school to participate in events with them.
