From Our Principal

Welcome to the 20-21 school year, Madison Park Lions! I am looking forward to this unique school year. Myself, Ms. Galindo, and Park teachers have been working diligently over the summer to plan for both online and in-person classes. We will continue to provide a high-quality education regardless of how that education is delivered. As such, the work we have done this summer will improve our virtual instruction from what was provided during the spring semester.


Our vision, “Park students will promote with the academic and social skills needed to be successful in high school without the need for remediation,” will be met through our commitment to provide rigorous instruction aligned to grade-level standards.

Student safety will always be a top priority and we have put a number of measures in place for when we return to in-person instruction. The details of the plan we created can be seen in our “School Reopening Plan.” The 20-21 school year will be unlike any other I have experienced during my 17 years in education, but I know we can work together to make this another great year at Madison Park.


Educationally yours,


Mrs. Margaret Rodriguez

Principal
