New Boxtop App!

The new and improved Box Tops mobile app uses state-of-the-art technology to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to Madison’s earnings online. Check it out here: https://www.boxtops4education.com/
Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products for awhile. Until the phase-out is complete, you can still clip and send them to school, but getting the app and scanning your store receipt will be so much easier.

Dear Madison families,

Last night several alert parents notified us of a nonspecific but potentially threatening post regarding “MMS” spreading on social media. We take all potential safety concerns very seriously, and immediately alerted police.

Overnight, Eugene Police investigated, identified and located the student who posted the concerning message and cited them for disorderly conduct.

Our Eugene Police School Resource Officers will have an increased presence at school today to provide reassurance of safety for families. We appreciate their partnership and support.

School safety is of the utmost importance to us. Making any threat to the safety of our students and staff is no joke—it is a serious matter that is against the law as well as school rules.

Please continue to talk with your students about school safety and how essential it is for them to come forward immediately if they ever have information about any threat or possible threat of violence, even if they are not sure it is credible. Such information should be reported to school staff or to police right away. You can contact the school administration, call Eugene Police at 541-682-5111, or report a tip anonymously at safeoregon.com or 1-844-4SAFE-OR.

Many thanks for your support and the work the work of the Eugene PD.

Nonspecific but Potentially Threatening Post on Social Media

Police are investigating a nonspecific but potentially threatening post spreading on social media tonight regarding “MMS,” possibly related to Madison. We take all potential threats to safety very seriously, and immediately alerted Eugene Police when this post was brought to our attention tonight.

Anyone with knowledge about the source of this post or other additional information is asked to call the Eugene Police non-emergency line at 541-682-5111.

We appreciate anyone who reports any issue of concern, even if you’re not sure it is a legitimate threat, so it can be investigated and precautions can be taken for our students’ safety.

We will update this post when there is further information.

School Choice Events

In Eugene School District 4J, our school choice policy is that students may request to enroll in any 4J school. School choice requests are accepted in an order determined by lottery.

School choice in January: School choice tours and meetings will be scheduled in the month of January. To be included in the annual school choice lottery, 4J residents must apply between January 1 and January 31. This deadline changed last year to be earlier than in previous years. Non-district residents must apply for an inter-district transfer between March 1 and March 31 to be included in the school placement lottery.

Who needs to apply: All students who wish to enroll in a school other than their neighborhood school must submit an application. This includes incoming siblings of current students, students who have moved out of our school neighborhood or the district and want to remain enrolled next year, eighth grade students who want to enroll in the International High School program, or a middleschool other than their neighborhood school, and non-residents who enrolled this year on a one year inter-district transfer. Their enrollment is not automatic.

Who does not need to apply: If your student is already enrolled in our school on an in-district school choice transfer and has not moved out of the district, or is already enrolled on a multi-year “open enrollment” transfer, you do not need to reapply to continue attending our school next year.

Come see our schools: If you or any of your friends are interested in exploring your school choice options, please invite them to come learn more about our wonderful school at Madison’s school choice events in January:
