MCS’ ‘Things to Know’ list answers back-to-school questions

MADISON – Before the morning of Aug. 7 when school resumes, students in Madison City Schools and their parents will ask each other many questions. Is your school holding an open house? What supplies do you need for second grade? How much does lunch cost? Can I take my asthma inhaler? When does the bus get here?

“Answers to these and other questions can be found in the ‘Things To Know’ link. It doesn’t cover everything, but it includes the basics,” MCS Public Relations Manager John Peck said.

Hoping to inform student families in advance, MCS staff members have compiled “Some Things to Know For The MCS 2017-18 School Start,” a link available on the MCS home page. (

The first day of school is Aug. 7. The last day of the school year will May 24, 2018. The complete school year calendar that lists holidays, breaks and weather days is available by clicking the “Calendar” tab on the home page. (

Details about the transportation department, including bus schedules, stops and a route lookup by address, can be accessed by clicking “Transportation” in the list on the left of the home page. (

For news about special education, such as meetings and events, click “Special Education” in the list on the left of the home page. (

The child nutrition program’s web page covers meal programs, menus and other news. Click “Child Nutrition” in the list on the left of the home page. (
