Dear Madeira Families, 

We are writing to affirm our decision to re-open campus for Mod 2. We are happy to be able to offer on-campus as well as remote learning beginning October 5. For the past three weeks our faculty and staff have successfully practiced the new health protocols and procedures as highlighted in the Protect Madeira Pledge. We are confident in our ability to execute our reopening plan and look forward to welcoming students back to campus. 

As a reminder, all courses have been designed as hybrid classes to meet students’ learning needs both in person and with distance learning, so every family has the option to make the best decision for their individual situation. Madeira’s Mod system offers great flexibility for a family to make their decision on a mod-by-mod basis. 

We will share further details about arrival logistics and procedures next week. In the meantime, if you have not already done so, please sign the three forms in the parent portal

Mark your calendars for our upcoming Back to School Night on Thursday, October 8. We have pivoted our Family Weekend that was originally scheduled for October 10 to this new event. You will have the opportunity to hear directly from our academic leadership and your daughter’s Mod 2 teachers about course goals, expectations, and outcomes for learning. 

We are eager to hear about your daughter’s school experience so far this year; please be on the lookout for an email with details on how to schedule a call with a Class Dean or member of the Administrative team. We are so grateful for your trust and partnership as we support our students and deliver high quality and joyful learning this year. 


Gretchen and the Madeira Administrative Team
