Dear Families,

During the period of school closure, Madison Public Schools will be implementing live virtual sessions. These sessions will be whole classroom, small group, or individual 1:1 instruction. During whole classroom or small group instruction, names and images of students shall be visible to the teacher and other participating students. 

Parents are encouraged to have their child participate via a location that is quiet and free of distraction, to the extent possible. Other individuals in the home are not permitted to participate in or be visible on the video conference, or otherwise observe the lesson, other than reasonable adult supervision of the student.  Parents and students are prohibited from recording video conferencing sessions. All individuals shall comply with relevant Board of Education policies, including but not limited to those concerning the confidentiality of student records and acceptable use of district computer systems.   
 
Student privacy and the confidentiality of student information is of utmost importance. Parents are reminded, however, that the District is not in direct control of individual homes of participating students.  
 
 If you do not wish for your child to participate live virtual sessions, please reply Dr. Elizabeth Battaglia (battagliae@madison.k12.ct.us) to opt-out.


Sincerely,

Elizabeth Battaglia, Ed.D.
