In light of the horrific school shooting in Florida this week, we have received numerous calls and emails from concerned parents and guardians wanting to know what measures APS takes to keep its students and staff safe.

As Superintendent Reedy stated in a message posted to APS website and social media sites, all schools were asked to review their site safety plans which include detailed instructions for a host of possible emergency situations including an active shooter on campus. 

Here is some information we can share about how we address school safety:

· Our school safety plan includes site-specific instructions relevant to Madison, based on the design and layout of our building.

· We are required  to practice lockdown, shelter-in-place and evacuation drills according to our site-specific plan during the school year.  We have already had a lockdown drill and a shelter-in-place drill this year.  We will be practicing an evacuation drill at the end of this month.  

· In all emergency scenarios, we remind our students and staff to be responsive and follow the directions of all public safety responders.

· Fortunately for APS, we have our own Police Department that works closely with the Albuquerque Police Department and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office. We have a Campus Security Aid assigned to  our school, and we have field officers who respond to incidences as well.

· Any time a student or staff member sees a suspicious person on campus or encounters a person who is being disruptive, they are asked to contact a police or safety officer or administrator.

· Visitors to our school are expected to check in at the front office and wear a visitor’s badge while on campus.  All staff and students are also required to wear ID badges while on campus.  This allows us to easily identify those folks that belong and those that don't.  

· We have over 25 security cameras on the Madison campus.

· We take seriously every threat or rumor of a threat to students, staff or school. We conduct immediate investigations, including student searches, and take disciplinary action when necessary.

· We do not discuss disciplinary actions because we are required by law to protect the privacy of all students, including students who may have made threats. However, we can say that students who make threats face disciplinary action that could include suspension and/or expulsion.

· Anyone who hears of a possible threat to a school is encouraged to contact a school administrator or police. The APS Police Department can be reached at 505-243-7712.

We all have a role to play in ensuring our schools continue to be a safe place for learning, and it is incumbent on all of us to be vigilant and supportive of one another. Remember, if you see or hear something, say something. You can contact APS School Police at 505-243-7712.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that provides the books kids want to read. It's a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. 
Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Please make plans to come to our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits. 
Remember, all purchases benefit our school. See you at the Book Fair!

As you know the Madison main gym is under a major renovation so all PE classes and athletic activities must use the newly renovated auxiliary gym.  Also, APS Athletics revised our program so that the A & B boys teams will play in the fall and then the A & B girls teams will start in Jan.  That being said, along with hiring two new coaches and dealing with the logistics of having over 70 kids trying out in our Aux gym, we had to delay the start of our boys’ basketball tryouts.  Our new coaches are Brandon Heckroth-A team and John Siedlecki-B team.


After meeting with our new coaches, we have come up with a tryout schedule that will best meet our needs.


Friday Oct 20th        

All 6th and 7th grade boys tryouts. Cuts will be made at the end of this tryout.

Monday Oct 23rd    

7th graders asked to come back and all 8th graders.  Cuts will be made at the end of this tryout.

Tuesday Oct 24th   

6th, 7th and 8th grade boys ask to come back.  Cuts may be made at the end of this tryout.


Tryouts will start at 3:20 in the Auxiliary gym and run till 5:30pm.  Boys are to change into their practice clothes in the main hallway bathroom.  Any food should be eaten outside of the gym and only water bottles will be allowed in the gym.  No sports drinks are allowed in the gym.


Tryouts are closed to all spectators.  Parents should pick their student/athlete up promptly at 5:30.   We cannot leave students unattended in the parking lot and our coaches need to get home to their families as well.


All students who wish to tryout must have completed an APS physical form and either have turned them into the office already or bring with them to the first day of tryouts.  The athletic director will be checking grades for the first 9 weeks.  All students who tryout must have a 2.0 with no more than one ‘F’.

Thank you for your patience!  We look forward to a successful season.
