Fort Madison Community School Start of School – Delayed

Fort Madison Community School District has delayed their start of school until Monday, August 28th. With heat index reaching over 100 coupled with the fact that the two elementary buildings are without air conditioning, school will not start until the temperatures lower and it is safer for students and staff.

Orientation for kindergarten will be mixed in with the regular activities on Monday, and will not be held on Friday, August 25th. 4th grade and freshman orientation will still take place on Friday from 8:30am-11:30am.

A revised calendar will be discussed moving forward and communicated with all families after the 2023-2024 school year is officially underway.
