Community Consolidated School District 181
Madison School is proud to be a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School. In keeping with a tradition of excellence, the Madison School staff is committed, along with their colleagues from all District 181 schools, to providing an exemplary education to all learners. Our students are active participants learning in classrooms with differentiated instruction and a nurturing culture. Students recognize the importance of being a "kind, safe and respectful" learner from the shared messages expressed by all staff and their parents. We are all "making magic" while becoming engaged in meaningful educational offerings. Madison School was constructed in 1924 and has undergone several renovations and additions in its storied history
Dear Parents and Staff,
We wanted to inform you of an accident in downtown Clarendon Hills earlier this morning where a truck crossing at Prospect was hit by a train. We were notified that this caused the car to roll over and catch on fire.
We wanted to let you know that all of our buses that traverse nearby routes arrived safely and were not affected. Additionally, we have determined that all of our students and staff arrived safely as well, though we know that some had unfortunately witnessed the accident during their commute. Staff is watching for any distress in students and will alert our school social workers as needed. Counseling will be available throughout the day for any students or staff who need to process the event.
In addition, we were notified by the Village of Clarendon Hills that the train track crossing at Prospect is closed to traffic and pedestrians until further notice. As a result, there may be a delay for some buses and students returning home from school this afternoon. They have been asked to use the west Hinsdale crossing or the Cass Avenue crossing in Westmont.
Please contact your school principal or my office if you have questions or concerns.
Dr. Hector Garcia
