Subject line: Safety precautions taken today due to community incident

Dear Jefferson Families,

I am writing to notify you that late this morning, we were informed of police activity near our school. This activity was not targeted toward our school, but because of the proximity, we decided to take the precaution of keeping students inside the building until we could ensure their safety.

We learned about the police activity just as the bell was ringing for early release dismissal. Our staff and students did an excellent job following directions and returning to their homerooms ensuring a smooth transition.

The safety of our students is always our top priority, which is why we decided to take precautions today. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

The Rotary Club of Madison West Towne-Middleton is a service club made up of about 65 professional men and women who work on the west side of Madison and in Middleton.  The Club has for more than forty-five years been actively involved in local community projects, like youth scholarships, bingo at Oakwood, Wisconsin Academic Decathlon, and many more. The group is also involved in efforts around the world, including orphanages in Eastern Europe and Latin American, as well as water projects in South America.
Last year, the Club looked to make a strong, long-term commitment to a local school through the 'Adopt-a-School' program of the Foundation for Madison's Public Schools. They chose Jefferson Middle School. What has that meant so far?
The Club has provided a Chrome Cart with twenty Chromebook computers, funds for Mad City Challenge, 65 filled back packs and school supplies as well as decoration help for the 8 th grade dance, as well as mock job interviews and career talks. We at Jefferson benefit from their real-world experience, and the Rotary Club gains from learning about and connecting with their local community. ​And the Club is not done yet!
Thank you Rotary Club!
