As a precautionary measure, MMSD is temporarily restricting potlucks and food sharing in schools until further notice. We also ask that families avoid sending in food items to be shared with others.  We are in daily contact with Public Health Madison and Dane County, and they have asked us to implement this measure, along with other preventative measures including washing hands frequently with soap and water and staying home when you're sick. This does not limit students or staff in bringing in a lunch or personal snack from home. 

MMSD athletic community, 

Earlier this afternoon Madison Metropolitan School District sent a message to all staff and families announcing a temporary out of state travel restriction on all staff and student travel that is school-related or district-related.  

I wanted to share some additional details specific to athletics. (Some of the information below will be similar to what you already received.)

District administrators and staff continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak locally, across the United States and globally.  At this time, there are two confirmed active cases of COVID-19 in Wisconsin, with one of those cases being in Dane County. It is also being reported that in each of these recent cases there was a history of domestic travel.  Public health officials are still indicating that the risk to our area remains relatively low, however that is not the case in other areas of the country and world.

Therefore, as a preventative measure, MMSD is imposing a temporary out of state travel restriction on all district related staff and student travel. This includes travel for meetings, conferences, field trips or any other events outside the state of Wisconsin. We will keep this district travel restriction in place until further notice, and will regularly revisit the status of these preventive measures.  During this travel restriction, if you have meetings with groups out of state, we encourage you to continue these partnerships via teleconference whenever possible.

What this means for athletics trips and activities 

For MMSD athletic trips and activities this means out of state activities affiliated with team or club membership will not be permitted during the spring season until the out-of-state travel restrictions are lifted.  Coaching staff may not travel out of state for clinics, training, practices, or competitions related to their position as a coach or advisor of an in-season sport or activity.  

MMSD extended trip requests will not be granted and will be rescinded if previously granted. In addition, trips not under the purview of extended trip guidelines may not include MMSD staff or students such as competitions or trips out-of-state that do not require extended travel paperwork.  MMSD’s participation in competitions involving out-of-state teams taking place within Wisconsin will be reviewed on an individual basis.

At this time we do not have any plans to restrict practices or competitions within the state but that may evolve as the situation continues to progress.  Resources from the WIAA and other sources are regularly being updated at this link related to interscholastic athletics. MMSD will be posting regular updates online at mmsd.org/covid19

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Here are some ways you can keep the team healthy and help prevent the spread of viruses.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially prior to practice and competitions.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue into the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

With this in mind we will work with our coaches, teams, and athletic training staff to reinforce cleanliness and healthy practices and provide the resources necessary to address in afterschool and competition settings.  Missing practice or competitions due to illness is understood, appropriate, and encouraged and will not be met with a punitive response.

CDC hais kom txhaj tshuaj tiv thaiv tus mob khaub thuas influenza txhua xyoo rau txhua tus neeg muaj 6 xyoo los yog loj zog ntawd. Lwm yam kev tiv thaiv xws li:

  • Ib sij ntxuav nej cov tes nrog xab npus thiab dej
  • Pab nej cov me nyuam kawm ntawv ntxuav lawv cov tes kom hu
  • Peb yuav tsis muab tshuaj ntxuav tes rau nej thaum peb ua raws CDC cov lus hais tias xab npus thiab dej yog txoj kev zoo tshaj los ntxuas tes

Peb cov neeg ua hauj lwm tu tsev yuav ua lawv txoj hauj lwm tu tsev ntxiv mus, nrog rau kev cuab pob ntseg los mus ntxuav/so tej qhov neeg nquag nquag tuav.

Lwm Yam Kev Pab Ntxiv:

Dear MMSD Staff (a similar version of this letter is being sent to families simultaneously),


Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) administrators and staff continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak locally, across the United States and globally. At this time, there are two active cases of COVID-19 in Wisconsin, with one of those cases being in Dane County. It is also being reported that in these recent cases there was a history of domestic travel. Public health officials are still indicating that the risk to our area remains relatively low, however that is not the case in other areas of the country and world.


Therefore, as a preventative measure, MMSD is imposing a temporary out of state travel restriction on all district related staff and student travel. This includes travel for meetings, conferences, field trips or any other events outside the state of Wisconsin. We will keep this district travel restriction in place until further notice, and will regularly revisit the status of these preventive measures. During this travel restriction, if you have meetings with groups out of state, we encourage you to continue these partnerships via teleconference whenever possible.


MMSD has an interdisciplinary team developing a plan on how the district will continue to respond to COVID-19 if our risk levels should increase. This team has been meeting daily to review updates and communicate with local and state health officials, neighboring school districts as well as receiving guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). 


It is important to note that this is a time of preparation in support of keeping our students, staff and community safe and healthy. To reduce levels of anxiety, it is important to keep yourself updated on the latest developments and those around you accurately informed. You can find more information on our MMSD Coronavirus web page at mmsd.org/covid19.


We will be providing staff and families a COVID-19 update each Friday, or sooner if necessary, to keep you informed on the latest developments and updates on MMSD planning and preparedness. 


Thank you for your time and understanding.

We understand that many of you are feeling concerned about the coronavirus and have reached out to us with questions. (Coronavirus is a new type of virus that was found in Wuhan, China. This virus comes from a large family of coronaviruses common throughout the world. They can infect people and cause mild respiratory diseases, like the common cold, and rarely, more serious disease.)

We want you to know that we are working closely with Public Health Madison and Dane County and we are in constant contact with MMSD’s Medical Consultant, a Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist who gives us guidance around the coronavirus and other illnesses. 

We are learning new information about the virus each day. At this time, there are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Dane County or Wisconsin. As of right now, unless you or your family has traveled within China in the past two weeks, or you have been in contact with someone who has, you are not at risk of developing the virus. If you have concerns about the coronavirus, contact your healthcare provider. 

For more information and updates go to the Public Health Madison and Dane County Website or the CDC website.  Also, remember Influenza (flu) is more of a threat then coronavirus at this time. If you have not had the influence vaccine, you can still get it. And, don’t forget to wash your hands and cover your cough.

As usual, any student with a persistent cough and fever will need to stay home from school, per our Illness Guidelines. We will continue to share updates as we receive them.
