"Madison Lion Cubs are Always Respectful, Always Responsible, and Always Really Safe!"
See list of back-to-school resources
The first day of school for the Olympia School District is Wednesday, September 7! Kindergarten and Preschool begin on Monday, September 12. We have put together a few resources that will make it easier for our students and parents to get the school year off to a great start! On our back to school page you will find links to resources like school supplies, bus routes, new student registration and more.
School registration available online
School registration is available online for the 2016-17 school year. Families without computer access may do so in person between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the Olympia School District Administrative Center, Room 305, 1113 Legion Way S.E. in Olympia (three-story building on the corner of Legion Way S.E. and Eastside Street). Registration assistance will also be available at school offices after they re-open following summer break. Middle and high schools will re-open on August 8, and elementary schools will re-open on August 17. For more information about student registration before schools open, contact the school district's Student Information Systems office at 360-596-6150.
Supply Lists 2016-17
The link below will take you to our 2016-17 Supply Lists. Please note that this year Madison received some very generous contributions from Capital City Rotary, First United Methodist Church of Olympia (FUMCO), and Deb Bigelow (community member and volunteer). These organizations and individuals have "adopted" our Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students and their donations will pay for most of the items on the Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade supply lists! If you wish, you may show your appreciation by making a monetary donation to the "Madison Education Foundation". The Madison Education Foundation helps fund assembles, after school enrichment classes, and special school projects not ordinarily funded by the district. Thank you!

Pick-Up and Drop Off Tips
Greetings, Madison families! Sometimes our parking area gets busy with folks picking up and dropping off students. Here are some tips to make things flow smoothly for all of us:
- Remember to keep to the right.
- Move forward as far as you can.
- Remember not to block the Handicapped Parking spaces.
- Please do not leave or park your vehicle in the pick-up zone.
- If you must park, please use one of the parking stalls.
- Watch out for children and adults who may be crossing the parking lot.
Thank you for your help!
Police to conduct active shooter training Aug. 17 and 31
The Olympia Police Department will conduct an active shooter training on August 17 and August 31 at the school district’s John Rogers Building, a facility on 26th Avenue Northeast that formerly housed the Olympia Regional Learning Academy and John Rogers Elementary School.
The routine annual in-service training for Olympia Police Department patrol officers will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.
The John Rogers campus, located at 2001 26th Ave. N.E., will be closed with signs around the property clearly notifying people that police training is underway. Olympia police plan to hold most of the practice inside of the building with little of the activity visible to the public. Police report the tools they will use are not expected to cause any alarming noises. An occasional loud voice may be heard by adjacent neighbors, and several police patrol vehicles will be in the building’s parking areas.
Any questions about this training may be directed to Olympia Police Lt. Paul Lower at 360-753-8410.
