New School Year Has Begun

Madison City Schools welcomed back students for the 2023-2024 school year.

Buses rolled, drivers crept through dropoff zones and walkers strolled in for a new year of learning.

There were a few of the typical glitches with things like class schedules and lunch account adjustments but otherwise a great day.

It's going to be a fantastic 2023-2024 school year for Madison City Schools.
