Welcome

  • Hello Madeira Beach Fundamental Families,

    Welcome Back to School!  Our 12th year begins differently as we try to get our children back to some normalcy and learning.  We will restart and be better than ever, and part of that restart is a soft opening.  We have had to revise some of our processes and procedures for the school due to COVID-19.  Please be patient as we work out a new way of work to try and keep our students and staff safe and healthy.  As of now, we will start school on Monday August 24th.   As it relates to student learning, updates to school and student schedules, due to Learning Option selections, are still being made.  Please allow school staff the time to complete this process.  At this time, schedule changes will not made until the master schedule is finalized.  Final schedules will be made available in Focus on August 18.  We will be holding a virtual Meet the Teacher session for our elementary students and families Thursday, August 20th.   We will have two sessions: 1:00P, and 2:00P on MS Teams.  Students may access Teams through Clever.  If you are new to MBFS and would like to walk our campus, it will be accessible for self-guided tours August 17 to August 20 nightly 5:00P- 8:00P. Please accept our apologies for being unable to accommodate school staff guided tours to all families due to social distancing guidelines.  We appreciate your understanding.

    And finally, should your child need a computer device for your virtual educational need (MyPCS), please contact Deb Ivy at 727-547-7697 or email her at ivyd@pcsb.org by Tuesday, August 18. She can help direct you.  

    Thank you for helping us Restart.  If you have any questions about the reopening, please click on the link below for answers to FAQ's.  We are here to help.

    Virtual Attendance Matters!

    Click on the link below for a message from Principal Ateek:

    Virtual Attendance Matters

    Welcome to MadFun virtual school. As always, student attendance MATTERS. A lot of things have changed, but one thing has not. Student attendance matters. Every student, every day. Students must check in for attendance in each class by 10:30 AM every day. We do understand there will be times when this is not possible understanding that technology availability and parent support differs from home to home, but let’s do our best to get into a routine.

    There are several ways your child can be marked present in your virtual classes. Teachers will send out an attendance link OR an attendance question for check in. Your attendance can also be counted when you turn in an assignment.  Make sure you're checking TEAMS or FORMS for these assignments, from each of your teachers every day. You can also send a message directly to your teachers using Focus. If you're having connection or technology issues, check out the website for digital learning from Pinellas County Schools at  www.pcsb.org/digitallearninfo.  If you are having technical issues you can also call District Tech Support at 727.588.6060. We are all learning as we go and are right here with you.
