If you would like to receive up-to-date information from specific schools, sports, or as an alumnus, please follow these steps to sign up to have information sent directly to your e-mail. Thank you for partnering with us to improve our channels of communication.
A List Server is a program that distributes email to a large number of people that are all subscribers to the same list serve. A district employee sends an email message to the list address which is then sent to all members of the list. People subscribe or unsubscribe themselves to the list by using their own email.
What list serves have been set up?
MESParents is a list for Elementary School Parents (PreSchool through 4th Grade)
MMSParents is a list for Middle School Parents (5th through 8th grades)
MHSParents is a list for High School Parents (9th through 12th grades)
District is a list for people who just want the main announcements, but not the building level announcements.
Alumni is a list for Alumni of Madeira Schools
Sports is a list for people who want to keep informed about changes in the game or practice schedules as well as other updates about sports.
What kind of information will be sent through these lists?
- notice or reminders of meetings
- building closings
- notice or reminders of sporting events or musicals
- last minute call for volunteers
- weekly Blue and Gold Digest
- other school-related information
How do I join (subscribe to) a list serve?
You send an email to one or several of the email addresses found below. It does not matter what is in the email; just the act of sending the email will sign you up for the list. Clicking on the links below will set up an email application like Outlook, etc., to send an email that will subscribe you to that listserve. If you use a web browser (like Internet Explorer) for your email, you will have to type the address or use copy/paste techniques.
Elementary School list email MESParentsfirstname.lastname@example.org
Middle School list email to MMSParentsemail@example.com
High School list email MHSParentsfirstname.lastname@example.org
District list email Districtemail@example.com
Alumni list email Alumnifirstname.lastname@example.org
Sports list email Sportsemail@example.com
You can sign up for several lists - either with additional email messages - or by having carbon copies (Cc:) going to the other addresses as part of the same email. You will know if it has worked because you will get an email back from the List Server program after a few minutes have passed.
How do I leave (unsubscribe from) a list?
You send an email to one or several of the email addresses found below. It does not matter what is in the email; just the act of sending the email will remove you from the list. You must send the email from the address you subscribed from, which is important if you have emails forwarded from multiple accounts. Clicking on the links below will set up an email application like Outlook, etc., to send an email that will unsubscribe you from that listserve. If you use a web browser (like Internet Explorer) for your email, you will have to type the address or use copy/paste techniques.
Elementary School list email MESParentsfirstname.lastname@example.org
Middle School list email MMSParentsemail@example.com
High School list email MHSParentsfirstname.lastname@example.org
District list email Districtemail@example.com
Alumni list email Alumnifirstname.lastname@example.org
Sports list email Sportsemail@example.com
How do I change my email address?
Simply join the list from within your new email address. If you still have access to the old email account, you could remove yourself from lists by following directions above to un-subscribe (while within your old email account.) If your old email account does not exist anymore, our listserver program will drop the email after a few failures.
Your privacy is important to us. We will not give your email address to others, nor will anyone be able to see your email address as part of a message.
You may join from several email addresses: work, home, a grandparent, a student, etc.
Each message contains information about how to unsubscribe from a list. In future years as your children move from program to program, you will most likely add yourself to new lists and remove yourself from others.
If you subscribe to more than one list, there may be times when you get more than one copy of the same email. For example, if the same message is sent to two buildings and you belong to both lists, you will get both messages. Each message will inform you from whence it came, and you simply delete the duplicate message as needed.
There is no cost to you to subscribe to a list.
These email lists do not replace existing forms of communication. They are designed only as an additional way to get information to you.
