Occasionally, rapidly changing weather impacts our daily schedule. Weather conditions are carefully reviewed before classes are canceled, started late, or dismissed early. We know that when we delay the start of school or cancel the school day completely, it has a significant impact on families.
District administrators are required to make a decision as early as 5:00 a.m. on weather related situations so we can dispatch transportation, notify parents, staff, local media and post information using our website, ParentLink and other resources.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by decisions made today due to the inclement weather. Again, we are committed to making a decision based on the current weather reports, student safety, staff safety, road conditions and local law enforcement input.
Today at 5:00 a.m. the administration decided to start school at the normal time based on current road and weather conditions.
Buses left at 6:00 a.m. to begin the elementary routes. Toward the end of the elementary routes, the weather conditions worsened causing the district to delay the secondary (6th-12th) start time until 10:00 a.m. in order for students and buses to arrive at school safely.
At approximately 8:40 a.m., because of reported road conditions and delay in bus routes, it was decided to close all secondary schools. Elementary schools would remain on normal schedule since they had already arrived safely at their campuses and weather conditions should be vastly improved by dismissal at 2:45 today.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue to try and make the best decisions to keep students safe. Please email us if you have any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Midlothian ISD parents are encouraged to complete an anonymous online survey to share their perceptions and input regarding MISD. Part of the 83rd Texas Legislature House Bill 5 requires all districts to evaluate the district and individual campus' performance based on community and student engagement. This bill allows school districts to showcase areas of excellence and success outside the limited scope of standardized test scores. It is also an opportunity for staff to recognize areas that need improvement in the future.
The nine factors evaluated include fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st century workforce development program, second language acquisition program, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, educational programs for GT students and compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements. All school districts and campuses are required to assign a performance rating of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable for overall performance.
Take the 2015 parent survey which ends Thursday, February 26.
