Return to In-Person Learning – January 19th
As we look in anticipation to returning to in-person learning at Midland Elementary, it is important to keep the school informed of any student COVID exposure, symptoms, or positive diagnosis between now and January 19th.
Because of quarantining requirements, this information may affect a student’s date of return to in-person learning.
Not communicating with the Midland office during break or remote learning, may also lead to earlier and more frequent class or school quarantining when we return to in-person learning.
Thank you for your continued support of the health and safety of the our students at Midland!
January 19: All students return to in-person learning from 8:00am-2:30pm.
Mondays will be asynchronous at-home learning for all students.
Families always have the choice to keep students fully online or have them return to in-person learning. Please talk to your
