THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29TH, PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE - NO STUDENTS
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30TH, PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE- NO STUDENTS
Hello Midland Families,
As we approach the days of colder weather, I want to ask for your help. Due to COVID - 19 we are keeping our students in classroom groups to reduce their possible exposure to the virus. When students arrive at school, they are admitted to go directly to class at 7:45 a.m. and our teachers are ready to receive them.
If students arrive before 7:45 a.m. they will have to wait outside. In the past, we have been able to bring students inside and watch them as a group until teachers were ready. We can no longer provide that accommodation. If you need your child to arrive at school before 7:45, please contact the YMCA to arrange before school care. They almost have enough students to begin a morning program. They can be reached at 719-329-7284.
School begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. Students who arrive after 8:00 are tardy. Students who arrive after 8:20 are marked absent for the morning because they have missed more than 10% of the morning. On-line students are expected to log in two their teachers Webex room every morning and complete their daily assignment to be marked present.
Please see the attached letter for our bell schedule. Daily Bell Schedule
Please remind your students to bring a coat and wear their mask every day. The weather can change quickly and we always go outside for recess if the temperature is above 17 degrees.
Thank you for your support,
We are so excited to be welcoming students back to the school. Click here for more information.Welcoming students back

It’s hard to believe we are more than halfway through the first quarter of the school year! Despite the challenges of the pandemic, it’s still vital for families to connect with their child’s teacher(s). Parent/Guardian/Teacher conferences will soon be taking place, and although they may be virtual or different than in the past, there are still some things that never change. For starters, be prepared with the questions you have for your child’s teacher(s). Second, be open and honest and share your child’s strengths and weaknesses, letting the teacher know how best to work with your student. Third, keep the lines of communication open and let your child’s teacher(s) know the best way to reach you. Ask the best way to contact them should you have questions or concerns that arise.
