Midland Messenger

March 22-26, 2021

Dear Midland Families,

It's been one year since schools closed last spring. During the time of quarantines and the spread of COVID, many students were not with other children. Now that we are back in school, we know many students are happy to be back! We also see some students who are shy, nervous, or even feel anxious about being with others.

Below is a chart of Social Emotional skills that kids need to be successful at school and at home. Take a look to see if you recognize some of these strengths in your child, and celebrate those! Also consider which of these skills may be underdeveloped at this time. We have two school counselors, so if you believe that your child may need additional social-emotional support please do not hesitate to reach out. You can talk with your child's teacher or call the office, and we can connect you with our counselors, Ms. Morgan Stephens (grades k,1,2) or Mr. Chris Scotti (grades 3,4,5).

I encourage you to talk with your child about how they are feeling about friendships, school work, and family. These social skills are the key to being socially and emotionally healthy.

It's great to be a MUSTANG!

~Mrs. Dawson

Midland wants to STOP Covid at the door!

Midland families,

Just a reminder that you need to complete a health screening questionnaire EVERY morning. This survey will come to your email, but you can also set it up to be sent as a text to your phone, for easy completion. If you have not filled out the form, your child will not be allowed to enter class until we have heard from you to answer questions, and have your child's temperature taken. Please see the button below for specific information regarding the Daily Health Check, as well as what to do if you are having trouble receiving the email.

PLEASE do your part before school, so that your child can go to class when they arrive.

  • Students will be required to wear a mask on the bus, in the halls, in class, and at recess.
  • Students will wash hands and use hand sanitizer throughout the day.
  • Students will sit 6 feet apart in the classroom.

If your child has been exposed to COVID, or if they are showing symptoms of illness, you may not send them to school until they have been quarantined and symptom free for 14 days. Teachers will provide work for students during this time. We are counting on everyone to keep Midland safe for all students and staff. Thank you!
