A Family Newsletter: Week of January 15th

Welcome back!!

What a great first week back we have had! We hope you all had a wonderful break and enjoyed the time off with your family! Just a reminder that Monday, January 15th, is a Staff Development day and there is NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS!! I know we have some tired kiddos from getting back in the swing of things this week so hopefully they will take advantage of this time and rest!

As there have become rumblings of dicey weather in the forecast, we just want to remind you of the different ways to become informed of school closures and delays: Follow us on

  • Twitter - @MidlothianISD
  • Facebook - @MidloISD
  • Instagram - midlothianisd

Additional communication will also be sent to staff and parents via email and phone if delays or closures are to occur.

A Note from Nurse Martin

Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) is reporting that influenza activity has been sharply increasing nationally and locally.

If you haven’t done it already, consider protecting your family with flu vaccinations.

Please remind your children to cover their cough with a tissue or cough into their sleeve.

Washing your hands and keeping your hands away from your face are the best way to prevent spreading the flu.

Avoid close contact with people who are coughing or appear ill.

Please don't send students to school if they are sick. Students may not come to school with a temperature of 100.0 or higher and they must be 24 hours fever free without medication prior to returning to school.

Implementing these precautions are the best way to prevent spreading the flu.
