Healthy and Safe practices at Midland

Midland families,

Just a reminder of the things that we'd like you to consider before sending your child to school each day:


  • A temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above?
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell


These are some safety precautions we will be practicing at Midland:

  • 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 3 feet apart in the classroom, and 6 feet apart during breakfast & lunch.


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 10 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!
