Monday, March 15,2021 100% In-Person RETURNS!!!

From the Desk of Principal Woods-Wallace

Hello Middlebury Families,


The time has come to welcome scholars back in-person 5 days a week! Classrooms have been arranged and the building is continuously sanitized to ensure that scholars return to a safe learning environment.


Families are reminded that we ask that scholars are released from their cars or walk in by themselves to decrease the amount of excessive foot traffic in the school. We will continue to follow all of our safety precautions with requiring face masks and temping scholars before they proceed in the building.


As a reference, please be advised of the times we start and end school:


  • Breakfast - 8:00 am - 8:30 am
  • Instructional Day - 8:35 am - 2:55 pm
  • Dismissal (Walkers) - 2:55 pm
  • Dismissal (Car Riders) - 3:00 pm


In addition, we have RELAXED our dress code thus allowing scholars to wear clothing that is school-appropriate. Garments that should not be worn to school include, but are not limited to:


  • Clothing without inappropriate images or vulgarities
  • Revealing clothing
  • Ripped garments that show intimate areas of the body
  • Sagging pants
  • Hats inside of the building
  • Open toe shoes
  • Any other attire that is considered inappropriate for a school setting


To read about more provisions and expectations of our scholars, please take a moment to review the Virtual Open House Presentation that is included in this newsletter.


We have also created new classroom groupings to accommodate our scholars. Effective Monday, March 15th we will have the following classroom cohorts and teachers:



  • K/1st Grade - Ms. Kirkman
  • 2nd/3rd Grade - Ms. Ritch
  • 3rd/4th Grade - Mr. Sloan



Our scholars that will receive new classroom teachers will also receive new bell schedules. If you encounter any problems with locating your scholar's teacher, please call the school at 330.752.2766 and we will assist you.


We would like to sincerely thank all of our families for your faithfulness and trust in the work we are doing for scholars. We understand that we cannot do this alone, so your support and efforts are greatly appreciated!


Let us all have a positively IMPACTFUL week!


Yours in education,


Ms. Woods-Wallace, M.Ed.

Middlebury Academy is a tuition-free elementary charter school located in Akron, Ohio. We opened in August 2013, serving scholars in grades K-8. Middlebury places high importance on safety and civility. These are core to having a good learning environment and building character.


We have a project-based learning curriculum philosophy that incorporates new and emerging practices and technologies, such as chromebooks and tablets. We view the entire world as our classroom and will have a variety of face-to-face, virtual and other learning activities outside of the school.
