First Day Packet for Returning Students

Posted: August 7, 2014

Midlothian ISD is excited to continue online registration for the 2014-2015 school year. This process replaces the first day paper packet sent home at the beginning of each school year. An email was sent to the parent/guardian's primary email on each student's file. It has the student's Infosnap code login and web access information for each child. Parents will use the same login as last year.

English Spanish

Note: Middle school and elementary students' first day packets must be completed by the first day of school on August 25.

If parents are unable to complete this process online, there are computers in the A.H. Meadows Library for public use. (Library Hours: Mon. & Wed. 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Tues. & Thurs. 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m-4 p.m.)

For Infosnap questions, please email support@infosnap.com or call 866-752-6850. If a parent/guardian did not receive his/her child's personalized email, please contact the child's campus.

 

Incoming 7th Graders need required Immunizations

State law requires students in Texas schools to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. Incoming 7th graders are required to have additional vaccines before the beginning of the school year. If you have any questions about the required vaccines, please consult your doctor or school nurse. Without the proper documentation of required vaccinations or a valid medical or conscientious exemption, students will not be allowed to obtain a class schedule or start the 2014-2015 school year. More information can be found at immunizetexas.org

 

First Day of School at WGMS

The first day of the 2014-15 school year is August 25. Students will report to their first period class at 8:35am and follow a regular class schedule for the day. Students who arrive before 8:25am will report to the following locations: 6th grade-cafeteria, 7th grade-small gym, 8th grade-main gym.

Students only need to bring paper, pen/pencil and their lunch or lunch money on the first day of school. Please NO BACKPACKS. Students should only bring these essential items since they will be carrying everything with them all day. Students may want to put their paper and pens/pencils in a notebook to keep organized. Students should NOT bring all their supplies on the first day of school since they will not have a locker assigned to them until the second day. Students should bring all their supplies on Wednesday once lockers are assigned.

 

WGMS Meet The Teacher Night on Sept. 2

Parents and students are invited to Meet the Teacher Night on September 2. This will be a come and go event from 6:30pm until 8:00pm. Please stop by to meet all your child's teachers!

 

Fire Lane Enforcement

As the school year begins, the Midlothian Fire Department will continue enforcing fire lane violations at all MISD campuses and facilities. Attended vehicles during school drop off and pick up times are allowed to be in fire lanes as long as they can readily be moved. Unattended vehicles parked in fire lanes will be subject to citations or towed. Time is a factor during emergencies and Midlothian ISD and the Midlothian Fire Department want to emphasize that safety is our priority.

 

MISD Transitions to New Phone System

All campuses and buildings are in transition of receiving a new phone system. We appreciate your patience during the installation. Our goal is to have all phones and extensions working as soon as possible. Callers may experience a longer wait time and the inability to call extensions as it rolls directly to staff's voicemail. Again, we apologize for any disruption of service during this busy time of year.

The telephone upgrade is needed to bring the district's communications network in line with current technology.
