Parents of 8th graders: Make this year special with a personal ad in the WGMS yearbook! Wish your 8th grader well in high school or purchase a best friends/group ad for several students. Ads will be in full color. Start gathering your pictures and designing your ad now. Each 8th grader received a copy of the ad guidelines and order form. If you need another copy you can pick up a copy in the WGMS office or download a copy here. Payment and ad design both must be turned in by the deadline of September 26. Please be aware that orders may be cut off before the deadline if all the designated page space in the yearbook is taken.
Please be aware of the following district guidelines for middle school students attending MHS varsity home football games:
1. Students must attend with a parent who buys a ticket and stays for the entire game. No drop off of students by parents is allowed. Older siblings, uncles, etc. do not count as a parent.
2. Middle school students and their parent may bring in one school-aged friend with them who is not with their parent.
3. Enter the stadium thru Gate A and use the concession stand and restrooms at Gate A.
4. Be seated with your parent or be seated in the middle school section. Hanging around in the walk way behind the middle school section is not allowed.
Failure to comply with stadium rules will result in you not being allowed to attend home games for the remainder of the season.
Midlothian ISD offers bus transportation for all eligible students during the regular school year. Every effort is being made to provide safe, comfortable, and pleasant transportation services while maintaining an appropriate level of efficiency. A parent letter will be provided to students whose bus stop time has changed due to an adjustment in routes and decrease in number stops to minimize ride times for students.
Midlothian ISD has celebrated school-community spirit since 1906. So let's continue to show our Panther Pride during the Homecoming 2014 festivities. To rally and support the Panthers, a community pep rally is scheduled for Wednesday, September 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Stadium. On Friday, September 19 the homecoming parade will be at 3:00 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. the MHS Football Panthers will tackle the Haltom Buffalos. View parade info & route.
NOTE: The early release times have been adjusted at all schools to allow more time for traffic, buses and students to get where they need to go for the homecoming parade. We appreciate your support and understanding. PreK & PPCD students will receive a letter with schedule. The early release days on Dec. 18 and 19 and June 4 and 5 will remain as the normal 2-hour early release.
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.
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.
