TECHNOLOGY POLICY

Midland wants to expose our students to technology as we believe that is a life skill they will need. Every student and his/her parent will need to sign a technology policy each year before a laptop is checked out to the student.

Students in grades 6-12 are all assigned a laptop as part of our 1:1 Program, upon turning in appropriate papework (available at registration day or the first day of school). Grades 7-12 can take their laptops home, 6th graders will store theirs in their classroom at school.

Please read the TECHNOLOGY POLICY (click here) carefully, discuss it with your child, sign it and return it to the school office at your earliest convenience each year.

If questions, feel free to contact the building principal.

************************************

SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM

Free and reduced lunch program is available to all who qualify. Applicants need to turn the completed application form into the school office. It must then be validated by lunch program secretary Deb Larkey at the Oxford Junction center, so please turn it in before the first day of school. You will be notified as to your qualification. If questions, contact Erika Tubbs at 563-488-2292 x 3270.

FAMILY RESOURCES AVAILABLE

We would like you to be aware of some great resources available to help families.

HACAP (Hawkeye Area Community Action Program) has several great programs:

-Low-Income Heating Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP): helps with the cost of heating and cooling your home. This program is for low-income households and the elderly and disabled.

-Weatherization Program (goes along with the LIHEAP program): HACAP will check over your furnace, make minor repairs, and help insulate your home to help reduce utility costs.

-Housing Rehabilitation Program: If you own your own home but need help with the cost of home repairs (such as a new roof, stairs, flooring, etc.) this program can help with these costly repairs.

-Emergency Food Boxes- If you are in a pinch and cannot afford to buy food for your family, the Emergency Food Box will feed a family of four for four days.

For more information about these programs go to www.hacap.org or call Mitch Finn at HACAP at (319) 739-1539 or e-mail him: mfinn@hacap.org.
