PBIS WEBSITE

Parents and guardians:

We have a new PBIS website that is up and running for everyone to visit. The website contains information on the PBIS program at the junior high and high school level. Information that can be found on the website includes dates of PBIS days, what PBIS is, Eagle Bucks, Check-in Check-out information and contact information for PBIS team members.

A new exciting opportunity is for parents and guardians to refer their student into the tier 2 program where they would get extra assistance on a variety of skills. Students may also refer themselves for the tier 2 program. Entrance into the tier 2 program will be made by the tier 2 team based on a variety of different criteria.

PBIS Website is https://sites.google.com/midland.k12.ia.us/pbis/home

If you have any questions pertaining to the PBIS website, please email Raymond Dosland or Elizabeth Wright.

BACK TO SCHOOL BASICS

School day begins at 8:10AM sharp!

School day ends at 3:15 - most Wednesdays we have 1:00 dismissal due to teacher inservice. On weeks we have another early dismissal OR no school day due to holiday, parent-teacher conferences, etc. then we have a regular full day Wednesday. Be sure to check the school calendar and get those dates marked on your calendar at home so you know. MCSD 2017-18 Master Calendar

Students who arrive after the day starts need to check in at the office in the East portable room.

Midland is a closed campus. So any student who needs to leave campus for any reason after arriving - whether via car or bus - need to check out at the office. A staff member must talk to a parent unless the parent has previously contacted us about them leaving. Students can NOT leave grounds at lunch or when the buses arrive in the morning.

Cell phones - students are asked to put turn their cell phones off and put them in a plastic holder provided in each classroom as they enter the class. Phones are not to be seen or heard during classes. If a teacher does see/hear a phone during classtime, the cell phone is removed and taken to the office. Parents would need to pick up the phone at the office. Sorry for this inconvenience, but they are a very big distraction to our learning environment.

Should parents need to contact a student please feel free to call or email the office and they can pass the message along. Otherwise parents will
