RSchool Made Easy Instructions
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 chromebook or other piece of technology is checked out to the student.
Students in grades 6-12 are all assigned a chromebook as part of our 1:1 Program, upon turning in appropriate paperwork (available at registration day or the first day of school). Grades 7-12 can take their chromebooks home, 6th graders will store theirs in their classroom at school for at least the first semester until trained on how to care for a chromebook.
Both the TECHNOLOGY POLICY and TECHNOLOGY DEVICE AGREEMENT need read carefully by both the parent and the student. These will be approved electronically as part of the e-registration program at Midland.
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 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 319-259-5340 x 1300.
