Parents & Guardians,
This is a reminder that you should verify your contact information in case of inclement weather by logging in to Skyward and selecting the Skylert tab in Family Access. You may especially wish to add a phone number to receive a text or add additional contact numbers or email addresses.
The Middleton School District will immediately notify guardians via Skylert regarding any emergency information needed if the situation arises.
In order to receive these notifications in the format that will reach you immediately, you must log into Family Access -- https://skyweb.msd134.org -- and mark the method(s), in which you desire to be notified: email, phone call and/or text. The quick video link below will walk you through the process of marking the methods that you desire:
If you have any questions, are a first time user for Family Access or need to know your login information, please contact your student's school secretary.
The Middleton 21st Century Community Learning Center, or Valhalla as we like to call it, is an excellent resource for your middle schooler.
The program offers morning study hall and breakfast on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 am in the Annex A cafeteria. This is the perfect opportunity for your student to finish up homework before the school day begins. These morning study sessions are run by certified teaching staff.
Valhalla also offers after school hours Monday-Thursday. Students meet in the Annex A cafeteria after school where they are given a snack, provided by food service. Students are then given 45 minutes of homework/study time. These study halls are separated by subject and run by certified teaching staff.
The last hour of Valhalla is dedicated to enrichment activities. Students are given several options each day and they simply choose the activity that most interests them. Activities include PE, lego robotics, sewing, martial arts, science projects, dance, games, crafts, guest speakers and YMCA field trips. We are always changing and adding new enrichment activities in hopes that students will find and development talents and hobbies.
Valhalla ends at 5:20, at which time the students either walk home, get picked up by a guardian or ride the bus home. Busses are provided to for students who live in district boundaries.
We encourage parent communication and involvement. Please let us know if we can help your student with missing school work. Please keep an eye out for Valhalla parent nights also.
Please see our monthly calendar as Valhalla days are subject to change. Please direct any questions to Lyndsey Gill, program director, at email@example.com or (208) 585-3251.
According to Idaho Code and District Policy, eleven (11) hours are allowed during a school year for emergency closures. Any time missed beyond the eleven hours must be made up, by adding additional minutes each day or day(s) as an extension of this current school year. The Middleton School Board and Administration’s first concern is for the safety of our students and staff when making a decision to close school for inclement/unsafe weather conditions or for other reasons. The decision to close our schools is taken very seriously, as we realize that it has wide-spread ramifications that range from: missing instruction time, parent scheduling of day-care, to continuing district-wide costs -- all when school is not in session. Parents always have the privilege of keeping their child at home, if they believe it is in the best interest of their child’s safety, even when Middleton School District has determined that our schools will remain open. These absences will be treated as an ‘excused’ absence, if the parent notifies the school of their child’s absence and will be counted as a part of the total absences for the nine-weeks, semester and year.
The Superintendent or his designee will release information to Building Principals, Directors and Supervisors by 6 a.m. to inform them of our closure status due to inclement weather. Parents and students will receive their notifications on parents cell phone (texts or calls), emails via school messenger and also through the local media. Please listen to the radio or watch our local television stations, for updates during days of inclement weather.
(This delayed start is only to be used as a last alternative)
If the District has scheduled a delayed start, staff shall report as soon as safely possible. Classes would begin at 9:30 a.m. (one-hour+ delay) or 10:30 a.m. (two-hour+ delay). The number of hours school is to be delayed will be announced on as many radio and television stations as possible.
Parent – Teacher conferences will be held at the Middle School October 22nd & 23rd from 3:45 – 7:15 PM.
7th and 8th grade Teachers as well as elective teachers will be located in the Main Cafeteria. P.E. teachers will be located with the 6th grade Teachers over in Annex A cafeteria. Please plan to join us on one of those two nights. Thanks for all your continued support.
