Midlothian ISD is excited to continue online registration for the 2014-2015 school year. This process replaces the first day paper packet sent home at the beginning of each school year. An email was sent to the parent/guardian's primary email on each student's file. It has the student's Infosnap code login and web access information for each child. Parents will use the same login as last year.
Note: Middle school and elementary students' first day packets must be completed by the first day of school on August 25.
If parents are unable to complete this process online, there are computers in the A.H. Meadows Library for public use. (Library Hours: Mon. & Wed. 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Tues. & Thurs. 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m-4 p.m.)
For Infosnap questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-752-6850. If a parent/guardian did not receive his/her child's personalized email, please contact the child's campus.

On behalf of MISD, School Board president Todd Hemphill accepted three donations from Peggy Campos, MISD Band Booster president. The donations are 1) a title to a trailer for the Panther Regiment Band to transport equipment, 2) $100 to the Midlothian Education Foundation, and 3) $1,500 to MISD for the Dolores McClatchey Scholarship Fund that assists teachers to continue their college education and/or graduate degree.
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.
For parents of children with dyslexia, it is difficult to watch their child struggle to do what others may take for granted. In recent years, research – as well as mainstream media – has started to highlight the challenges faced by those with dyslexia and how some of the challenges of having this disability can build strengths that allow individuals to make outstanding contributions to various fields. This one-day conference of phenomenal speakers will highlight the most current research on dyslexia, provide practical tips and information on §504, and celebrate the promising future of those with dyslexia.

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.
