The Midd-West Board of Directors approved a schedule change on Monday, September 28th. There will now be two half-days during the month of October so please plan accordingly. On Friday October 9th, and Friday October 23rd, the Midd-West School District will dismiss at 12:15. All students will be served a lunch prior to departing on these dates.
The bus assignments have been successfully uploaded to the Sapphire portal and ready for parents to view. The only post cards that are being mailed this year are for the kindergarten students. If you are having issues accessing the portal, you may contact the building secretary where your child is enrolled for assistance. As change requests and new enrollments are being processed daily, please recheck the portal closer to the first day of school for any updates. Thank you
Parents of incoming Kindergarteners: Due to COVID-19 and the state requirements currently, we regretfully have to cancel Kindergarten Camp this year. You will be contacted In the next two weeks about setting up an appointment for your child to be screened individually and for any paperwork to be collected. We apologize for this inconvenience. Looking forward to seeing you all in August. Stay healthy!
The Midd-West School District Board of Directors and the Administration understands that there are many concerns about what a return to school may look like in August due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. School districts around the state are required to approve a Return to School Plan and submit that plan to the Pennsylvania Department of Education before returning to any type of in-person instruction in the fall. In an attempt to involve our stakeholders and have an open dialogue about what a return to school should look like in the fall, the Midd-West School District would like to invite community members to our buildings to learn about our tentative, draft plans. This way, we can learn how these plans may impact our families and attempt to find ways to make the plans reasonable, safe, and effective for all our constituents. The meetings are scheduled on the following evenings. Individuals may attend a session at the building that best meet their needs. The same information will be presented at each site so there is no need to attend multiple sessions. Date Time Location July 8th 6:00 pm Midd-West High School Auditorium July 9th 6:00 pm Middleburg Elementary School Gymnasium July 13th 6:00 pm Midd-West Middle School Gymnasium July 14th 6:00 pm West Snyder Elementary School Auditorium The following link takes you to a sign-up sheet for each building’s evening event. We ask that you complete the sign-up for each member of the family that plans to attend. We are trying to limit group to 250 individuals. We will schedule additional evenings, if needed, to host additional participants. Thank you for your understanding of this! https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=zgCATiv4uEGfT4IC6Vco4hZWlT1JV8xDq58YA6far1FUQVYwQVBSVkNZUUhCRTJSVzE4Tk5GUE5QOC4u Lastly, the link at the bottom, takes you to a rough draft of the Midd-West School District’s Return to School Plan. This is still very much a work in progress. It is designed to be flexible, individualized, responsive, and adaptable for each family. If you have questions about the plan, but cannot attend any of the meetings, please send those to our email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will attempt to answer them promptly and generate a list of frequently asked questions for everyone to access. Scenarios for Fall Learning 2020 - Draft https://5il.co/hqby

Instruction for Sapphire Log On
Good evening West Snyder Families, In an effort to support your child educationally during this extended school closure the Midd-West School District will begin to share mobile content for enrichment and review on March 30. Teachers will be posting resources and activities on Sapphire. Please note: Internet access is required to access Sapphire. Since our elementary students do not have their own devices we have arranged for elementary families to borrow district laptops. If you have a child in grades 6-12 as well as an elementary student, we are asking that the elementary child be allowed to use their older sibling’s computer. For families with students only at the elementary school we will assign you a laptop to borrow for the duration of the school closing. We will be issuing 1 laptop per 3 children. If you have a laptop or desktop at home that you would prefer your child use, that is great, you are not required to use a district laptop. If you are not borrowing a laptop your child’s Sapphire information will be sent to you via his/her classroom teacher on Thursday, March 26. Laptop distribution will occur tomorrow, March 24 and Wednesday March 25 from 11 am – 1 pm at West Snyder Elementary School. Please follow the signs posted as we will follow a drive-thru format with all individuals remaining in their vehicles. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding. We want to continue to support you, your child, and your family during this difficult time. Laptop distribution will be tomorrow, March 24 and Wednesday March 25 from 11 am – 1 pm at West Snyder Elementary. This also coincides with our lunch distribution so plan to grab a bagged lunch while you are here. Thank you, Erin Sheedy
