5th Grade Music Performance - Come see Heights Elementary 5th graders perform holiday selections in their musical performance on December 12th, at 1:30 p.m., in the gym.
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.
Please plan to attend Heights' Open House on Tuesday, August 19th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet their teachers and other staff members. Students are also encouraged to bring their supplies, so we are ready to go on Wednesday.
The first day of school is Wednesday, August 20th. First bell is 8:10 a.m. To help alleviate congestion, if you plan on driving your student, please plan on coming early. We have supervision at beginning at 7:50, and we anticipate many cars coming through.
Release time each Wednesday (including the first day of school) is 2:00 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
