Winter Weather Procedures

Midlothian ISD administrators constantly monitor inclement weather situations. Occasionally, the weather becomes a factor beyond our control and can cause changes in the daily schedule. Weather conditions are carefully reviewed before classes are canceled, started late, or dismissed early. School personnel and transportation plans are in place to assure the well being of students affected by the decision to dismiss students early. Parents are to be reminded to review the Midlothian ISD bad weather guidelines.


Longbranch named to the Texas Honors Circle

Longbranch Elementary School has been named to the Texas Honors Circle. The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts created this award to recognize public school districts and campuses that have achieved significant student academic growth while keeping spending relatively low compared to peer schools.

Volunteers Who Care about Our Kids

Posted: January 5, 2015

Each January, we pause to express our appreciation for a very special group of volunteers: the Midlothian ISD School Board of Trustees. The 2014-2015 Board members are Todd Hemphill (president), Keith Hitt (vice-president), Matt Sanders (secretary), Duke Burge, Jim Mentzel, Tom Moore and Carl Smith (trustees).

Usually, we don't think of school board members as school volunteers, but they do in fact volunteer to serve. School board members give their time, energy, and counsel to the school district without pay. They take on the job of governing the district - making the best decisions they can for our children - with the full understanding that they will receive only the satisfaction of their contribution.
