District Statement Regarding Plaques at Longbranch Elementary and Mt. Peak Elementary Schools

UPDATED: August 27, 2014; 9:00pm

UPDATE: As of today (August 27) the plaques at Longbranch Elementary and Mt. Peak Elementary are currently uncovered. We are unsure who uncovered them and at this time the district has no plans to recover them.

Midlothian ISD provides challenging and engaging opportunities for students to learn in a safe and caring environment.

On June 30, 2014, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter to the district on behalf of a concerned local resident in regards to a plaque located at Mt. Peak Elementary School. The FFRF requested that the plaque be removed due to its questionable constitutional nature. There is also a similar plaque located at Longbranch Elementary School.

Although MISD has not been threatened with a lawsuit, the school district's attorney advised that it would not prevail in court if it refused FFRF's request and a lawsuit followed. Consequently, the plaques were temporarily covered and will be replaced.

“As a District employee, my personal beliefs and opinions in this constitutional matter must be secondary to the current interpretation of the law of the land,” states Superintendent Dr. Jerome Stewart.

Questions and comments can be directed to the Communications Department at info@midlothian-isd.net or call (972) 775-8296, ext. 1037.

 

Fire Lane Enforcement

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.

 

MISD Transitions to New Phone System

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.
