Vehicles Parked in Fire Lanes
The Midlothian Fire Marshal will issue citations to owners of unattended vehicles (or tow vehicles) parked in the designated fire lanes at all MISD campuses and facilities. These fire lanes must be kept clear for access during emergency situations. Attended vehicles, especially during drop-off and pick-up times, are allowed to be in the fire lanes as long as they can readily be moved. Thank you for helping Midlothian maintain proper emergency management procedures.
Skyward mobile app available for MISD Staff
Midlothian ISD employees can access their accounts, requisitions, PO’s, paychecks, and time off information through the Skyward Mobile Access app. The app saves the login and password for fast, easy access. The free app can be downloaded on the iTunes App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, and works with iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone and Android mobile devices. If you need your login information, please contact Kim Melton.
MISD conveniently has a print shop with one duplicator and three copiers designed to produce large amounts of print jobs. The print shop stores different colors of paper: light blue, light pink, yellow, light green, and goldenrod. All other color of paper, transparencies and card stock must be provided by the sender. We have two different sizes of white paper: 8½X11 and 8½X14. The district encourages teachers and staff to submit print jobs that exceed 15 or pages per master to the print shop.
