Bad Weather Make-Up Days Set for April 3 and May 22

Midlothian ISD bad weather make-up days are scheduled for Friday, April 3 and Friday, May 22. The state requires that school districts designate two bad weather make-up days on the district calendar. Since MISD was closed all day on February 23 and February 24 due to inclement weather, students and staff must attend school on April 3 and May 22 to make up for the missed days of instruction. MISD has applied for a waiver for the additional days missed.
