3/15/20 - Middleton Schools will close early (Click for more information)

Dear MSD Parents/Guardians,

After thoughtful discussions with Idaho and local government and education officials Saturday and again today, the Middleton School District has decided to close public schools, effective immediately, through March 29, 2020. We will reassess the COVID-19 virus situation at this time to determine if schools will reopen or stay closed.

Although this is contrary to what some Treasure Valley school districts announced late Sunday, Middleton administration heard from several concerned citizens who urged closure the full week before spring break, scheduled for March 23-27, 2020.

Due to the timing of this decision Middleton’s administrative staff will be at the schools on Monday, March 16, from 9:00 am until noon to accommodate any students needing to gather items left at the schools. We ask that students and parents only come to the schools to obtain essential items.

The administration will continue monitoring the situation to determine the necessity of long-term planning in the event that Middleton schools will remain closed for a longer period of time.

Additionally, the Southern Idaho Conference decided Sunday that all athletics and activities will be postponed through March 29. It will be further evaluated by the SIC superintendents after this time.

Sincerely,
Kristin Beck Ed.S.
Human Resources and Communications Officer Middleton School District
