Superintendent's Message: Middle/High School Update for Oct. 4

Oct. 3, 2021 — Over the past few days, the Midlakes school community has come together to support one another during a very difficult time. On behalf of everyone at Midlakes, I want to express our sincere gratitude for your kindness and support. I ask that you continue to keep the Mangan-Isaacs family, as well as everyone who knew Erin, in your thoughts and prayers. 

As our school community continues to navigate this unexpected loss, it is important that we support the decisions of those staff and families who plan to attend the memorial service scheduled for Monday, Oct. 4.

Therefore, Midlakes Middle/High School will transition to remote learning tomorrow as we face staffing shortages that will prevent us from safely hosting in-person instruction. We will transition to remote learning for one day only for all students in grades 7-12. Students will follow a synchronous schedule, but some classes will provide asynchronous (independent) activities while others will provide live instruction via Zoom. All students in grades 7-12 will follow the regular daily schedule and sequence of classes.

Mr. Bai-Rossi and individual Middle/High School teachers will provide additional details for students and families through the Schoology platform, or other appropriate means. 

All Elementary School students and staff will participate in in-person instruction on Monday.

If you have any questions regarding this one-day switch to remote learning for students in grades 7-12, please reach out to Midlakes Middle/High School Principal Frank Bai-Rossi.  

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Matt Sickles, Superintendent
