Greetings, Midlothian Community. This is your principal, Shawn Abel, with a special message as we gear up for our return from winter break.
I want to wish every member of the Midlo Community a happy new year! I look forward to a memorable 2021.
We understand that frustration over grades has been somewhat ubiquitous during the first marking period of this very challenging and unique school year. Many parents and students are struggling with lower grades and learning challenges this year as we adapt to our new environment. Virtual teaching and learning is new to all of us, and as we learn, we can make adjustments to help our students be successful. We have some new school-wide and potentially class specific procedural suggestions we wish to share with everyone as we head into the winter break.
Please understand that these changes are implemented in an effort to help our students maximize their potential in a supportive and caring learning environment. We will continue to engage all stakeholders as we update and modify our procedures to best meet the needs of our students.
