The time for inclement weather is upon us and we would like to remind everyone of the district’s protocol for weather-related closings and delays (visit the district webpage and/or Facebook page for weather related closings). In addition, we continue to utilize local media channels to announce delayed openings and closings.
If school is closed, due to inclement weather, the day is a non-instructional day, whether or not your child is learning remotely. Students are not expected to login to the classrooms, and will not be assigned additional classwork on snow days (non-instructional days).
In the event of a delay, elementary school students should log in later than they normally would (depending on the type of delay - two or three hour), and their teachers will adjust their schedule accordingly. This snow-day plan is fluid and subject to revision. If there are any changes we will promptly communicate changes/revisions to the school community. Please note, this information regarding delays and closings is connected to the current period of pause.
Thank you for your support and understanding. Closing school is never an easy decision; however, the safety of our students and staff will always be utmost on our mind.

Directions to Middletown High School

Cars may not be removed from the student parking lot during the school day except with permission from an administrator.
Students will NOT enter or park in the teachers' lot, the Board of Education lot, or other restricted areas. Those students who park in restricted areas will be towed at their expense and lose all parking privileges.
If space allows, juniors will be assigned parking spaces on a first come, first serve basis. Violation of any of the above regulations will result in a revocation of the parking permit and a loss of parking privileges.
