Welcome to the Middletown Unified School District for the 2010-2011 school year.  We look forward to the opportunity to provide your children with an outstanding education.  We believe that children come first in Middletown and it is our intention to do nothing less than the BEST for our students.  We live in the Age of Accountability in education and that means that we must all be accountable for helping our students reach the high academic standards set by the State of California and the Middletown Unified Board of Trustees.  We are partners in this endeavor, and we value your participation, support, and input.  Please contact your child’s school with your comments and suggestions.

 As a parent/guardian, your most important role is to be involved in your child’s education at all grade levels. Visit your child’s school. Meet with teachers. Create a home environment that encourages learning. Make reading a priority. Time after time, research shows that when parents are actively involved with their children's education, student achievement improves, self-esteem is greater, drop-out rates are reduced and children are more socially adjusted. 

Schools do not provide accident insurance for students hurt on school grounds.  If parents do not have private health insurance, please contact your school office for a plan made available for all students.

School begins Tuesday, August 17, 2010 and ends on Friday, May 27, 2011.  Student’s attendance is absolutely necessary if students are to reach grade and subject level standards. If you have doctor or dentist appointments, please plan them so that your child attends school at least half of the day.  Unexcused absences for shopping or other non-medical reasons will not allow students to meet our challenging California State Standards. 

Middletown Unified School District is committed to providing outstanding educational opportunities for all of our students.  Through working together with staff, students and parents we can achieve our goal.  I urge all parents to support our children and our schools.
