Dear Mustang Families,

Once again, as you watch the news and images of those areas hit so hard by the hurricanes for which we have braced for the spin-off weather, this makes you so appreciative that we weren’t nose-on with them. Those images certainly put our hardships into perspective. Our thoughts truly are with these people!

If you are experiencing difficulty from these weather events, please be sure to let us know whether. You may call me, your child’s teacher, or talk with our School Counselors. Yes, our heavy rains and winds most definitely generated problems and hardships. There are resources within the District and our Lexington Community. Please be sure to communicate with us!

As you know, Thursday afternoon was a designated half-day for Parent/Teacher Conferences after school and this was canceled. Teachers who were able were given permission to extend conference schedules into Friday afternoon or Tuesday afternoon next week. They are working through their own schedules and commitments to select which half-day will work for the rescheduling of conferences. Regardless, we all know that one (1) day is not enough time to conference with 100% of their parents so your conference may be scheduled on a totally different day. Thank you for your understanding and adaptability!

While the Governor closed our schools for Hurricane Florence and the traffic of evacuations, the District closed schools for Hurricane Michael. What a great call! The safety of our students is the priority! The blasting rain and winds along with falling trees and flooded roads could have been disastrous. One tragedy is one too many! Today, I appreciate the inconvenience of rescheduling conferences and making up another school day.

We are a blessed family at Midway! You are a valued member of this family!!!

Yours truly,

Jan Fickling, Principal of Midway Elementary
