MIDLOTHIAN ISD 2/14 UPDATE: Remote/Virtual Learning Monday 2/15 & Tuesday 2/16

Additionally, remote learning will be asynchronous allowing your student to do school work on his/her own time. We hope you find this helpful as you manage your work and home life. With concerns related to possible rolling blackouts or power outages due the increased demand to heat homes and offices, we will make adjustments as necessary.
