As the first day of school quickly approaches, Middletown Area School District is busy making preparations for the start of the 2014-2015 school year. Below you will find everything you need to know to help your child(ren) have a successful start to the new year.
SCHOOL CALENDAR: This year MASD kicks off with A FULL WEEK OF SCHOOL, Monday, August 25, 2014 through Friday, August 29, 2014. All schools will be CLOSED on the following Monday, September 1, 2014, in observance of Labor Day. The complete 2014-2015 Academic Calendar can be found here.
STUDENT HOMEROOM AND BUS ASSIGNMENTS: Individual student packets were sent via U.S. mail and are expected to be delivered to households during the week of August 11, 2014. If you don’t receive your child’s letter by Thursday, August 14, 2014, please contact your child’s school. For parents with current PowerSchool accounts, this information can also be accessed by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
STUDENT INFORMATION UPDATE: For the safety and welfare of your children, it is important that the District has up-to-date student information. By updating your child’s record, it ensures we have accurate emergency contact information and provides you the opportunity to complete parental consent agreements for field trips and media release.
The student verification process will be available beginning Monday, August 11, 2014. This year we have streamlined the process for your convenience. To get started, please log into your PowerSchool Parent account and follow the instructions on the welcome screen. If you do not have an account, your back-to-school packet will guide you through the process of creating and setting up your PowerSchool Parent account. Please be sure to complete this process for each child before the first day of school.

To assist you in finding pertinent information, we have included everything in one location for quick reference.
