Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if my student forgot something?  
If your student forgot an item or lunch, please drop it off in the main office. To avoid classroom interruption, the office will call and leave a message in the teachers voicemail and your student will be sent to the office.

How do I inform the school when my student is absent?
When your child is absent, please call the attendance hotline (858) 748-0047 ext 2112

What if my student is tardy?
Students arriving late to school must come to the main office accompanied by a parent/guardian with a note stating the reason for their tardy. Parents may excuse up to three tardies for personal reasons per semester.

Please remember – Tardy students walking into class impacts the learning environment for everyone.  Please be on time.  

What are OCIS Contracts?
Should there be a planned absence of five days or more please see Gail Pride, in the front office, as soon as possible to set up a homework contract for the student. A contract should also be used for extended illnesses.  A minimum of one week is required to set up an OCIS Contract.

How late can my student remain on campus after school?
School dismissal times are 2:20 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and 12:40 on Friday.  Please be at school to pick up your child at that time; there is no supervision after-school. If it is not possible for you to pick up your student before this time, please note that ESS (Extended School Services) is available for a charge, from 6:30 am – 6:00 pm.

What if my student has no lunch?
It is a good idea to have emergency money in your child’s lunch account even if they usually bring their lunch to school.  There are times when lunches are forgotten or time is short and it can relieve the stress of trying to figure out what to do on those occasions.
How do I find out how much money is left in my students lunch account?
The main office does not have access to the lunch accounts so you may call PUSD food services office at (858) 668-2570 to get this information. Also, you can set up an account with School Lunch Payment Solutions.

Where are the lost and found items kept on campus?
If your student has lost a sweatshirt/jacket or any other item, Midland lost and found is located in the Cafeteria near the lunch tables.  Please be sure to check periodically, as the lost and found items are donated periodically. 

What if I want to talk to my student’s teacher? 
The best way to contact your student’s teacher is through email. Please see the staff contact listing.

What if I want to request homework for my student?
If you would like homework for a student that missed school, please email your student’s teacher.
