Keeping Students Safe: Parking Lot Procedures

In an effort to ensure the safety of students as well as families and staff, we would like to review the parking lot guidelines. Please be sure to share these guidelines with those who may be dropping off or picking up your students. Thank you for your consideration and adherence to these guidelines.

1.  Please slow down. Speeds in the lot should be 5 mph or less, especially during drop-off and pickup.
2. Once you pass Oak Street on the west side of the building, all traffic is one way. The only exit at that point will be going north on Chapel St.
3. Please do not make U-turns off the curb in the kindergarten pickup area. Proceed north and exit the lot on Oak St. or Chapel St.
4. Double/Triple parking is not allowed. This happens frequently in the kindergarten and preschool areas. Wait for a space along the curb to become available before you drop off your child.
5. Parents who need to park and escort students into the building should use a parking stall. Do not park your car at the curb – this area is for drop-off only.
6. Use the crosswalk to cross the parking lot, and teach your students to do the same.
7.  Please be respectful of school staff directing traffic in the parking lot. They are there trying to keep kids safe.
8. Allow plenty of time for pick-up/ drop-off. Come early to avoid peak traffic if you have an appointment or other obligation.

Midvale Elementary Parking Lot

Area #1: All traffic entering from Oak Street must turn right and make a U-turn in the area labeled #2 on the map
Area #2: This is the designated U-turn area for traffic entering from Oak St. Northbound traffic should allow cars to make the U turn and merge into the drop off lane at this point.
Area #3: All traffic in the Midvale parking lot is one way. No cars should enter the parking lot from Chapel St in Area #3. Traffic may enter the Midvale lot off of Wasatch St. or Oak St.
Area #4: This area is closed to two way traffic. Cars are not able to pass from the elementary lot to the middle school lot.
Area #5: Elementary school parents who wish to pick up in the middle school parking lot must wait in a designated parking stall. If the stalls closest to the elementary school are full, parents will need to park in the middle school lot located further to the East.
Area #6: The faculty/staff parking lot should not be used as a pickup/drop-off area.


Reminders for the Week of April 19-23, 2021

Hello Midvale Elementary families! We have a few notes for you for the week of April 19-23:

  • Tomorrow, Tuesday, is our Mobile Food Pantry, starting at 3:05pm. Families, we will try to hold our event in the front of the school, weather permitting. If we must hold it inside, you may enter through the front door, with a mask, and follow the directions to pick up your food. Your students may pick up the food for your household, but be aware that it can be quite heavy for younger students to carry, especially if they are walking.

  • Tomorrow evening is our Tuck You In Tuesday Reading. Check on ParentSquare or Facebook around 7:00pm for the link to the story!

  • This week is Volunteer Appreciation Week! Even in this unusual year, we have continue to have the support of individuals and groups in our community who have supported our students, families and staff. We want to extend our thanks to our PTA members, School Community Council members, Family Learning Center participants, RSL players and staff, United Way, Savage Services, Five.12 Foundation, For the Kids, and so many more.

  • RISE end-of-year testing started today for some of our students. See the tips below to help students do their very best work:

Make sure you get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and make the morning of testing as relaxing as possible by arriving to school on time (8:20 so you can line up for the 8:25 bell).

Focus and pace yourself without rushing. It’s important to take your time and read each question carefully.

If the test questions seem hard, that mean you are doing well. Just like the ACT college entrance exam, the RISE test is computer adaptive, which means it adapts to your abilities by proposing harder questions when you get something correct.

Testing skills are life skills. In college and at work, you will face pressure to perform and meet deadlines, and testing is no different. It’s really about demonstrating competency. You have worked hard. Now is your chance to show it.

Celebrating Art at Midvale Elementary

Ms. Liz McConkie’s Midvale Elementary art students grades 2-5 created three books about themselves to compliment the Social-Emotional Learning goals of the school. Accordion books featured students’ favorite things, Pop-up books showcased their talents, and Tiny Rooms (diorama) books were inspired by goals they have for their future. Enjoy this amazing peek into the creative minds and work of our students!
