Classes Resume


Posted September 28, 2021
Dear Parents and Guardians of Midland Elementary-Middle School Students:

The Midland Borough School District currently has 13 positive COVID-19 cases in the District; 12 students and 1 staff member.  Additionally, there are currently 20 presumptive cases in the District.

The District has seen a previously unimaginable number of COVID-19 students in the past 7 days. The number of COVID-19 students and staff in our school building over the past 14 days has now exceeded the threshold at which partial closure is recommended by the PA Department of Health.  For this reason, grades 3rd through 8th only will suspend in-person instruction starting Wednesday, September 29, 2021 through October 11, 2021.  

To be clear, there is no change in the instructional model for students in grades K4, K5, 1st and 2nd.  These students will report for in-person instruction as normal.

Finally, please help us to resume in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year by monitoring your child's symptoms, communicating health concerns to the school nurse, and keeping kids home when they have even one symptom of illness, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or are being tested for COVID-19.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to our School Nurse, Beth Calahan at 724-643-8650 ext 215, if you have any questions or concerns.

Below you will find information on meal delivery and pick-up for students in grades 3rd though 8th during remote instruction.  Please contact Yvette Jester, Nutrition Food Service Director, at 724-643-8650 ext. 238 for more informaiton or if you would like to place an order. 

Your assistance and understanding during this time is greatly appreciated.  It is my belief that, by working together, we can maximize educational opportunities for our students while mitigating the spread of COVID-19.  

Thank you.

Sean D. Tanner

ACT 66 OF 2021 
Student Grade Level Retainment Notification for the 2021-2022 School Year

On June 30, 2021, Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 66 of 2021 into law.  This legislation allows parents and guardians to elect to retain their child for the 2021-2022 school year at the same grade level their child was in during the 2020-2021 school year, regardless of whether the student earned enough credits to be promoted.  On July 6, 2021, PDE released the Act 66 Request Form for parents to submit their request if they choose to do so.  The legislation requires that Act 66 Request Forms are submitted to the student’s school district on or before July 15, 2021.  You may access a copy of the form at the Act 66 Form link or contact the Midland Borough School District at 724-643-8650 to receive a copy.  Act 66 Form    

ACT 66 permits the following for the 2021-22 school year:

  • A student who was enrolled during the 2020-21 school year may repeat their 2020-21 school year grade level in an effort to make up for any lost educational opportunities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, even if the student met the requirements to be promoted to the next grade level; and
  • A student with a disability who was enrolled during the 2020-21 school year and turned 21 (either during the 2020-21 school year or during the summer of 2021) may attend a school entity during the 2021-22 school year and receive services as outlined in their most recent Individualized Education Program (IEP) with all protections under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

More information on Act 66 of 2021 – Student Grade Level Retainment Guidance may be found on the PDE Website at the Act-66 Guidance link.  Act 66 Guidance

P-EBT Cards (2nd Stage)

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) was developed by Congress and is funded through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  The program gives students with free and reduced-price meal benefits through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) funding for meals they missed while being out of school during the pandemic.  Once believed to be a short term program, it has now transformed to a longer-term federal response to the national public health crisis. The P-EBT program was reauthorized to cover the entire 2020-2021 school year.  The Midland Borough School District is 100% free meals for all students, therefore, families who have children enrolled in the District are eligible to receive the second stage of the P-EBT program. The second stage will provide benefits for eligible students for the months of December 2020 - February 2021 and should begin around the second week of June 2021. The third stage of benefits are for eligible students for the months of March 2021 - May 2021.  If you received the first P-EBT card, your benefits for the second stage will be loaded onto that same card.  If your child enrolled in District after the first stage and you did not receive a P-EBT card for the second stage or if you have any questions or concerns, please call the resource line at 484-363-2137.  You may also submit a Pennsylvania P-EBT inquiry form via the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) website.  The Midland Borough School District staff is available to assist you with this process, so please reach out to us at 724-643-8650 and we will do our best to help you.  Thank you.

Important COVID-19 Updates
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT)
Families of school-aged children who receive free or reduced-priced meals while school is in session will be receiving P-EBT benefits.  The Midland Elementary-Middle School participates in the National School Lunch Program and is a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school.  CEP schools offer free meals to all students, regardless of income, therefore, our families were automatically enrolled in the program.  If a student’s family already receives benefits through SNAP or TANF and currently has an EBT card, they will not be issued a new card.  The existing card will be loaded with additional benefit.  For families that qualify under the program and do not have an existing EBT card, those families will receive a P-EBT card in the mail (one per family, when possible).

The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides temporary benefits, referred to as Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), to families of school-aged children who would receive free or reduced-priced meals if the school was in session.  The school must participate in the National School Lunch Program in order for children to be eligible for free or reduced-price meals and the student must have attended the school as of March 13, 2020. 

For more information on P-EBT, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Education P-EBT site at and click on Pandemic Electronic Transfer (P-EBT) Program link.
