Middleton School District Parents and Community:
I want to bring you up to date on events within the district during this difficult time for our Middleton School District students, staff, and community.
Our school board held a special Board meeting this morning at 10 am. The purpose of this meeting was to update them on the events involving Halloween day costumes and a photo posting from Heights Elementary. No action could be taken at this Board meeting besides a statement concerning these events given to the public at the end of the meeting. Here is the statement from our school board.

The Middleton School District Board of Trustees statement in regards to the photo that was recently circulated.
This type of behavior has no place in education and certainly is not tolerated here at Middleton School District. This situation is being taken very seriously. We are in full support of our Superintendent and administrative staff as a full investigation is being conducted, and are awaiting the results of the investigation to assure appropriate disciplinary action is taken. We care about each of our students, their education, and their safety. This is an unfortunate incident of very poor judgment. Yet it is not indicative of the Middleton School District or our teachers as a whole. We have caring staff members who go the extra mile for our students on a daily basis. We are committed to learning and improving our district from this incident and to continue with our daily mission of Every Child Learning every day, and will do everything we can to insure their success.
Middleton School Board
As always, I really appreciate our school boards dedication to our students, staff, while representing you in all areas of our mission.
Important Plan for ALL our MSD staff
The events of this week we take very seriously. As hard as these events are for ALL involved, we must learn from this and be better as an entire staff for our students, parents, and the community we represent. Effective immediately those involved have been put on administrative leave and we need to please respect their privacy during this time. We are still in an investigative stage of these events. We will ensure our students have the appropriate staffing during this time. Below is our immediate plan for our MSD staff starting today.
- All staff involved in the incident are on administrative leave.
- To ensure safety for all, there will be daily presence of security at Heights Elementary.
- To support the social-emotional well-being, for students, staff and parents, the District Crisis Team will be present at Heights Elementary.
- This Wednesday, November 7, there will be an all staff meeting for the purpose of cultural sensitivity training. Training will continue throughout this school year and at the start of each school year moving forward.
- Effective Monday, November 5th, extra administrative presence will be Heights Elementary.
- The District will adjust and provide resources and information as the week(s) progress and take immediate action as needed.
Middleton is under a microscope, and I view this as an opportunity to learn and grow from this incident, and even more create enhanced learning environments where Every Child Learning Every Day is wrapped in Every Child Shown Kindness, Respect and Love Everyday.

Each and Every Day
Possibly the best we could hope for. I don't presume to know what should be done, but given that the district is taking this so very seriously, I'm okay with it if the idiot teachers are not fired.
