Construction on State Highway 44 Canal Crossing in Middleton begins in late September
The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) will begin construction of a new canal crossing at State Highway 44 between 1st Avenue and Dewey Avenue in late September
The existing canal crossing is deteriorated and needs to be replaced to maintain safety and mobility for Middleton residents and the traveling public.
ITD will build the project in stages to reduce impacts to motorists. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained during construction and access to local businesses will remain open.
Here’s what to expect in the next few weeks:
Late-September – Mid-October
Crews remove sidewalk on north side of State Highway 44 and place temporary pavement
Traffic shifts to the north
Work occurs on the south side of State Highway 44
Demolition of the existing crossing as soon as the canal is dry
The project is scheduled to be complete in mid-spring 2019.
ITD will continue to update the public about the project. If you have questions, please email: Jennifer.email@example.com or call 208.334.8938.

Dear Purple Sage Community,
We are off and running already and it has been a wonderful start to the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you for all of your efforts in preparing your students for a successful first and second weeks. I am pleased with the low rate of tardiness so far and I encourage you to keep it up!
You should have noticed by now a new security procedure that we are utilizing concerning checking in if you visit the school. On the wall by Mrs. Schuler’s window you will find an iPad in a black case. Please use this iPad to sign in and then our office will give you a visitor sticker. Once you are in the system you can download a QR code onto your phone and then you can simply scan it in to the iPad each time you visit. I also ask that you please make sure to sign out when you leave the school, thank you for your patience and cooperation.
Like last year, we will keep the double glass doors locked once school begins to allow for only one point of access to our hallways. We also have a crosswalk and I would ask that if you choose to walk over to pick up your students after school that you please park in the front lot and use that crosswalk. The pickup line is not a good place to cross and we keep traffic moving through as fast and as safely as we can. Security and safety remain one of my top priorities so I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
You will notice a series of assessments that your student(s) will be given this year to monitor their academic progress. Grades K-3 all across Idaho will use a program called iStation this year for the Idaho Reading Indicator (IRI.) This is an assessment that students will use Chromebooks to take and this will occur during computer lab time. All grades will once again take a series of iReady math assessments to help guide math instruction and grades 4 and 5 will utilize iReady for various reading and ELA assessments. Lastly, grades 3 through 5 will again take the ISAT assessment in the Spring for both math and ELA. Please know that these assessments are valuable tools that we will use to avoid any surprises concerning academic progress and will help us boost student achievement by allowing us to adjust instruction so that it is even more effective.
Please know that I am always willing to listen to your thoughts and concerns and I can be reached by email or phone or you can try to catch me in my office. Here is to a great school year!
