A Message from the Principals

Hello Millbridge Families,

Greetings! As the nights seem longer, flowers begin to bloom, the grass is growing and the weather is starting to become warmer we are seeing so many happy students. We are in the third trimester already! WOW! Staff and students continue to dig in and produce high-achieving work. We extend our thanks for your continued support and teamwork to create lifelong learners and caring, helpful, respectful, and responsible citizens. Speaking of, we will be celebrating yet another Cub of The Month next week. We encourage you to have discussions at home about how to display those bear paws.

Please be reminded that if you are dropping your child off to follow the carpool loop. Please do not bring your child to the main entrance prior to 9:00 am. As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. Our continued thanks for your cooperation, support, and participation in your child's education.

Educationally yours,

Mrs. Massey and Mrs. Murphy

Delran Special Education Council meeting - Wednesday, March 29

The next Delran Special Education Council meeting will be held:

Wednesday, 3/29/23

Location: Millbridge Elementary School Cafeteria as well as Google Meet

Time: 6-7pm

Google Meet links will be provided prior to the meetings.

Jessica Johnstone and Michelle Kerper are both BCBA’s in the Delran School District. They will provide parents with an overview of positive behavior supports used in schools to decrease concerns with behavior and ensure students are successful. General strategies to support students socially, emotionally, and behaviorally that are not specific to a disability or diagnosis will be discussed. Topics such as a daily schedule, regulating emotions, positive reinforcement, visual supports, self-help skills, and motivation will be discussed. Lastly, all questions will be answered regarding implementation of these strategies, so parents feel confident on how to approach behavior challenges at home.

School Calendar - Revised

May 26 and May 30 are now closed days for all students and staff. These are unused snow days that have been given back, provided no emergency closures between now and then.


Millbridge Teachers, Megan Jones and Kathryn Schneider, have been named 2022 Exemplary Elementary Educators for the State of New Jersey. The award is among the most prestigious that can be bestowed to a New Jersey educator.

Any medication needs to be brought in by the parent/guardian, along with the prescription, and given directly to the nurse. Please do not send any medication in with the student.

Student Absences

Please be advised that according to our board policy, students need a doctor's note for an absence to be excused. Below you will find the exceptions which can also be found in our board policy.

Exceptions will be made for excused absences which include: (1) illness as certified by a physician within five days; (2) student’s required attendance in court inclusive of documentation; (3) excused religious observances; (4) Take Your Child to Work day; and (5) necessary and unavoidable medical or dental appointments that cannot be scheduled at a time other than the school day. Absences due to vacation are unexcused and are discouraged.

Snack at School

In order to ensure that all students with life-threatening allergies are safe at school, we ask that everyone adhere to this safe snack list.

Important Information: Breakfast and Lunch

Breakfast & Lunch can be purchased. We encourage parents begin an account and place money on their student account. Please click here for the breakfast order form.


Each year, we have countless items ranging from winter coats to backpacks that are lost. We strongly encourage parents to LABEL EVERYTHING with your child’s name, teacher and bus letter. Lost and found items are kept in the gym and put out periodically throughout the year.

Become an Observer in Canvas

If you have not already done so, please be sure to become an observer for your child(ren) in Canvas. The information below is from the district's webpage and will help you become a co-observer. If you have multiple children, you will be able to see everything for them in one place. Teachers will be providing a weekly overview for parents and notes for the week in Canvas.

To enable co-enrollment (observer) in Canvas K-12 your student will need to generate a pairing code and you will need to link the account. A parent may pair (link) to multiple children in the same parent (observer) account.

You will need to set up the pairing through a web browser like Chrome.You cannot enable pairing or observing through the parent app.

Co-enrollment means you can view grades, upcoming assignments and due dates, missing work, and teacher communication.

Teachers can send individual, group, and course-wide messages to students and parents.

Once you're co-enrolled, you'll want to set-up your notification preferences. Click here for instructions on setting up your notification preferences.
