A Message from the Principals
Dear Millbridge Families,
I hope many of you enjoyed the warm weather conditions this week, especially after a week of very cold weather! If your teacher has spoken to you about coming in as a volunteer for our 100th day celebration on Tuesday the 12th, or a Valentine’s day party on Thursday the 14th, please remember to bring your valid government issued photo ID with you. We wanted to remind you that next week is a shorter week, with a single session (1pm dismissal) on Thursday the 14th and no school on Friday the 15th (staff-in-service) and Monday the 18th (President’s Day).
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs. Lowe & Mr. Blenderman

Important Safety Reminders Morning Drop-Offs
To better ensure the safety of our students and staff, there are a few reminders that we’d like to address in regards to student drop off in the loop outside the cafeteria:
The parking lot adjacent to the cafeteria near the student drop off loop is entrance only between 8:45 and 9:00 AM. If you have parked in this lot, you will not be allowed to exit until all students have safely exited the vehicles in the carpool lane.
Please have your child wait for assistance from staff prior to exiting the vehicle.
Parents should remain in their vehicle at all times during drop off to help expedite the flow of traffic in the morning and help ensure student safety.
If you wish to walk your child up to the school yourself, you must park in the lot directly outside the main entrance of the building and walk them to the crosswalk, then wait for assistance from a staff member.
We thank you for your cooperation in our efforts to keep our school community safe throughout this hectic time of day.
