Dear Millridge Families
We have (almost) successfully completed our second week of the school year, and our Millridge Staff is delighted to see the enthusiasm and engagement of our students. Our students are working hard, have settled into their learning environments, and are building friendships and community with students and teachers. It is wonderful seeing students enjoying the process of learning, and building community. As we settle into our routines, it is important to reflect on the progress we’ve made and look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead!!
We want to thank our families for all YOU have done to make our first week of school successful. It is so wonderful seeing so many of you during arrival and dismissal, and was equally as wonderful meeting so many of you at Meet the Teacher, and our Orientations for New Students and Kindergarten. We are looking forward to seeing our entire school community together at our Wildcat Welcome Back event!!

Hello Mustang families,
Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! We would like to initiate our typical car tag process for parent pick-up. Please fill out this sign-up form ONLY IF YOU ARE PICKING UP YOUR CHILD AT THE END OF THE DAY in the car line, on a REGULAR BASIS during the school year. If your child takes a bus home, or will get picked up for an appointment every so often, then you do not need to get a car tag. We have changed car tag colors for the new school year so your tags from last year ARE NO LONGER VALID.
The survey questions below enable you to type in the names of multiple children in the family who will need a car tag. There will be one/two car tags per family (per your request), and one car tag for each student's backpack in the family. If you have one child in your family, you only need to fill out the first three questions. Additional questions are for additional children in the family.
***NOTE: If your child has a new teacher with no name listed yet, please put NEW as your homeroom teacher's last name.
Pick up of car tags will be in our lobby area on Thursday and Friday, August 24th and 25th during your scheduled meetings with your child's teacher. Materials will be clearly labeled and placed on tables in the main lobby for families to pick up.
If you have any questions, please contact our main office at 440-995-7250.
Late Arrival: After 8:15 am
Important Information: Annual OLR Updates
Please update each student's OLR (online registration) in Infinite Campus prior to the start of school. Even if there are no changes you must go through each screen for each student to verify all information is current. This process is not complete until you press the submit button. This needs to be complete for students to engage on their 1:1 devices and participate in field trips.
