Mill Creek Magic Messages

News and Updates from Mr. Ortman and Mr. Murtha 8/24/2022

Welcome to Mill Creek, New Families!

This past Monday, August 22, we held our annual New Family Ice Cream Social, which was an opportunity for our families coming to Kindergarten, 1st Grade, or as move-ins to get the "lay of land" at Mill Creek. Families and incoming students had an opportunity to see their classrooms and other spaces they will be using at Mill Creek. While we love our school and our building, some might tell you that their favorite part was the ice cream (it is hard to compete with ice cream)!

A warm welcome to our new families. We are glad to have you with us!

District Laptop and iPad Care

Central Bucks Innovation and Technology Department has asked us to communicate the following regarding District-issued laptop and iPad care...

  • Please encourage your children to use their laptop/iPad bags for carrying devices in school, at home, and to and from each location.
  • Please encourage your children to report issues/problems with their devices, so they can be properly address and fixed as soon as possible.
  • The laptop/iPad payment fee covers accidental damage. Intentional damage may result in a family being billed for the damage.

Schools will be communicating these messages in school as well.

We appreciate your support!

Inclement Weather Procedures for Car Riders - Dismissal

We ask that, on inclement weather days, car riders post a placard with the student(s) family last name, so we can call in names for quicker dismissal. We will do our best to send a message out earlier in the day if we believe inclement weather dismissal is necessary for car riders. Feel free to use the placard template below if you find it helpful.
