A Message from the Principals

Hello Millbridge Families,

We hope all of you had a restful, relaxing and healthy Thanksgiving break. Happy December! As the winter weather approaches, this time of year brings up warm feelings. We hope that all of you are feeling the same. Speaking of the colder weather, please make sure your children are dressed for the weather. They will be going outside as long as possible. We believe having that social time is very important. We feel that the relationships that are formed during this time are what matters most.

This month we are discussing the bear paw character trait, Helpful. Please help us in our efforts to talk to your students about ways to display being helpful. Teachers are observing and are constantly monitoring to decide who will be our next Cub of The Month.

As we approach the holiday season, I hope that we can hold the ones we love a little closer, speak a little kinder as we interact with each other day to day, and never take each other for granted.

Educationally yours,

Mrs. Massey and Mrs. Murphy

Report Cards

Report Cards will be availlable to view on the portal starting at 5pm on December 16.


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.

Parking Lot Safety

Parents, please be mindful when walking through the property to remain on the sidewalks and to use the crosswalks. If you are walking with a child, please have contact with them at all times. Please do not let children run in the parking lots, as this is a safety issue. All of the parking lots have staff and visitors entering and leaving at different times throughout the day. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

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.
