WELCOME TO MARCH (and dare I say Spring)!
Our 3rd semester ends on Friday, March 13, 2020. The students are working to ensure the best semester grades possible. Please encourage them to attend school regularly and complete their work.
With the unpredictability of March weather, I would like to remind you that Millard Public Schools may call a snow day, an eLearning day or a two-hour late start should we face inclement weather. If a late start day is called, students will report to school at 10:00 am. Buses will pick up students two hours later than the regularly scheduled time.
MARCH 16 - 20, 2020 - Spring Break (no school)
MARCH 30, 2020 - Semester 4 begins!
Attention all 2019-2020 graduates. Information about ordering a cap & gown is available in the library. All students planning on participating in the graduation ceremony for their home school in May need to order a cap and gown.
Need more graduation information?
Please contact your home school.
Whatever It Takes (WIT)—News
We have an altered schedule every Wednesday which we call "Whatever It Takes" (WIT). Students who are passing all their classes are eligible to participate in our weekly activity. If your student is eligible, you will receive an email indicating what the activity will be for the week. We have planned various activities that incorporate college and career experiences for our students. The activities are chaperoned by our teachers and the students will be transported on a school bus. If you prefer your son/daughter not participate, please call our office at 402-715-8468. We are excited for these opportunities for our students and hope this inspires them to work hard!
2020 Bond Information
On May 12th, 2020 Millard Public Schools is asking voters to consider a bond to
address district repairs and maintenance. The average age of Millard’s schools is 38
years old. All together, the district’s buildings are valued at an estimated $700 million
dollars. To protect the community’s ongoing investment, the district is asking for a $125
million dollar bond. This would raise the levy approximately one cent. A cent of
additional levy would cost an estimated $20 per year on a $200,000 home. The funds
would support projects in six areas: safety and security, major renovations, capital
equipment replacements, energy efficiency projects, summer maintenance projects and
furniture replacements. All 35 schools will be impacted by the bond.
