A Message from the Principals

Dear Millbridge Families,


It was great to see so many people out at PTO Bingo. We are very excited to be launching our new visitor management system this week. Information is below and will be sent in a separate communication as well. Please be sure to review this carefully.


Have a fantastic, long weekend. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

NEW PROCEDURE- STARTS IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!

Starting Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Millbridge will be piloting a new visitor management system, which will be implemented district-wide in the fall of 2019. This results in a new procedure for dropping students off, picking students up and all visitors who are entering the building. You must have a Government Issued ID, which will be scanned, as a form of identification. You will not be allowed to drop off a student, pick-up a student, or visit a classroom or any part of the building, without it. Also, anyone picking up your child MUST be in Realtime. There will be no exceptions. If you do not know your Parent Portal information in order to add, change or remove contacts, please call the main office.

Integrated Preschool Program Lottery Drawing - due 1/30/19

There will be an Integrated Preschool Lottery held on February 1, 2019, at the BOE. The deadline for the application is January 30, 2019. For more information, please visit our website at http://mes.delranschools.org/parents/virtual_backpack/january_2019
