A Message from the Principals

Hello Millbridge Families,

We can't believe it is almost February. This school year is flying by! We had some wonderful things happening at our school recently. This week we celebrated our Respectful Cubs. Next month we are recognizing the character trait caring. Please continue to talk to your children about ways to be a caring friend.

We also had our therapy dog, Roxie visit our school. The students were very excited about her visit. We are looking forward to our February activities and celebrations as we get closer to the 100th day of school and Valentine's Day.

As always, we appreciate your support. We are one school and one community, coming together to learn. Your voice is always valued and welcome.

Educationally yours,

Mrs. Massey and Mrs. Murphy

The Delran Elementary PTO will be having a skate party at The Rink on Thursday, February 16th from 6-8:30pm. Admission is $3 and skate rental is an additional $5. All students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. A flyer will come home next week.

Spring Conferences

Spring Conferences were originally scheduled for March 17th. This has been changed to March 16th. Spring conferences will be in the afternoon and evening and are by invite only. More information will be provided as the date gets closer. We wanted to make you aware of the date change.


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.

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.
