Message from the Superintendent

September 18, 2020

Hello Millwood Families!
Our virtual start is finally leveling out!  We have handed out over 700 devices to families to assist in this new way of learning.  If your child(ren) is still having trouble, please call our Technology Assistant, Mr. Edwards at (405) 409-2450.  He can help with resetting passwords, troubleshooting tech issues, and walking parents or grandparents through what the child needs to do to log on.  For students in grades PreK-2, we are working to get technology out for their use soon.
 
As we get closer to the end of the first quarter, we will be sending out a survey again to parents to determine how virtual learning is progressing and how we could potentially bring students back next semester.   Our goal is to return to in-person learning soon, but we need your feedback in helping to determine when that could be.  The survey will be coming out in the next few days, so please take a few minutes to fill it out.
 
Beginning next week, we will have baseline testing happening both on campus and in person for some grades.  It is VERY important that your child participates in this.  It will allow us to start to get students re-exposed to the school building, while also helping them learn and practice safe and healthy interactions with their peers.  Our staff will be taking all CDC recommended precautions to keep everyone safe during this process.  If you do not feel comfortable sending your child to campus, please contact the office at your child’s school to make other arrangements.
 
Sincerely,
Cecilia Robinson-Woods
Superintendent
