Dear Millwood Families,
The 2019-20 school year has gotten off to an eventful start! We sincerely appreciate all of
our families for making it out to our Back to School Night. We did try something a little different
this year and realized that it may have been a bit overwhelming for some families. We are looking
to make some adjustments for next year so that we can ensure that the experience is meaningful
and enjoyable for all. We also appreciate your patience as we worked through our beginning of
the year parking and student pick up routines. It is truly a testament to our returning families for
holding us and new parents accountable to a smooth process.
As you all are aware, due to the storm on August 26th, we suffered damage to a roof-top
gas line that subsequently led to us having to cancel school later that week. I want to thank our
General Contractors that were on site due to our bond construction, Smith and Pickle for
supporting us through the process of addressing the issue so that we could resume school in a
timely manner. They worked relentlessly for two straight days to ensure that we could be fully
operational. It is because of community partners like Smith and Pickle that we are able to
respond to situations in an efficient and timely manner. The construction company is also moving
along with our renovations in MELA, the auditorium and the band room. An updated schedule of
construction times and locations will be available on our website soon.
As a reminder, our monthly board meeting will be held on Monday, September 9th at the
high school at 6 p.m. The Board meeting is a great opportunity to hear first hand what is
happening in the district and to have your voice heard. We are off to a great start of the 2019-20
school year and are excited to continue our work towards building Champions!
Sincerely,
Cecilia J. Robinson-Woods
