Message from the Superintendent
August 23, 2016
Dear Millwood Families,
Welcome back to school! We are so excited for the many new faces on our campuses and especially thrilled to see so many returning families! Our first week of school has got off to a great start and I want to personally thank all of our parents who are working hard to ensure that their children are in school on time daily. As many of you know, we are implementing a new “Zero Tardy” practice. This was necessary because in the past years we have had a real problem with students arriving to school on time. As a result, many elementary students are missing out on important time in the morning with their peers and middle and high school students miss out on seat time that is necessary for credit. Please continue to do all that you can to ensure that your child arrives on time every morning.
I also want to thank all of our parents for your patience during pick up time at the end of the day. Due to increased traffic with the addition of Langston to our campus, we felt it necessary to ensure that traffic is controlled and therefore limits the potential for students to have to walk through busy parking lots at the end of the day. I realize that this may not be the most convenient situation for all parents, but it ensures safety for our children, which is our number one priority. Thank you again for your patience and understanding with this matter.
Lastly, I will be unveiling our Strategic Plan at our District Wide Open House on September 15, at 6 p.m., in the Millwood Auditorium. Please come out and hear the goals that the administration, staff, parents and community partners have identified to map our way towards improved student achievement. I hope to see you all there.
As always, we appreciate all that you all do to continue to make Millwood great!
We are Millwood… Achieve!
Cecilia J. Robinson-Woods, Superintendent
