Important Information:
Seeing Eye Dog Fundraiser
Pennies for Puppies, Seeing Eye Fundraiser February 26-March 8

Long Hill PTO Enrichment Programs has arranged for the Seeing Eye to host two assemblies at Millington School on February 29th.  The students will learn the training process of the dogs, how they are matched with a visually impaired individual and how the dogs will assist them in daily life.  

In conjunction with these assemblies the PTO is hosting a Pennies for Puppies fundraiser at Millington school February 26-March 8.  Students can bring in loose change and it will be collected daily in grade specific containers near the front office.  Donations may also be made through this link https://seeingeye.donorsupport.co/-/NNFTCPDC?member=SLRJRVZZThrough this fundraiser Millington School hopes to sponsor a Seeing Eye puppy.

Thank you for supporting The Seeing Eye!

Sincerely,
Long Hill Twp PTO

Free COVID-19 test kits through HHS & US DOE

The Long Hill Township School District has signed up for free COVID-19 test kits from HHS and the USDOE. They will be distributed by the school nurses in each of our schools. Both students/parents and staff members may receive test kits. Our plan is to distribute kits to anyone that has symptoms consistent with COVID 19 that is home or sent home from one of our schools. The nurses will not be testing any individuals in their health offices. Distribution of kits will be based on availability.


Dismissal EMAIL Notification:
If you need to communicate to the school about dismissal or changes to dismissal, please email Mrs. Pepe at [email protected], Mrs. Mathews at [email protected], Mrs. Freeman at [email protected] and the Homeroom Teacher.  If one or more staff members is absent, this ensures we get the email. Thank you.

 


Outside Recess - We intend to go outside for recess so please make sure students are prepared with a jacket, gloves and hat for cooler temperatures.  



Morning Drop Off
- We ask that parents stay in their lane.  We have noticed cars driving around other cars dropping off by the 4th and 5th grade door.  Please remain in your lane for safety reasons. There is enough room for two cars to drop off at both the 2nd and 3rd grade drop off and the 4th and 5th. Please pull up to the start of the drop off zone so the car behind you can unload as well.

Another option is to drop off in front of the school for a quick drop off.  Students must walk on the sidewalk to walk across the parking lot with a staff member assisting.  


Volunteer Opportunities - Please consider supporting and volunteering with both The Long Hill PTO and the Long Hill Education Foundation.  You can access both organizations through the Parent tab of the website. 


Millington Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures:
Millington Drop Off Pick Up.docx

 

Please make sure students bring in a refillable water bottle. We have refillable stations for them to fill up at.  If they lost it, make sure you remind them to check the lost and found.
 

Student Dismissal: 
Car Line 3:07 - The car line is open until 3:35 so please stagger your times.
Walkers will exit the building at 3:12 - Students can be picked up at the side gym door by a parent or they can exit and walk to the parent's car as an option. 
 
If your child has a change in dismissal, please send in a note to your child's teacher early in the day. Please include the child's first and last name as well as the homeroom tag.  If this is a late change during the school day, please email the teacher, office staff and the school nurse so we can ensure that someone saw the change in dismissal. 



School Start Time:

Students are expected to be in their Homeroom by 9:00 am.  Doors open at 8:45.  If you are dropping your child(ren) off or if they are walking, we recommend that they enter the school no later than 8:55 so they can be in the classroom, ready to begin the day at 9:00. Students not in the classroom by 9:00 will be marked late.
