We are preparing to open the Parent Portal on Thursday, August 15th at 1:00 pm. As in the past, all information regarding the opening of school will be available through this portal. New this year, prior to accessing schedules, teacher assignments, transportation routes, and other important information, parents and students will need to answer questions regarding the acknowledgment of the Student Handbook, inclement weather plans, media release, internet usage, etc. The Computer Use Policies and the Student Handbook have been linked on your child’s school’s webpage for your review prior to the portal opening.

Dear Milton Parents,
Greetings and welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I hope you and your family had a fun summer and are starting to turn your thoughts toward preparing for school.
Many students are looking forward to visiting the school to see their new teacher and classroom. Our Open House at both schools will be Tuesday, September 3rd from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. During this time you will be able to visit your child’s classroom and meet your new teacher.
This year we are implementing new curriculum and resources in Social Studies. The teachers will receive training early in the school year and will be using exciting new resources in the classroom this year. Due to budget limitations, library instruction will be offered on alternate weeks this year. On weeks that the media specialist is not at Cozy Lake/Milton, teachers will supplement instruction during library time.
It is important that your child develops the habit of arriving to school on-time and remaining for the entire school day. The Board of Education has implemented a revised policy for tardy students that prescribes specific actions be taken for students as the number of times they are late to school (arriving 8:30 a.m. or later) increases. This year we will send home a reminder letter after a student is tardy 5 or more times and conduct a parent conference after the 10th tardy. Ultimately, your child will receive consequences starting with the 15th tardy. Let’s work together to ensure that no students at Milton School reach that threshold!
Lastly, I encourage you to attend your child’s Back-to-School Night on September 12th at 6:00 p.m. Further information will be forthcoming.
I wish you and your family a smooth transition into the back-to-school routine.
