February’s Storm & the End of the School Year
The waiver has been submitted for the three days school was closed due to the storm in February. Now we wait!
After meeting with the school board last week, the plan agreed upon is to apply for three days waived, which we have, but expect to receive two days waived. This would mean our last day of school could be Thursday, June 6 not Wednesday, June 5.
To play it safe we are asking all families to plan on your child(ren) attending school through Thursday, June 6, including 8th graders. Both June 5 and June 6 will be minimum days and will be filled with fun “end of year” events. Even though these days will be filled with end of year fun, they are still attendance days and all students, TK-8, are expected to attend. Attendance matters through the last day of school, which could very well be Thursday, June 6.
We will keep you informed as any new information is received regarding the waiver.
Thank you! -Mindy DeSantis

About Millville Elementary School
Founded in 1856, Millville Elementary School District is a firmly established and integral member of the small, rural ranching community of Millville. Located just 15 miles east of Redding, Millville School has a current enrollment of approximately 250 students, kindergarten through 8th grade. Our small school atmosphere allows us to get to know every student and to provide an education that caters to each students’ individual needs.
At Millville School, our purpose is to develop a love of learning in our students by providing a high-quality, standards-based education that is enhanced by arts, music, clubs and sports. We strive to create an educational environment that provides the basis for participation in a democratic society by promoting critical thinking, developing a sense of responsibility and self esteem, encouraging independence of opinion and action, and nurturing respect for others.
Providing a quality and comprehensive education for our students is only achievable through the efforts of our professional and caring staff, supportive families, and an involved community. It is through the combined efforts of our staff and community, on behalf of our students, that Millville School truly is “A Great Place to Learn”.
