Exeter-Milligan Public Schools

Student Handbook

(Updated Spring 2023)

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Exeter-Milligan Public School, in partnership with parent and community, to provide excellent educational programs which empower our students to be knowledgeable, responsible, patriotic citizens of a global community.


This handbook is prepared for your information and guidance while you are a student at Exeter-Milligan Public School.  This refers to ALL students, including the homeless and those with special needs.  You should keep this book where you can easily refer to it when the need arises, and you are responsible for knowing and understanding its contents.  It is advisable that you also have your parents become familiar with the contents.  If either you or your parents do not clearly understand some of the contents, it is your responsibility to contact the Superintendent and have your questions answered.

The purpose of this handbook is to acquaint you and your parents with your school system, its organizations, activities, opportunities, facilities, obligations, and responsibilities.  This book is not  intended to answer all your questions or to give rules and regulations covering all situations, as this is virtually impossible, but rather is designed to answer most basic questions and to serve as a general guideline.  The school administration reserves the right to change or add new rules or more information from time to time as the need arises.

The Exeter-Milligan School staff wishes to provide for you a learning experience that will be meaningful.  The staff expects you to cooperate in this endeavor, as that is your prime responsibility.
