MILLBURN, NJ - We had our first brief taste of winter weather today – and this is likely only the beginning! I checked in with Buildings and Grounds Director, Carlos Edmundo, around 4 a.m. this morning, who assured me that the roads would be clear and safe for travel for a full day of school, and fortunately he and the meteorologists were correct. We have our full complement of snow days as we head into true snow season. As outlined in an October letter there are many factors that go into the decision to close schools, with the safety of our families and staff at the forefront. Please remember to update your contact information in our SchoolMessenger automated notification system by logging into your PowerSchool parent account and following the instructions here.

In honor of School Board Recognition Month I want to welcome our newest Board of Education member, Jennifer Woodhouse, and we congratulate our 2017 President Emily Jaffe and Vice President Jesse Liu. Join us at Monday’s Board of Education meeting at 7:45 pm to see your Board in action, and mark your calendar for Sunday, January 29, for our annual BOE Open Forum at 2 p.m. at the Millburn Public Library. Thank a board member today!   

One more reminder…Kindergarten registration for 2017-2018 begins next week. If you, or a friend or neighbor, have a child who will be 5 years of age by October 1, 2017, you may begin the registration process by entering the majority of your information online in the Registration Gateway system and schedule an in-person meeting at the Education Center with the registrar through the Registration Gateway calendar. Follow the instructions HERE.

Get your snow shovel/blower ready and stay warm this weekend!
