Summer Mailing Changes for 2016-2017

Millbrook CSD Goes Green

Dear Parents and Guardians:

In an effort to try and conserve paper, we have posted much of the information on the District’s Web-Page at www.millbrookcsd.org/parentinfo, which we formerly mailed home to you. In the next few days, you should be receiving a much reduced summer mailing. The mailing will include an Acknowledgement Form which you need to complete and return to your child’s school. There is some other information which is unique to your child’s school that needs to be filled out and returned as well.

We have also included a section on the Acknowledgement Form for you to check if you do not have internet access. If you do not have internet access, we will mail hard-copies of the information listed on the District’s Web-Site to your home.

You can access the information by clicking on this link: Parent/Guardian Information, which is also located on the left of the District’s Web-Site, Main Page under Quick Links, District: Parent/Guardian Information.

Also, we will be limiting our use of the School Messenger System to emergency delays and closings, and information that is of a District-level nature.

We hope that these changes will simplify things and will be more cost effective for the District.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Philip D. D’Angelo, Jr.
Superintendent of Schools
