Welcome to Mill Pond
WELCOME TO MILL POND
This handbook is designed to assist you and your student. It is not all-inclusive, but does cover most of the items that commonly concern our school community. Please read through the handbook with your student in order to better understand the essential information regarding our school. Please sign the Student-Family Handbook Awareness Form on the last page and return it to your student’s teacher as soon as possible. As a staff, we encourage your active involvement in your student’s education. A strong partnership between home and school will greatly benefit your student as she/he learns and grows. We are here to assist you and your student and invite you to call or stop by the front office whenever we may be of service to you.
