SAD NEWS:

March 23, 2017

Dear Parents,

It is with much sadness that I inform you of the passing of Marcelle Mele on March 22, 2017. Ms. Mele was a highly-respected special education and language arts teacher who worked in Millstone Township for 25 years. Although recently retired, Ms. Mele touched the lives of so many of our community members, we thought it was important to inform you of her passing.

For those of you who knew Ms. Mele, or knew of her, you understand what a loss this is for our staff, her family, and her loved ones. Ms. Mele was an energetic, loving, and compassionate person who cared for everyone and welcomed all into her life with open arms. Even in her retirement, she kept in touch with many staff members, former students, and families. Ms. Mele will be dearly missed by many.

It is possible that your child may hear of this news and have feelings directly related to Ms. Mele's passing or display emotions connected to previous losses.  If you notice that your child is struggling with the news, please let us know. The school guidance counselors, Ms. Acker and Mrs. Auriemma, will be available to talk with students as necessary. On behalf of Millstone Township, my heartfelt sympathy and condolences go out to Ms. Mele’s family and loved ones.

Sincerely,

Scott

INFOSNAP WALKTHROUGH

Dear Millstone Parents and Guardians,

I am sure you have noticed that we did not send home a first day packet with your children this year.  We are now utilizing an online registration process which will ensure that our data is up to date and available immediately.  The use of InfoSnap will streamline our registration and should assist us in better serving the community in the future.  However, we are aware that the implementation of new processes can cause some confusion.  In order to address this confusion, we have developed two video walkthroughs that will assist you in creating a new parent portal account or for adding students to your existing account.  Parents in both the Elementary and Primary schools recently received a letter containing the AccessID and Password which will be needed during this process.  Anyone who does not have access to this information should call the school where their child is enrolled.

If you are new to the district and you have already completed the InfoSnap process then you do not need to access InfoSnap.  If you are a returning student, you do not need to send in any residence verification as we already have this information on file. 

We hope that this these videos will assist you in completing registration and we will be happy to address your concerns if you call the building where your child is enrolled.
