Meetings are held at Joyce Kilmer School and meeting information is posted on the district website at www.milltownps.org >District>Board of Education. A side menu on the page links to meeting agendas, dates and related notices. Public comment is welcome in person.

The district is aware of the announcement by the federal CDC now allowing fully vaccinated individuals the choice to wear masks or not. Please be advised that the schools are still obligated to abide by current guidelines that require mask wearing while in school and engaged in school related activities outside until further notice by the NJ Department of Education. When further guidance is released by the state, local district requirements will then be relaxed accordingly.
The Borough of Milltown has informed the district that Joyce Kilmer School will NOT be used as a polling location for the primary election. Therefore, Milltown Public Schools will be OPEN for on-site instruction on June 8, 2021. The calendar change approved by the Board of Education designating June 8, 2021 as an all virtual instruction day will be rescinded.
Full day instruction with lunch begins on Monday May 3rd. *** We are not accepting payments, CASH or CHECKS to student lunch accounts for the remainder of the year. All students will continue to be offered FREE breakfast regardless of in person learning or virtual status. Pickup is at Joyce Kilmer School - Monday and Thursday from 8:30am - 10:00am Virtual families can pick up BREAKFAST and LUNCH and will be asked to provide their students' names.

Dear Parents/Guardians, At the Board of Education meeting on 4/26/21, the district calendar was adjusted to have an all virtual day on Tuesday, June 8th, due to Joyce Kilmer School's designation as a polling location for the election. As you may know the Board's attorney had filed a petition in 2020 with the county Board of Elections to remove JK from being used as a polling location in town, and we were denied that request. Since the Administration holds no authority over how the polls are run at the school, we are unable to enforce temperature checks, masks, etc. with the public entering our buildings for the election. Therefore to maintain our standards of health and safety for our staff and students, we are closing the schools for on-site instruction that day. A schedule for the virtual day on June 8th will be communicated by the Principals as the date approaches. Be well, Dr. Stephanie Brown Superintendent
Good Afternoon, As we have done in years past, the Milltown School District will be asking our school community to take part in a survey of the school climate. This survey will help us to provide programs and address any emerging needs. The survey will be completed in school when we return from spring break. You will also receive a message with a link for completing the survey as a member of the community after spring break. If you choose to opt your child out of taking this survey, please fill out this form linked here . Thank you for your continued support as we work to make our schools the best possible place for your children! Mrs. Citro
