Millville Elementary School

School Will Resume On April 14 through Distance Learning

Millville School will resume school on April 14 through Distance Learning. Distance Learning will be treated and considered just as we did "in-seat" school with daily attendance, daily assignments and daily communications with teachers required.

Distance Learning information and links will be posted on our website and will be live by April 14.

New Information as of 3/20/20

As the COVID-19 crisis continues and the "Stay At Home" order persists, Millville School anticipates, and is currently working toward, offering a form of Distance Learning for all students the week after spring break. As you know, new information and mandates have been coming to us fast and furiously, so our expectations may change depending on new mandates, but please know the staff of Millville School is eager to return to school, in whatever form it takes, and looks forward to fulfilling our purpose of providing a dynamic and meaningful education to all of our students.

Millville School Closure (Updated 3/17/20)

The Millville School Board voted on Tuesday March 17, 2020 to close Millville School at the end of the day Wednesday, March 18 through April 13 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect to resume school on Tuesday, April 14.

Students will receive work packets to do at home, breakfasts and lunches will be provided by request and other services may be available as needed.

Work Packets

Students will be given a packet of classwork containing two weeks’ worth of classwork, which will be due upon our return to school. Parents of students who have been absent may pick up their child’s packet from the classroom teacher on Wednesday or at the school office on Thursday or Friday between 8:00-3:30.

If students should have questions regarding the assignments, they can contact their classroom teacher at any time. Teachers will be checking their email daily. A list of all teachers’ email addresses is below.

Assignment sheets are included in each packet of work and they are also linked below should your child misplace it. Also linked below is another copy of the Science Fair guidelines as working on the Science Fair projects is on many students’ assignment list.

Library and Computer Lab

If you would like to check out a book or your child needs to use a computer please contact me at and I will arrange a time to meet you at the school.

We will continue to update information on this website as it becomes available.

We thank you for your patience as we have carefully sorted through the myriad of new information that has come to us by the hour in order to determine what is in the best interest of our students. What we are experiencing now is a most unprecedented set of circumstances, but we are traveling this road together, which makes us all the stronger.

If you have any questions, please email me at the above address; I’ll be checking email frequently.

Take care of yourselves and your families; we look forward to seeing you in April.

California School Dashboard

Teachers use more than just test scores to determine how well a student is doing, because test scores alone don’t tell the whole story. And the same is true for schools – test scores are only part of a bigger picture of school success. That’s why the California School Dashboard contains a range of easy-to-use, color-coded gauges designed to give families a complete picture of a school or district. The Dashboard includes meaningful data on graduation rates, college/career readiness, attendance, English learner progress, suspensions and more. The state has created several videos – translated into Spanish – to help you learn about the Dashboard and how to use it. Find them on the California Department of Education’s YouTube channel!

The Mission of Millville Elementary School is to instill in our students an enthusiasm for learning.

To achieve this we will:

  • Provide our students with a high quality education;
  • Offer all students an introduction to the arts;
  • Foster a positive work ethic;
  • Create an environment of respect for one another, and
  • Spark an attitude of inquiry

...with the intent to guide our students to becoming productive, responsible citizens.

Our purpose is to develop students who are lifelong learners by providing quality, standards-based education through a caring staff, supportive families, and an involved community.

About Millville Elementary School

Founded in 1856, Millville Elementary School District is a firmly established and integral member of the small, rural ranching community of Millville. Located just 15 miles east of Redding, Millville School has a current enrollment of approximately 250 students, kindergarten through 8th grade. Our small school atmosphere allows us to get to know every student and to provide an education that caters to each students’ individual needs.

At Millville School, our purpose is to develop a love of learning in our students by providing a high-quality, standards-based education that is enhanced by arts, music, clubs and sports. We strive to create an educational environment that provides the basis for participation in a democratic society by promoting critical thinking, developing a sense of responsibility and self esteem, encouraging independence of opinion and action, and nurturing respect for others.

Providing a quality and comprehensive education for our students is only achievable through the efforts of our professional and caring staff, supportive families, and an involved community. It is through the combined efforts of our staff and community, on behalf of our students, that Millville School truly is “A Great Place to Learn”.
