About District Communications

Good Communication Builds Teamwork  
Many good things happen in our schools everyday that most of us take for granted and never heard of. Our students, teachers, administrators, families, and partners are taking innovative approaches to teaching and learning.  We hope that this page will be able to direct our audience to see such many shining efforts as a way to engage the community in our district's educational success.  And we hope that we will be able to inspire our leaders and staff to reach our common goals.
       Ways We CommunicateWays We Communicate
Everyone prefers certain types of communication, and we have developed several tools to accommodate all families in our district so we can be a community working together for a common goal.
Good things happen when we see what we all want for our children and make use of our collective energy to drive student achievement and create a superior learning environment for our students.  We, therefore, encourage everyone to take full advantage of the following communication tools:  
District Website
Our website serves as the main hub for all communications. If you have questions or need information,
our website will be a valuable resource.
All school administrators send timely and direct emails to parents and parents have the ability to contact teachers via email when necessary.  Our superintendent also sends letters to the community on a regular basis.  These letters from the superintendent are accessible to the public via our district website.
Automated Phone Calls
The district utilizes an automated voicemail to communicate critical information such as school closure, weather-related announcements, and other time-sensitive information. 
PowerSchool is the Milford School District's electronic student management system where student information is collected and stored. The Portal is the "doorway" into the system giving parents access to information about their children. The PowerSchool Parent Portal gives parents and students access to real-time information that may include attendance, grades, lunch balances and detailed assignment descriptions and school bulletins. Everyone is encouraged to stay connected! 
    • Connections is the Official Newsletter of Milford School District that aims to provide parents, staff, and students highlights and news from across the district.
    • Our School Administrators believe in keeping parents, staff, and students up-to-date on the happenings within their schools:
    • West Street Journal is a digital publication run entirely by Milford High School students — and everyone in the community is encouraged to submit articles, drawings, and photographs. 
Social Media
We believe in more than just “sending information out” to parents. We engage the Milford School community in celebration of student success and develop dialogue with followers on a variety of social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Resource Hub
Whether hybrid or remote, learning looks and feels different this year.   The District's Resource Hub is the go-to place information on learning resources and technology-related tutorials.  Be sure to check it out.
Technology Support
If your student experiences technical challenges with their online learning during this time, please contact your child’s teacher. We have set up a help-desk for the staff to ensure they have access to online support throughout this remote learning process. Our technology team is prepared and ready to ensure their success.
