     Stay connected with us
 
The following are the communication tools used by the School District as a means to inform the Milford community:  
 
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.
 
Emails 
 
All school administrators send timely and direct emails to parents and parents have the ability to contact teachers via email when necessary.  
 
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
 
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 on student attendance and grades. 
 
E-Newsletters
    • Our School Administrators believe in keeping parents, staff, and students up-to-date on the happenings within their schools:
    • Connections is the Official Newsletter of Milford School District that aims to provide parents, staff, and students highlights and news from across the district.  It has been discontinued and replaced with Letters of the Superintendent.
    • West Street Journal is a digital publication run entirely by Milford High School students — and everyone in the MHS community is encouraged to submit articles, drawings, and photographs. 
 
Social Media
 
Follow us on a variety of social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  In addition, MHS Marketing students get hands-on experience by promoting athletics via their social media channels on Facebook and Instagram.

Media Requests
 
The district recognizes that the media are a vital source of information about Milford Public Schools for families and the community.  The district also recognizes the importance of ensuring the safety and privacy of students, staff and families. District officials, schools and staff must cooperate with the news media to the extent required and appropriate by law, while ensuring that media coverage does not interfere with teaching and learning.

After-school events in designated school areas that are open to the general public are open to the media and do not require prior arrangements. Events during normal school hours must be arranged through the school's front office.  All reporters are required to check in at the main school office, wear a “guest pass” at all times, be escorted by a representative of the school at all times and respect/abide by all district policies and local and state laws concerning the use of minors in news and broadcasting.
