Polling Station Information

Dear McMillin Families:

 

McMillin Elementary School has been designated as a polling site for the upcoming March 5, 2024, presidential primary elections. To ensure the safety of our staff and students, our district has safety precautions for voters and poll workers visiting our school sites during elections. These precautions include:

 

  • Access to the polling area will be restricted to authorized personnel and voters, with designated entry and exit points.
  • To prevent overcrowding, we will manage the number of individuals in the polling area at any time.
  • Adequate signage and personnel will help direct pedestrian traffic flow and to minimize congestion.
  • Our emergency response plan is in place, and our staff is trained to handle various emergencies.
  • We will work closely with local law enforcement to address any issues promptly.
  • Every effort will be made to place poll locations away from school offices, classrooms, and areas where students will be present.

 

Voting will be available at our school from Saturday, March 2, 2024, through Monday, March 4, 2024, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. On Tuesday, March 5, 2024, the polling site will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you have additional questions, please contact me.

Thank you!

Dear McMillin Families,

I trust this message finds you well as we approach the Thanksgiving break, a time for reflection and gratitude. As we prepare to take a pause from our daily routines to celebrate this special holiday, I wanted to take a moment to express my deep appreciation for the wonderful community we have here at McMillin.

Thanksgiving is more than just a day on the calendar; it is an opportunity for us to reflect on the abundance of blessings that surround us. It’s a time to appreciate the supportive relationships, the nurturing environment, and the growth and learning that define our school community.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I encourage each family to take a moment during the break to share what you are grateful for. Whether it’s the achievements of your child, the dedication of our teachers, or the sense of unity within our school, acknowledging and expressing gratitude can have a profound impact on our collective well-being.

Wishing you a joyous and gratitude-filled Thanksgiving break!

Warm regards,

Dr. Sturges
