The following is the rationale and the considerations behind the decision on whether or not to delay or close school due to inclement weather. We know these decisions impact families throughout the District who may need to find alternative care for their children. The over-riding consideration in making these decisions is the safety of our students, staff and others in the community. Beyond that, the process becomes more complicated.
Mark your calendar for February 28th and March 2nd. Evening Parent Teacher Conferences from 4-8pm.
A parent–teacher conference is a great opportunity to: discuss your child's progress, share your child's strengths and needs, and work with the teachers to help your child do well in school.
Every winter, bad weather — snow, slush, freezing temperatures or even heavy rains — can present challenges to getting children to school. So do the illnesses such as colds, flu, fevers and earaches that often come with the winter months.
Welcome to Milton-Freewater Unified School District. My name is Aaron Duff and I have been the superintendent since 2019. It is an honor to continue to work in the community of Milton-Freewater. I came to this community 2004 as a High School Agriculture Teacher and FFA Advisor. The warm welcome, sense of community, and overarching alliance of providing a quality education to our youth has grounded me here.
Over the years as a MFUSD Pioneer, I have held a few different positions that have allowed me to see the district, its educators, students and community through various lenses. In 2012, I transitioned from the classroom to being an elementary principal, where I gained experience at the K-5 level. In 2017, our community showed their support by passing a bond to build a new school and modernize all buildings in the district. At that time, I was chosen to move into the Director of Operations and overseeing the $33 million of bond work. Finally, in 2019, I was appointed Superintendent.
My experiences here in Milton-Freewater continue to drive my passion and desire for creating a safe and welcoming environment that fosters the delivery of superior education to ALL.
Again, I welcome you to our district and take great pride in the students, staff and community of the Milton-Freewater School District.
