Attendance Notifications

It is important to inform the school front office about any late arrivals, early dismissals, dismissal changes and, most importantly, of absences.

If you need to pick up your child early, please inform the school in the morning to ensure the easiest and fastest way to do so.  A parent/guardian will have to come to the front office to sign the student out.

If you need to make a change to the end of the day plan for your child, please do so at least an hour before dismissal which would be 1:30 pm. On the early release Wednesdays it would be by 12:20 pm. It is very busy at the end of the day and we want to ensure everyone gets to where they should be. This is hard to do if we do not have proper time to prepare.

For many safety reasons, and for attendance tracking if you would please pick from one of the many ways to inform us if your student will be absent, tardy, has a change in dismissal or is leaving early. Please tell us your name, student’s first and last name ,and their team.


Call 802-893-5400 and choose option 2 for Milton Middle School. then option 1 to leave a message on the attendance line.

Send a Note

Send a note to school a day prior and put “Attention: Front Office”  or use Note to Milton Middle School Office.pdf 
Please note if you email/call/message to anyone but the front office this does not mean you have let the front office know and they will need to call you to ask why your student is absent or late.

Reminder for picking up at dismissal
Please use the back road to pick students up. The crosswalk is not monitored and we changed the procedure to support safety.
