Miller Elementary School Meal Plan:

Breakfast and Lunch at Miller:

· Miller students will be eating outside as much as possible, weather and Air Quality permitting. When we are eating outside, students will eat in the courtyards between the wings, six feet apart, and in assigned spots.

· They will be required to wear masks until it’s time to eat, masks will come off for 15 minutes to eat then masks back on.

· Breakfast will be eaten in the classrooms, and students that choose to eat breakfast at school will eat six feet apart from their UNMASKED classmates.

· If we are experiencing inclement weather or the Air Quality Index criteria is met, we will eat inside. Students will be in assigned seating and will be distanced six feet apart.

· Some classrooms will not have enough physical space to accommodate six feet between all their students. In this case, students will be placed into the common area in the wing or an open classroom with assigned seating.

· All students regardless of where they are eating will wash hands prior to eating lunch. If eating inside, student desks will be cleaned with approved materials after lunch and breakfast.

Our Story

With the goal of nurturing globally competent citizens, our Miller community is based on high achievement, positive relationships, environmental stewardship and community service.


Our school building is LEED Gold Certified. This means our building complies with the guidelines from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Designs. We have a strong focus on sustainability throughout the building and we ask our staff, students and visitors to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost in our facility. In keeping with our focus on sustainability, we use email for the bulk of our communications to families. Our News From the Den will be emailed to parents bi-weekly. Teachers will email information to parents and post items on their websites.
