Welcome to Joyce Kimer School

The goal of our school is to provide opportunities for all students. We offer many programs, clubs, activities and sports at Joyce Kilmer.

We pledge equal access to a learning environment for all students and employees that supports diversity and equality regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, or disability. Milltown supports the hiring and advancement of all populations. Milltown is an equal opportunity employer.

"...We are a part of all we touch and what seems a small and forgettable gesture to us may have a deep and lasting impact on another’s life. In that sense we are all teachers."
--John Merrow


Rainy/Bad Weather Entrance Procedures

The following are important reminders in the event of inclement weather during morning drop off:
  • As on regular weather days, students are permitted on school grounds at 8:30 am.
  • Staff will be on duty at their respective doors at 8:25 am to allow entry for students arriving before normal entry time. However, It is imperative, particularly on inclement weather days, that students arrive at the normal time as staff becomes available for outdoor supervision, or in this case, bad weather supervision, at 8:25 am. Students arriving at 8:25 am will be directed to the gym where they will be housed until 8:35 am. At 8:35 am they will proceed to their lockers and then on to homeroom. This provides a 10 minute  (8:25 am – 8:35 am) courtesy supervision period for students arriving early on bad weather days.  
  • Students will enter through their normal entrance doors.
    • Grade 5 – Entrance near school office
    • Grade 6 – Entrance near the new main entrance
    • Grades 7 and 8 – Entrance near the media center
  • As on regular weather days, students arriving after  8:35 am will report to the main entrance. 
Thank you for your attention to this matter. The health and safety of our students is paramount to the school and to our students’ academic well being.  This is the best way we can provide the proper and appropriate supervision to our students while keeping their health and safety in mind on bad weather mornings. Your assistance in this effort is very much appreciated.
