It's almost time for heading back to class in Millington

Millington leaders said their number one goal this school year is to keep students and staff safe.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — School is starting in next week all over the Mid-South, and leaders with Millington Municipal Schools said they're preparing to give students a great learning experience.

The district held a teacher and staff convocation event Friday, and then they got classrooms ready, with parents helping out by dropping off supplies.

The district said it will provide teachers and students with a safe and productive environment which will give them the opportunity to maximize their potential.

“We want to provide teachers with growth opportunities, as well as students with growth opportunities. We're a big family out here, and so I think that's important - that family atmosphere - and that's going to help with the teacher retention rate,” said Michael Perry, Principal at Millington Central Middle High School.

Millington leaders said their number one goal this school year is to keep students and staff safe.

With new opportunities like dual enrollment and new clubs and sports, Millington school administrators said they can't wait to open their doors.
