Dear McMillan Middle Staff and Families:

We continue to work with the families of the students involved and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

We appreciate your continued help in guiding our students in using good judgment in their actions for their safety and the safety of others.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school at (531) 299-2440. Please know that I cannot share additional details due to student privacy laws. 

Thank you for your continued support of McMillan Middle and Omaha Public Schools.
