Hello Families and Happy Spring! We have some exciting news to share with you regarding Drop off and Pick-up that will help to maximize student learning time. Following Spring Break, effective April 18th, there will be MAJOR changes to our arrival and dismissal. We will be returning to pre-covid procedures. (If you were here two years ago, we are following the same process).
You will pull up as usual to drop students off, except you are stopping at the drop off area instead of the stop sign. Three cars will be able to empty at once. Please note that students will be independently exiting cars on the right side, so please practice getting in and out of the car with your child. Once the buses leave, cars can pull up through the front while students get out.
Please note when driving your child to school, they should arrive at 9:10 AM to prepare for the day. Students will not be permitted to enter the building until 9:10 as no supervisory coverage is available until then. Students who arrive after 9:20 AM should sign in at the Main Office and receive a late pass to bring to their classroom teacher.
When picking up children at dismissal time, please park in the parking lot adjacent or behind the gym and enter through the gym door entrance where you will be asked to sign out your child (please bring your ID). When turning into MPES, please drive straight through the lot and head directly toward the gym. (You will no longer be making a right as you enter ). *Please do not drive behind buses.* Pick-ups will now be dismissed from their classrooms at 3:33 PM. This procedure is organized to provide a safe and secure environment for the children and alleviate pedestrian traffic around the buses and congestion in the hallway and at the front entrance.
If you decide to have your child ride the bus instead of being a pick-up due to the change in procedures, please make sure you send a note to Lynne Licht in the office prior to Monday, April 18th.
Students that are currently walkers will be dismissed through the gymnasium and will exit the parking lot onto Deep Well Farms Road.
AND... please be patient with us as we try to return to a pre-pandemic arrival and dismissal to maximize learning time in the classroom.
Soon, Ashlyn and Dawn
