New Morning Drop Off Procedures:
PARK YOUR CAR & WALK UP and WALKERS: If you child is a walker or YOU park your car and walk up to MMES with your child in the morning, please use the front doors off of Westmoreland Rd. They continue to remain open from 8:45-9:10 each day.
DRIVE UP & DROP OFF: If you drive up, pull in and drop off your child, please drive around to the rear of the school and drop off your child at the Pavilion on Commonwealth Avenue each morning. Pull up to the last post of the Pavilion, next to the playground's wooden fence. Staff and safety patrols will be there to assist your child in getting out of your car and getting into school safely.
In effort to increase safety, if you choose to park and walk your child into school, please ONLY use the Westmoreland Road entrance.
The pick up/carpool procedure in the afternoon will remain the same as years past. Please do not block the teacher parking lot or bus loop entrance/exits.
Finally, wait your turn. Do not go around the traffic circles the wrong way on Commonwealth. It's not just illegal, its dangerous.
