    Friendly Reminder! Student Morning Drop Off

    Please do not drop children off at the school’s main entrance in the morning. Only buses may use this drive. If your child is being dropped off in the morning please pull into the main parking lot and drop your child off curbside at the side entrance to the building. Please try to have your child hop out of the car on the sidewalk and avoid pulling out from the curb and passing cars that children are exiting. Children may begin to enter the building at 8:10 AM. The instructional day begins at 8:25 AM. Any child arriving after that time is tardy and must check into to the office with the adult dropping them off. Thank you for your help!

    Reminder - Walking to School Wednesdays now until December and MSES Spirit Wear Days are held the last Friday of every month!
