    ATTENTION! Please do not park between the Fire Lane signs in front of the building.  This is a NO PARKING ZONE.  You may park briefly for picking up or dropping off a student only - per Grafton Fire Deprtment

    Bus Routes

    The bus routes are published on the district web site. There have been some changes to routes for the new school year as well as bus numbers reassigned. Please keep in mind that buses start their morning picking up and dropping off at the high school/middle school, then the 2 – 6 schools and lastly the PreK – 1 schools. Any disruption in the flow causes a domino effect. The first few days of the school year simply by nature (I.e. – newly created stops on routes, new drivers, inquiring parents at stops, picture taking at stops, etc.) will cause delays. It takes a few days into the year for routes to begin to follow their calculated times. We appreciate your patience while this organic process falls into place. The district has created the following timeline posted on the transportation page.

    Bus Stop Request Timeline for 2017-2018 School Year

    o    Two full weeks are given for parents and drivers to adjust to the new school year, bus stops and times.

    Wednesday Envelopes

    Due to the nature of the start of a school year, important papers have been coming home over the course of the first few days. By Wednesday 8/29 students have brought home School Bucks Account Letters, Free & Reduced Lunch Applications and their Emergency Card Information Sheet.

    Beginning next Wednesday, September 6th we will begin our practice of Wednesday envelopes. We do our best to send any fliers, notices, etc. on Wednesdays so students and parents are not inundated with papers. Please look for the big white envelope of school & community-based communication on Wednesdays. The Principal’s Pen is always sent electronically, posted on the school web site and linked on the Facebook page. The PTO is welcoming back families to school with a Grafton Public Schools Calendar refrigerator magnet! Look for these in your envelope next Wednesday!

    Cherub’s Haven

    We have a lot of students attending Cherub’s Haven Afterschool Daycare this year. Please note that MSES is not affiliated with Cherub’s Haven, therefore any changes in attendance at Cherub’s must also be reported to the school office. We do not have a phone line connected to Cherub’s Haven from the school office, so please dial them directly when you need to contact them.

    Instrument Rental Night

    Instrument Rental night for 4th, 5th and 6th graders who are participating in band this year and need to rent an instrument will be Wednesday, September 20th starting at 6:30pm in the cafeteria. Fourth graders will be treated to an instrument demonstration on Wednesday, September 6th to “drum” up some interest.

    Parent Pick-up  
    If you will be picking up your child from school you must park your car and enter the building from the large parking lot by the cafeteria.  Parents will be able to enter the building at 2:50pm.  The students are dismissed from the cafeteria by staff on duty.  Please form a line to sign out your child.  Parents are not permitted to enter the cafeteria during parent pick up. If your child will be a regular parent pick up please send in a note the first day of school stating the days you will picking them up.  If you need to place your child on the Parent Pick up List for a specific afternoon please send in a note that morning so we can add them to the sign out sheet.  You may not pick up a child other than your own unless we have written permission of the parent. There is no parking in the fire lane in the front of the school during the school year. Please use the side lots and enter though the main entrance in front of the flagpoles.
