Procedures for drop off and pick up:


For students who cannot drive themselves:

  • Drop off
    • When dropping off your student, you must complete the information on the check-in/check-out sheet, either by coming in to MVS's office or relaying it to us via the phone or intercom at the MVS front door. You must leave a good contact phone number for the pick-up adult at that time.
  • Pick Up
    • The adult must come into MVS front office and sign the student out.
    • The adult must be a parent/legal guardian or on the emergency contact list in PowerSchool.


For students of driving age:
