Morning Parent Drop Off Procedures

We continue to experience a traffic back-up during the morning parent drop off. I would like to ask parents who drop their children off in the morning to assist us by following the procedure below. The parking lot and drop off area is not ideal so we all need to understand and follow the process to reduce the back up. Thank you in advance.

  • A MBMS staff member, Mr. Kamp, will be on duty at 7:40 to supervise children prior to the 7:45 bell.
  • Once Mr. Kamp arrives, students in the cars that are lined up on the curb should exit the vehicle on the side closest to the sidewalk and walk to the flag pole area. Parents should then continue around the parking lot to the exits allowing for the next line of cars to pull forward.
  • Parents who do not want their student to stand outside and wait for the bell should park their vehicle in a parking spot so the drop off line can continue flow. Those parents will need to walk their child to the sidewalk once the 7:45 bell rings to ensure their child's safety in the parking lot.

Thank you for your cooperation.
