Changes for MXR

Safety is always a major point of emphasis at Madison Cross Roads School. Beginning immediately, we will be making some changes to better secure the building and create an environment that is safer for our students. Some of these changes include:

~ All doors on campus will be re-keyed

~ There will be mandatory training and background check for all volunteers

~ Extended day check-out will be moved to the front office

~ All visitors will need to present a picture ID and receive a personalized visitor badge

~ We will be having ongoing safety drills

~ The bus parking lot will close at 7:20am. If you have a special need, you may speak with Ms. Pentecost, in the front parking lot, to enter. Any needs that are in frequent in nature must be approved by the administration.

~ You may not park in the front parking lot after school and walk over to get you children. Again, this is a safety issue. Please use the car rider line. Only those parents who walk to school to pick up their children will be allowed to do this.

~ We have noticed an increase in the number of cars without numbers, in the afternoon. We will begin issuing numbers in the car line to those who are without or have misplaced their numbers. Please have you ID available.

Although it may seem there have been several changes, convenience can never take the place of safety. Thank you for supporting our efforts to make MXR as safe as possible for all students. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Mr. O'Rear.
