Bus Evacuation Drills

We conducted bus evacuation drills today as we continue our efforts to provide students with a safe learning environment and prepare them in the event of emergencies. The students did an outstanding job this morning. All buses safely practiced the bus evacuation drills. The students were assisted by their bus driver and several other Mayfield Intermeidate School staff members. By 7:05 we had all buses safely evacuated and students were in school ready to begin their day.

School Safety Patrol Induction Ceremony

Thank you to Mrs. Dove, Officer Lawler, Ms. Whitaker, Mr. Esteban, Officer Grigsby , Mr. Moore and Dr. Newman for attending our school's Induction Ceremony for the 2018-2019 safety patrol. This is a great group of students who have been selected to represent Mayfield Intermediate School. The safety patrol students have accepted the responsibility of helping maintain a safe learning environment for all students and staff.
