Parking Lot & Safety

Please drive safely to and from school. It is important to remember that the speed limit around all MUSD schools is 25MPH when children are present. We have many students and families walking and biking to school while the weather is nice. Please obey all traffic safety laws and be aware of students and families on the road.

When you arrive at MES, parents and guardians, we encourage you to use the driveway to drop-off your students. Please pull all the way to the top of the driveway before stopping. If you need to stop and exit your vehicle for any reason, you must park in the visitor parking lot (parent/guardian parking lot) which is located at the east end of the school (the parking lot closest to the Trails Subdivision). Do NOT park in the Trails subdivision, please.

The staff parking lot is for all staff from 7:00am – 1:40pm. Visitors may park in the staff lot after 1:40 only if there are no available spots in the visitor parking lot.

Please do NOT drop off your students before 7:30am. There is no supervision available. Students must enter the MPR and exit to the lunch tables between 7:30-7:45. Breakfast is available before 8:00 or at recess for our students.
