Bus drop-off at MS has changed to the West Side of MS
Due to the construction project that is about to begin at the middle school we will be moving our bus drop off from the bus slab on the east side of the middle school to the west side of the middle school at/near the SW Cafeteria doors. This change will occur this Monday, October 27. Parents dropping off students will need to do so at the south end of the school's west side. This will happen near the New Multipurpose Room on the east side of Main Street. This will prevent students from having to cross traffic. Buses will drop off at/near the SW Cafeteria doors at the steps leading to the cafeteria doors. More bus drop off areas will be constructed in the very near future on the west side.
Students waiting areas in the building will also shift. Elementary students waiting for busing will wait on the west side of the building near the middle school library. High School students will need to wait inside the SW doors entrance. Middle school wait areas will remain the same, with the exception of 7th grade. They will now wait on the east side of the middle school near the bus slab entrance.
Take comfort in knowing I am monitoring illnesses, and we are disinfecting frequently touched surfaces in all rooms on a regular basis. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I am happy to talk with you! Kristin, RN
