Dear Parents and Guardians,
A warm hello from the Principal’s Office! I hope these opening days have been smooth for students and families. From what I’ve seen so far, students are adjusting nicely and things are going well across the board--with one notable exception.
I started this year wondering if morning drop-off changes might need to be made in order to ensure the safety of our students. After two weeks of watching congestion, confusion, and a few almost near-misses, I’ve concluded that we are, in fact, going to make a few adjustments.
Starting Monday, September 10th:
All parent drop-off before school is at the North Entrance.
All doors open at 7:15 a.m.
Before school, the Main Entrance is only for students who are walking or riding the bus.
On a related note, while classes start at 7:45 a.m., the official beginning of the day for students is at 7:15. Please do not drop off students before this time. Between 7:15 and 7:30 students may eat breakfast in the cafeteria. At 7:30 all classrooms open up.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation and I believe that the small inconvenience of shifting traffic to the North Door will greatly reduce the safety concerns around the main entrance. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at 737-4748 or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tom McKee, Principal, MBES
