MRMS Parent Pick up and Drop off Procedures 2020-2021
Pick up and drop off procedures have changed significantly since last fall. In efforts to limit intermingling of students on busses as well as intermingling within the building the changes described below were imperative.
In previous years we welcomed students to the library and the cafeteria, however due to safety this will not be feasible. Parents and guardians are asked to drop off in the morning between 8:40-8:55 daily. Students will not be permitted in the building before 8:40 am. Students will report directly to their homeroom.
Depending on your child’s grade it will determine the location of your drop off and pick up. In general the blue path represents parents/guardians of a 5th grade student. And the orange path for a 6th/7th grade student. If you have multiple students that you are picking up from different grade levels, you will be asked to pick up and drop off following the path of the youngest sibling. For example) If you have a child in 5th and 7th grade then you will pick up and drop off both children using the blue path.
Parent pick up will take place beginning at 3:26 pm. We ask that you don’t block the entry to the buildings by lining up on the pathways before 3:00 pm. Dismissal will culminate at 3:40 pm.
Please note the red sign on the orange path. This is a newly installed STOP Sign. Students will be crossing during dismissal from this location. It is a cross-walk and you must stop.
MRMS Bus Procedures 2020-2021
Each morning at 8:40 am the school buses will arrive to the parking lot located on Stepping Stones Road. Students will follow the path marked in yellow to enter the building. Students all cross the school access road at the newly installed cross-walk. A staff member will be there to supervise and a STOP sign will be installed at the cross-walk. After crossing students will go to the door that is closest to their homeroom.
In the afternoon students will be dismissed based on where they sit on the bus. This is a change from last year as students have an assigned seat. For example the last student to be dropped off the bus will sit in the seat furthest from the front. This will mitigate students passing each other as they depart.
While on the school bus students must continue to follow the typical bus rules as well as wear their mask. Ridership is limited to up to 24 students. As earlier mentioned assigned seats will separate students and the windows will be opened during travel unless it is too cold.
Bus routes can be found here. If you have questions specific to bus ridership, contact Antigone London at email@example.com or 508-945-5123.
