Car Traffic - MCE Handbook
The MCE parking lot is a very busy place, and we urge you to use extreme caution when on school property. For the safety of all our children, there is no parking in the bus loop during school hours. The parking lot speed limit is 15 miles per hour.
Dropping Off by Car
Students may be dropped off at school only at the designated Drop-Off/Pick-Up area located in the front side of the building parallel to Mendon Center Road and only between the morning arrival time and the start of school (See also Arrival and Dismissal Times). The children will then be escorted to the front entrance by students who are working on Safety Patrol. Students arriving after the school start time or in the middle of the day must be walked in and signed in at the Main Office Reception Area. Parents may then be asked to walk their children to the appropriate classroom.
Picking Up by Car
At dismissal time, fourth and fifth graders only may be picked up by car at the designated Drop-Off/Pick-Up area. Students in grades K-3 must be met and signed out at the Main Office Reception Area. Fourth and fifth graders who are using the Pick-Up area should bring a completed Parent Permission Slip in to the teacher that day. If you know you will be picking up your child on a regular basis (e.g., every Wednesday for religious instruction), you should send in a blanket permission note to the teacher detailing such arrangements (the note will be filed in the Main Office) and then follow-up with a completely filled in permission slip as confirmation on relevant days.
