Pick-up & Drop-off

Car Rider Guidelines

For traffic safety reasons, parents are strongly encouraged to have their child ride to and from school on MSDPT school buses. It is, however, permissible for parents to bring students to school and pick them up at the end of the day.

Please refrain from dropping off students prior to 7:30 a.m. After 7:30 a.m., students may wait quietly in the bleachers in the East Gym. At the end of the day, car riders must report to a designated area at the end of the day.

Parents who pick up students must enter via the southwest entrance and must pick up students at the curb. Walking Permission Forms may be picked up in the Guidance Office.

Students are permitted to walk home if they adhere strictly to the procedures below. Violation of these rules can result in a loss of privileges.

  1. A Walking Permission Form must be signed by a parent and be on file with the Guidance Office.
  2. At dismissal time, walkers must wait in the designated area.
  3. Walkers will not be permitted to leave the building until so directed.
  4. Walkers must use available sidewalks and roads and are not to cut through lawns and other private property.
  5. Walkers should cross roads at a stoplight where available or use pedestrian crosswalk signals.
  6. Walkers must show respect for the property of others and must not be a nuisance nor loiter in places of business.
