Morning Carpool Reminder From Mr. Regan

Recently, we've seen an increase in parents parking and letting their child walk across the parking lot during arrival time. During arrival time (8:45-9:10), please follow the carpool line to the designated unloading zones in front of the building. For the safety of all students and parents, please do not park and walk your child into the building.

They all enjoyed your home cooked scrumptious meals, yum lounge treats, you volunteering to watch kids during their extended lunch and sweet gestures by their students.

You are a valuable part of our MPE community and we are glad to have your help and support.
