  • Dropping off and picking up

    Students may be dropped off at any of the MPCS carpool locations each morning after 7:30 a.m. Afternoon pick-up involves several different pick-up locations and carpool lines around campus. Specific instructions for your carpool assignment are printed on the back of your carpool card. Please read these instructions carefully. High school carpool is separate from the other lines and we do not combine younger students with high school. (see note on sibling drivers). Other approved individuals may pick up students in the carpool line with a school issued carpool card provided by the parent to the individual.
  • Sibling Drivers

    If your high school student has a younger sibling who rides with them, please complete the Student Sibling Driver form here. Student drivers who take middle school or lower school siblings home from school will need to walk over to their sibling’s assigned carpool pick-up location immediately following the high school dismissal at 3:10 to pick up their sibling. They will then walk with the sibling to the high school parking area.
  • Student driver parking and senior spots

    Licensed high school drivers will be assigned a specific parking space through the high school office. A student driver application is available by clicking here and is required for all parking spot requests and must be signed by a parent. Students should bring these completed forms to their sign up date/time listed below. A parking space will be assigned and a security parking decal issued. These decals must be displayed on the windshield at all times.
  • Walkers and bike riders

    If your child plans to walk or ride a bicycle to/from school, a Student Walker Permission Form must be signed and returned to the office before this routine begins. These forms are available online here. Please return these to the main office. Any students going home with walkers/bikers must also have a permission form on file. Student walkers/bikers will also be assigned a carpool card to be used on inclement weather days. Parents should take time to review this procedure with their children so there is no confusion when weather prevents them from walking or riding their bike home.

  • Parent access to campus

    There may be times during the school day where as a parent you need to come onto campus—lunch with your student, checking out a sick child, appointments with staff members, volunteer work, or other meetings. Entry to campus during the school day is through the main Stanley Road entry gate. As a part of our security program, all parents are issued annual car security decals (one per parent). These decals should be displayed in the driver’s side lower corner of the windshield. Parents or other visitors who come to campus without a decal between 8:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m. should be prepared to stop and sign in at the security office at the main entrance to campus.

    We request parents refrain from checking students out after 2:00 p.m. due to carpool traffic.
