Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are ready to get back into the school routine.
The entrance gate operates by reading a bar code sticker on the right side of a vehicle.
What does this mean?
The front gate will only be open morning, noon and afternoon drop off time and pick up times:
8:15 AM – 9:20 AM
11:35 AM – 12:05 PM
2:15 PM – 4:00 PM
During non-drop off/pick up times the gate will be closed, but will open via the bar code sticker on your vehicle.
You will need a bar code sticker which affixes to the outside of the passenger side of your vehicle. This sticker is read by a laser located at the front entrance and will automatically open the gate for you. Do not look directly at the laser beam.
The bar code sticker will be given to you– please see the instructions on how to place it vertically on the passenger side of your car. If you would like assistance, please let me know – I am happy to put it on for you.
- Each family will be given one bar code sticker. If additional bar code stickers are needed, a $10.00 fee is required for each additional sticker.
- Each bar code sticker is assigned a specific electronic number which logs you into the computer system each time you enter the gate.
- If you want to come onto school grounds and you have not placed the bar code sticker onto your vehicle, you may push the “call” button on the panel in front of the visitors side of the gate during school hours and the front office will assess who it is that is calling and will open the visitor side of the gate for you.
- After 6:00 PM and on weekends, your bar code sticker is deactivated and you will not be able to gain entrance to the school grounds.
If you have any questions, I am in the office M-F 8:00-4:00. Let me know if you would like assistance placing this sticker onto your vehicle.
PLACEMENT OF THE MMS ENTRANCE GATE BAR CODE STICKER
See the arrows indicating the correct placement of the sticker – make sure to put it on vertically. The sticker can be placed on the back passenger seat window as well.
If someone in your family comes to the school without a sticker, please have them pull up to the visitors side of the gate and push the “call” button.
Have a great rest of the summer and see you soon!
