"MSAD 53 Virtual Art Show"

Our sincere apology to Jocelyn Ardry, kindergarten student, as her piece, entitled Minnie Mouse, was accidentally omitted from the 2020 Virtual Art Show. Great work Josie!

Drop Off and Pick Up Reminder for Traffic Flow

The loop in front of Warsaw is one-way in the morning for drop off. Please enter from Somerset Avenue. We will continue to have a crossing guard at the location between Vickery and Warsaw. Families who have children in both buildings can make one drop in the morning. Busses enter from Hartland Avenue and drop students off at Warsaw first and then Vickery. If you enter from Hartland Avenue, please remember to only drop at the crosswalks. Also, the back parking lot at Warsaw is not a drop-off / turn around spot. This creates a very dangerous situation.

During afternoon pick-up we will continue to close the front loop at Warsaw to traffic. Students exiting the buildings to board busses makes this necessary. If you are parked in front of Warsaw during afternoon dismissal, we kindly ask for you to remain parked until all students have exited the building and the busses have left for the day. The gym parking lot at Warsaw will continue to be a pick-up area, along with Vickery’s visitor parking spaces.

Parents: For safety reasons it is very important that you do not drop your children off at school before 7:30 am. Staff does not arrive until 7:30 and the school doors are locked. Thank you for your understanding.
