Notice of Daily Road Closure:
Mustang Drive at the south entrance to Mantachie Attendance Center (4 way stop by the play school) will be closed daily beginning at 2:30 p.m., and remain closed until after parent pickup is concluded. Vehicles will NOT be allowed entrance at the south end or the north end. The north end will be open only for parent pickup as it is now. As the south entrance will be barricaded, there will be no check-outs for students between these times. If you need to check-out your child, it must be done before 2:30 p.m. No unauthorized vehicles will be allowed to enter or park on school property during the secured time. These safety measures will ensure that students are either placed on a bus or in the parent pick-up area. Also, this will be a safer way to secure the bus loading area as well as provide safe dismissal of students in the high school parking lot. Please be patient as this safety measure is initiated and understand that the safety of our students is our number one concern.
