MRES Updates

  • MRES Announces New Kiss-n-Go Lane

    MRES is always striving to improve in all areas and now offers more efficient student drop-off and pick-up traffic flow for parents and guardians. We have also added two short-term visitor parking stalls in the front parking lot.

     

    Students will now be able to be Dropped-off and Picked-up in our new Kiss-n-Go Lane in the South (gravel) parking lot. The image below shows the traffic flow for the new lane. There is also one minor change to the original kiss-n-Go: Vehicles may now only turn left when leaving the front parking lot during drop-off and pick-up times. This is to allow better traffic flow in the new lane. Click here to see a short video describing the traffic flow for all three lanes.
