Mission and vision
Mission and Vision

Our Vision:

To become a model school of caring, sharing, and high student achievement.

Our Mission:

To work together to promote high student achievement and lifelong learning for all by providing a quality education in a safe learning environment.

Our values
Our Values

  • Collaboration among and across all stakeholders

  • Positive learning environment for our students

  • Life-long learning for all

  • The success of each individual student


  • Our doors open for students at 8:15 AM.

  • Dismissal begins at 3:05 PM.

  • Students need to be in their seats by 8:35 to avoid being marked tardy (late).

  • If your child is absent, a note must be sent in when your child returns. If a note is not received, the absence will be marked as unverified.

  • After a period of time, unverified absences are coded as UNLAWFUL.

  • Students who leave prior to 3:05 will be marked tardy for the afternoon.

  • Extended absences require prior approval.


  • Bus transportation is available for every student.

  • We have great bus drivers!

  • Riding the school bus is statistically safer than riding in a car.

  • We have a very small parking lot. Please help us decrease the volume of traffic in our loop.

  • Please adhere to the directions of our staff members in the parking lot.


  • Lunch Guests-Please wait at least 2 weeks before coming in to have lunch with your child.

  • Lunch guests must sign in at the office and receive a guest sticker.

  • If at all possible, please purchase breakfast/lunches through the prepay lunch program. This can be done for a few meals, the month, or the year.

  • Pre-pay forms can be found on the MES website.

  • Breakfast available daily.

Lunch prices
Lunch Prices

  • Student lunch: $2.00

Birthday celebrations special activities
Birthday Celebrations/Special Activities

  • Please avoid bring in food for Birthdays (no homemade food items).

  • An even better idea: pencils and stickers.
