• Fewer cars make campuses feel welcoming, safe and easy to approach on foot. When choosing how students commute to and from school, families should determine the best options in light of their children's age and experience.  



    Due to COVID-19 MPCSD will not be able to offer fee-based neighborhood transportation as it has been able to do in the past. 

    Should bus transportation capacity free up at some point later in the year, we will work to begin filling that capacity with fee-based neighborhood transportation. Parents should operate on the assumption, though, that it won’t be available for the 2020-21 school year.
