Dear TEAM Mitchell Parents/Guardians:

As the new school year approaches, we wanted to inform all of you of our morning drop-off & afternoon dismissal procedures for all students.  These procedures were created with the assistance of the Bridgewater Police and Fire Departments as well as Lucini Bus Lines in an attempt to provide the safest possible arrival and dismissal of all students. 

In the morning, all parents are instructed to enter the front of the building via the entrance on Mt. Prospect Street.  No one is to enter the parking lot at the set of lights on Center Street.  All cars should proceed to the front of the school with the first car parking at the stop sign at the corner of the building (next to the Mitchell School sign).  At 8:50 a.m. staff will come outside to begin unloading students.  Students will enter the building and wait in the gym lobby until being dismissed to class at 8:55 a.m. The goal is to unload approximately 20 cars at a time. As soon as your child exits the car you may proceed to the exit and leave the parking lot via Mt. Prospect Street as long as the car in front of you has departed (NO PASSING) in the drop-off line.  Also, it is a right turn only out of the parking lot.  Please see the attached map for specific directions for entering and exiting the parking lot in the morning before school. 

All bus students will now load and unload buses at the horseshoe located on the side of the school.  No buses will load or unload in the front of the building.  Buses waiting to load or unload will park and wait on Mt. Prospect Street both in the morning and afternoon.  Please see the attached map for all bus procedures.

In the afternoon, all parents picking up students are instructed to park in the front of the building and come to the gym lobby doors to pick-up students.  The doors will open at 3:20p.m.  Parents are instructed to enter the gym lobby with their ID visible to pick-up their child.  Once you have received your child, please safely proceed to your car and exit the parking lot via any of the three exits provided. Also, we cannot dismiss children via telephone requests but you may send an email request to  If you do not fill-out a dismissal form or send in a note or email, you must report to the Main Office and sign your child out of the building. Please see the attached map for specific directions for exiting the parking lot in the afternoon.

If your child will be attending the BASE Program drop-off and pick-up procedures will remain the same.  No changes will be made to this process.  Thank you!

Please realize that the safety of everyone is our top priority.  I know these can be somewhat confusing to comprehend.  Thus, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Thank you.


Dennis S. Bray, Principal  and Erek Bratt, Assistant Principal
