Changes Involving Parent Pickup Effective Immediately

Parents and Guardians,

Yesterday there was a traffic incident involving a student at Iwakuni Elementary School. Due to this, changes will be made involving parent pickup in front of IWES and MCPES.

Starting tomorrow, the gate to enter the front of the elementary schools will be closed from 1415 to 1430. The front loop is meant for pick up of kindergarten and Sure Start students at MC Perry only.  Parents with students in these grades should continue to follow MC Perry's program for pick up.

The administrators will be meeting with Transportation and Station Safety to address the needs of parents and school in regards to after school and before school procedures.  Please stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
