It has been brought to our attention that some students are being dropped off on campus before school hours, prior to active staff monitoring, and are then crossing back over Highway 5 to get donuts.
We encourage parents to have an open dialogue with each school-aged child about the importance of not leaving campus once they arrive, especially if it is necessary for them to arrive prior to the school’s appropriate dropoff time frame.
Additionally, we encourage parents to understand campus procedure regarding child dropoffs.
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) controls Highway 5. The City of Melissa has been a wonderful partner of Melissa Schools and we will continue to work with them, along with Melissa Schools Police Chief Kelly Davidson and TxDOT, to monitor the safety of all school zones.
