Updated Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures at KMS

Traffic Flow Diagram

In order to ensure a safe, efficient and orderly student arrival and dismissal process we have worked with the transportation department to devise a new student pickup and drop off location and routine. Traffic in the morning and the afternoon has posed safety concerns for students. In order to address these concerns the new system works to separate students, buses and automobile traffic to the greatest extent possible. This new system will be in full effect beginning Thursday, November 29th.  


School starts at 7:45 am. Dismissal for student pickup occurs at 2:35 pm. Please note that the doors to the school do not open prior to 7:15 am. There is no supervision of students prior to 7:15 am and students should not be on campus prior to that time.


Designated pickup and drop off times

7:00 am - 8:00 am

2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


During Designated Pickup and Drop Off times: The south entrance on Olympic Way will be open to Bus and Disabled drop off traffic only. Signage will be in place and unauthorized vehicles will be asked to turn around. Students accessing disabled drop off or pickup will be cleared through the nurse’s office. All regular pick up and drop off traffic will enter the main drive on the north side of the building directly across from Cumberland Farms. All traffic entering the north entrance for pick up and drop off will proceed straight past the SAU building, bearing right upon entering the main parking lot. Please do not travel through the Conway Elementary Drop Off area. (Just follow the signs.) Traffic will circle around to the left for pick up and drop off in the designated area next to the football field. There should be no stopping, loading or unloading along the roadway adjacent to the SAU building. After drop off students should walk to the regular main entrance along the sidewalk behind the gym, adjacent to the athletic fields.  I know of no other school in the state that has a comparable scenic view afforded those who can make this walk each day!


All traffic accessing the school outside of the designated Pickup and Drop Off times may enter the south entrance and use our visitor parking in front of the main entrance and cafeteria. This will continue to facilitate ease of access for team meetings, dropping off items or mid-day pick up and drop offs.


As a result of these changes, buses and students will be largely separated from private vehicle traffic. In addition there should no longer be backups of vehicles on Route 16 waiting to access the middle school. In the interest of the safety of all of our students we ask that you follow these new pick up and drop off routines starting no later than Thursday, November 29th. As always, students are encouraged to use our buses as a safe and reliable way to come and go from school.  


If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the middle school.
