Students in grades 7-12 & their parents are invited to check out this valuable career exploration series.  A panel of 4-6 industry experts will share job insights, answer career questions, and usually invite participants for a behind-the-scenes tour.  Counselors & educators are also welcome to attend so you can help direct students to the events that meet their interests & goals.  Many 1st semester events are full, but we still have space in 2nd semester events.  Please choose “general admission tickets” to reserve a seat or sign-up for a waiting list.   Visit our Talk & Tour webpage for links and details to Careers in Engineering & Construction, Public Safety, Music & Communications, Health Care, and more!

Mill Creek Entrances

Have you ever wondered "How do I get in that school? There are so many doors!" Hopefully the map below can help.

All students being dropped off before school and/or picked up after school should use the SCHOOL STREET parking lot. This is for all grades. No students should ever be dropped off or picked up in the Office parking lot.

The Betty Street parking lot is for buses only.

During the school day the only door that is unlocked is the Betty St office. Our office hours are 7:00 - 3:15.
