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.
