    Drop Off

    Mountain Park-Drop-off and Pick-up

    • Primary drop-off and pick-up location would be using the front driveway of the school.
    • Secondary drop-off and pick-up location would be using the path to Rutgers Avenue (near Oakland intersection).
    • This will have a temporary crosswalk and have BHPD support during drop-off and pick-up until the Mountain Avenue bridge work is completed.
    • Please avoid all drop-off and pick-up on Mountain Avenue due to the ongoing construction work on the bridge.


    Road Closed
    ***The Berkeley Heights Department of Public Works notified the school district that Mountain Avenue will remain closed until at least the middle of October. Those who live west of the bridge should not be affected. Those who live east of the bridge should consider using Rutgers Avenue as an alternative. Those students can walk down the newly resurfaced path from Rutgers Ave to the MPS playground or parents can drive down Rutgers and make the left on Hamilton in order to access Park Avenue to get to MPS.   Our regular crossing guards will be in place and I am told that BHPD will provide additional support as we work together to make student safety our number one priority.  Please be in touch at any time (908 – 464 – 1713 Ext. 4510) if you have any additional concerns. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on September 5th.***
    ***Please do not leave your car running when parked while waiting to pick up students after school.***
