Secured Entrances September 15, 2023 Hopefully all of our parents have been on campus already to see the new secured entrances at each building. In all three student attendance centers, another set of doors has been added to help keep our kids safe and make our flow of traffic more efficient. I could not be more proud of our recent campus improvements, as we work hard to make Mendota #289 the best that it can be for our kids! Please reach out with any questions that you may have by dropping me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be safe. Be well. K.
