    Due to health concerns related to COVID19, a new CAR RIDER ROUTE MAP has been created for our school campus.  It has also been created to move the traffic off of St. Bernard Highway as quickly and safely as possible.  Please study the map to avoid confusion as you drop off and pick up your child from TMS.  



    In the morning, when you are dropping off your child, you must enter our campus on WEBSTER DRIVE and stay in a single file line.  This is the first change.  Stay in a single file line of cars as you travel this route and do not attempt to pass other cars as you travel the route.  This rule is in effect for the safety of our staff and students.  From Webster Drive, take a RIGHT onto PIRATES COVE DRIVE and continue to follow the road to the right of our school cafeteria.  Drive to the rear of the school to proceed to the grade level DROP OFF areas.  Signs and staff members will be there to guide you.  The first stop is the 8th GRADE DROP OFF area.  The second is the 7th GRADE DROP OFF AREA and as you make your way back to the front of our building, you will see the 6th GRADE DROP OFF AREA.  Do not drop off a student at a grade level other than their own!  Also, do not drop off students in any of the parking lots around our building in an attempt to bypass the route. This is unsafe and unfair to other drivers and will not be tolerated.



    In the afternoon, when picking up your child by car you will follow the same route as morning drop off.  However, there will be only one PICK UP area in the afternoon.  That area is in the front of the building for all grade levels.  Do not attempt to turn left onto Pirates Cove from Webster in the afternoon.  You must turn right and follow the single line of traffic to the area where you child will be able to safely pick up your child.  New Car Route
