New Traffic Pattern at MHS - No Left Turn at MHS Main Entrance Loop

posted by Richard Barden

Due to congestion during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up, turning left into the MHS main entrance loop will no longer be an option. This change will affect vehicles traveling on Ranger Rd. that enter from Pleasant View St. (by the Timony Grammar School). Vehicles traveling on Ranger Rd. that enter from Jackson St. (by Martin's Flowers) will still be able to enter the main entrance loop (right turn). Our goal is to avoid gridlock in this area and improve the overall flow of traffic on Ranger Rd.

Students may be dropped off or picked up at the following locations:
  • MHS bus loop by the field house
  • MHS main entrance loop (when traveling on Ranger Rd. from Jackson St.)
  • MHS faculty and student parking lot on Ranger Rd.
  • Timony Grammar School lot by the MHS South House
  • Nicholson Stadium lot (students use the path to MHS)
Please remember traffic the first few weeks of school is typically heavy. Each day students should plan to arrive to school before 7:00 a.m. so they are well prepared for the first block which begins at 7:15 a.m.

Information Regarding Access to Student Gmail, Infinite Campus (IC), and Student Schedules

posted Aug 13, 2018, 1:50 PM by Richard Barden

Methuen Public Schools Gmail accounts for grade 9 students have been activated. The login process for Gmail is the same as the process students have used in the grammar schools to access Google accounts. The change is that grade 9 students will now be able to access the Mail icon. By selecting the Mail icon students will open their individual Gmail account. Students in grades 10 through 12 have been using Methuen Public Schools Gmail and will continue to have access to their account throughout high school. 

Last year, students and parents/guardians in grades 5 through 12 were provided access to the IC Student Portal and Parent Portal. Passwords have been created by the individual user. If a student or parent/guardian needs to reset his or her password, please contact the main office at 978-722-6040. 

It is essential that students familiarize themselves with the use of Gmail and IC throughout high school in order to access important information. Students will be expected to log in to each account daily. 

We aim to provide all students with the 21st century skills to be successful in high school and beyond. When using email and online platforms, our top priority is the safety of all students. Families are encouraged to review the Methuen Public Schools Internet/Network Acceptable Use Policy and to contact us with questions or concerns.


Student schedules for all grades, 9 through 12, will be available through IC beginning Thursday, August 16, 2018. If there are questions regarding a student's schedule, our guidance office is open daily from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. and counselors can be contacted directly via email.
