What follows is a brief descriptor for the routes that our students, parents and guests to MVL should take for the first segment of construction:

From New Ulm
MNDOT recommends that use 7th North Street past the 14-15 interchange and take County 21 all the way to County 12. Turn right onto County 12 and take that to Highway 14. Turn right and head to MVL.

The second option is to take Highway 68 and then turn left on County 45 to go to Courtland. In Courtland, turn left onto 14 and take that to MVL.

MNDOT advises against using 561st to come to MVL. If you’ve driven it, you will understand why.

From Courtland and points east
Highway 14 will be open from Courtland to MVL starting on Monday.

Coming from Mankato, take Highway 14 to the Nicollet exit. Head left (south) through the two roundabouts and drive to County 25. Take a right onto County 25 and take that to Courtland. Get back on Highway 14 and take that right to MVL.

You may also take Highway 68 and turn right at County 45 and go through Courtland to get to Highway 14.

From the North using Highway 15
You can continue the way that you’ve been taking or you can use County 21 to 12 and to Highway 14 to MVL.

Travel safely!

Student Driving

MVL encourages the use of school buses and vans for transportation to and from the school. Students licensed to drive motorized vehicles to and from school may do so. Operating a vehicle on school property in a manner that endangers the lives of the driver, passengers, pedestrians, and people in other vehicles will result in restrictions of driving privileges by the Dean of Students. Law enforcement may be notified and involved.

Students are required to register their vehicles in their enrollment on FACTS.

MVL is a closed campus, and, therefore, students are to remain on the campus until the end of the school day. Students may not leave the campus during the school day without prior written permission from the parents and notification to the Dean of Students.

When MVL athletic teams travel to away games, team members are expected to ride transportation provided by MVL. An athlete may travel home from away games by parent’s signing them out or providing a written permission.


In order for vehicles to efficiently and safely maneuver in our parking lot, all vehicles are expected to be properly parked during school hours. Vehicles are properly parked when they are within the yellow markings designated for parked vehicles. The Dean of Students will deal with those students who park improperly.
