Behind the Pony: the MESD Mail System

Everything you never knew you wanted to know about those bins...
From Rich Wehring

Danny Moreno delivers important parcels
The Pony (the MESD mail system) is a complex exchange of packages, envelopes, documents, and lost & found between the MESD and its component schools, programs, and districts. This exchange happens every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm.

One or two mail bins are exchanged at each of the 20 pick up locations, and these deliveries cover 100 miles. The pony stays within the boundaries of MESD's 8 component districts, and it takes about 7 hours start to finish to complete the deliveries.
Rich builds relationships with school personnel during a delivery
The Pony delivers only small items—mostly things that will fit in the bins; transportation gets to deliver all the fun big stuff—and there generally isn't anything too exciting found in those bins. No live hedgehogs or delicate sculptures made of Silly Putty have been reported.

MESD is really big on Wellness, so if you're wondering whether the Pony prefers sugar cubes or carrots, the answer is obviously the latter.
