The priority application deadline for students living in the nine member towns was February 15. On that date, Minuteman had received a total of 303 applications for 175 ninth-grade slots for the fall of 2022 solely from member-town residents. An additional 99 students living outside the member towns had also applied. Minuteman will likely have a waiting list for member-town students due to the high number of applications received.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there has been a 140% increase in employees in the transportation and warehousing industry since 2012.
