MARK YOUR CALENDAR
TOMORROW - FRIDAY DECEMBER 6TH
Friday Dec. 6th is early dismissal for students, they will leave school at 10:55am, for teacher grading. Please note that lunches will not be served this day. No
after school activities or activity buses.
If you are planning to pick up your student early from school, please allow plenty of time. We are on an Assembly Schedule that day, with each grade going to the assembly at different times, so it may take some extra time to locate your student.
When someone other than a student’s parent or legal guardian is going to check out a student,
write and sign a note that specifies the date and name of the person you’re allowing to sign your student out of Maywood. We will confirm the person’s identity matches the name you’ve provided at the time of check out. Your student needs to
bring the signed note to the main office in the morning before school.
Your student’s safety is our concern.
Emails and phone calls are not acceptable.
Emergency contacts are not legal guardians.
Anyone checking out a student must have a valid picture identification.
Internet Safety Assembly Schedule December 6th
On Friday December 6th, Maywood will be hosting its annual Internet/Online Safety presentation with Stefanie Hanley of the FBI. The presentation helps students to understand and increase their awareness of being safe while online. For example, Ms. Hanley
covers topics on how to and how not to use social networking; texting; Instagram/Snapchat; putting private information online, etc. The presentations are delivered to each grade level with attention paid to age appropriateness.
