Countdown to Fall Classes!

Have Your Plans Changed?

If your plans have changed and your student will no longer be attending Maeser this fall, please contact our registrar asap at registrar@maeserprep.org so we can make that seat available to one of the many students on our wait list.

Help Us Stay in Touch with Your Family!

If any of your contact information has changed – email address, mailing address, phone number – please let us know so we can stay in touch with your family.

Class Schedules

Our PowerSchool parent and student portal is now available for the 2017-18 school year. You can log in to view your student’s fall schedule at http://maeserprep.powerschool.com/. All of your Maeser students should be linked to your account and you can switch students by clicking on the student’s name at the top of the screen. If you have a student who is not showing up in your account, please let us know so we can get them linked properly to your account. The counselors will be available for schedule changes beginning August 1st.

If you have an existing PowerSchool parent account from a prior year, your new student has been added to your existing account and you should be able to log in using the same username and password you have used in the past. Parents of new students should have received an email on Tuesday, July 25th, with instructions on how to log in to PowerSchool.

If you have forgotten your username or password or are having difficulty logging in, you can reset them using the “forgot username/password” link on the login page and entering your email address. If that does not work, or if you have questions about how to use PowerSchool, please email info@maeserprep.org.

Volunteering at Maeser

Planning to volunteer this school year?

Maeser asks each family to complete 40 hours of volunteer service for the school each year (20 hours for single-parent families). The State of Utah requires all parents who will be interacting with students — whether helping in the classroom, chaperoning field trips, driving for field trips/competitions, etc. — to complete an annual background check. Getting your background check is easy! Simply pick up the paperwork at the front office during office hours (or download it here), take it to your local police department and get fingerprinted (usually free for residents; check with your local police department for fingerprinting hours), and return your fingerprints and paperwork to the school during office hours. The school will cover the cost of your background check. We appreciate your help in ensuring our students’ safety!

Need to report your volunteer hours?

If you’ve completed volunteer hours for this school year but haven’t yet reported them, please visit the form on our website to report those hours: Report Parent Service Hours.

Don’t have time to volunteer?

Did you know you can make a donation in lieu of volunteer hours? Volunteer hours can be “bought out” at $7.50 per hour (or $300 for the full 40 hours). Donations can be made at the front desk during office hours or on our RevTrak fee payment site (you will need your PowerSchool parent account information to log into the Revtrak site). If you make a donation in lieu of volunteer hours, please remember to record your donation at the link above.
