Maeser Updates Summer Schedule

Maeser Updates is taking a break for the summer — the next edition of Maeser Updates will be posted on Friday, August 2.

Class Schedules for 2019-20

The PowerSchool parent and student portal will be taken offline on Monday, June 23, to allow us to perform summer updates and run student schedules for 2019-2020.

The parent and student portals will reopen on Saturday, August 3 with 2019-20 schedule information. If your student is new to Maeser this year, you will receive an email during the week of July 29-August 2 with your login information for PowerSchool.

Our counselors will be available the following week (August 5-9) from 9am to 3pm, to work with students needing schedule changes on a first-come first-served basis. The first schedule change is free; any additional changes will cost $10 each.

Activites/Sports Fees for Late Summer 2019 and Early Fall 2019

Some activities/sports begin before school starts. Fees and deadlines will be communicated by teachers/coaches. For fee amounts, please refer to the 2019-2020 School Fee Schedule at maeserprep.org under Parents > School Fees > 2019-2020 School Fee Schedule.

2019-20 Concurrent Enrollment Classes

Students planning on taking a Concurrent Enrollment class during the 2019/20 school year (next year) should begin the enrollment and registration process with UVU now! Go to www.uvu.edu/concurrent and follow the steps.

Sports Announcements

IMPORTANT Changes to UHSAA Sports Physical Policy

UHSAA has made some changes to their physical policy. Physicals that are completed between April 15-July 15 of any given year will be good until July 15 of the following year. If a student has their physical between the dates of July 16- April 14 it will also expire on July 15 of the following year. To make things consistent this will apply to all sports both non-UHSAA as well as middle school sports.

Here are some examples to clarify:

Physical Completed Expiration
December 10, 2018 July 15, 2019
February 20, 2019 July 15, 2019
April 20, 2019 July 15, 2020
June 6, 2019 July 15, 2020
January 15, 2020 July 15, 2020

In addition, sports physicals are required BEFORE tryouts/season practices at all levels (middle school AND high school). Athletes will not be permitted to tryout and/or practice unless/until the school has a current sports physical on file.

Activities/Sports Eligibility for 1st Term 2019-2020

Do you plan on participating in a sport/activity during the 1st term of the 2019-2020 school year? If the answer is yes then your eligibility will be based on your 4th term grades THIS YEAR. That is correct, the grades you earn this term will determine whether or not you can participate and this applies to all current 7th-11th graders. The standard is a 2.7 GPA with no Fs/NGs. An additional requirement for high school students is no Fs/NGs from any previous high school terms. The good news: if you have an F/NG during any previous terms you will have the summer to make them up if needed.

Host Families Needed for Foreign Exchange Students

We still need host families for foreign exchange students who will be coming to Maeser this year! Foreign exchange students make a great contribution to our school, our community, and to your family. Students are carefully selected and screened, and they come with their own health insurance and spending money — all that is required from you is a bed, board and welcome. If your family is interested in hosting an exchange student this year, please call Wendy Waldes for more information: wendywaldes@gmail.com or 801-709-3583.
