Full Dress Uniforms
Students are allowed a combination of 6 tardies/excused absences per class per term. Any additional tardies/excused absences result in an NG (No Grade), and must be made up in Attendance School. Excused first period tardies count towards that limit.
If your student will miss an extended amount of school due to illness or a medical condition, please provide a doctor’s note to the front desk so those absences will not result in an NG.
Important AP and Concurrent Enrollment Information
IMPORTANT AP Class Enrollment Procedures
If your student is taking an AP class this year, please be aware of the following:
- Every student enrolled in an AP class at Maeser is required to take the AP Exam associated with that class. (Art students may take AP Art for two years before submitting an AP Portfolio.)
- A $100 AP exam fee will be assessed on September 1st for each AP class enrollment. AP Art students will be assessed the AP Exam Fee in their first year of enrollment; the fee will be waived for the second year of enrollment.
- Students whose AP exam fees are not paid by the October 3 fall fee payment deadline will be DROPPED from their AP class(es) at the end of Quarter 1 and placed in another class.
We appreciate your support in keeping our AP tradition strong!

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. That is correct, the grades you earned during the 4th term of the 2018-2019 academic year will determine whether or not you can participate and this applies to all 8th-12th 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. If you do have an F/NG from a previous high school term, you have until August 16 to make up the F/NG. It is the responsibility of students to be aware of their individual grades and not the responsibility of the coaches and administration.
