Parent Feedback Opportunity: 2020-21 Fee Schedule

Our February board meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 11 at 7:00pm at the school. This board meeting will include a segment for PARENT FEEDBACK regarding the 2020-21 Fee Schedule (click here to review the proposed fee schedule). The fee schedule is a list of all fees that the school may charge during the school year. The Utah State Board of Education has outlined guidelines for approval of fee schedules and this includes two parental input meetings. We held one of these meetings in January; the second and last meeting will be the February board meeting. The board will adopt the final draft of the 2020-21 Fee Schedule in March to meet the April 1 deadline.

Brighton Ski/Snowboard Program

In February and March 2020, Brighton Ski Resort will be offering group ski/snowboard lessons for Maeser families and friends (limited space available). This is an after-school activity provided by Brighton Ski Resort and is not sponsored or run by the school. In order to participate in this activity, the participant must be 8 years old or older.

The ski/snowboard program will run for 5 consecutive weeks in 2020 — February 28 and March 6, 13, 20 and 27 — from 4:15 to 6:15pm. Plan on being there at 4 pm because the classes leave at 4:15 sharp. After each lesson, students will be able to ski and snowboard on their own until 9:00pm.

The cost of the ski program is $125 for students ages 8 and up. This price includes the lesson and the night pass to ski/snowboard. Ski and snowboard rentals, which include boots, poles, skis, or snowboards, are available for $75. There is no pro-rating for lessons or rentals that are unused. You may also choose to bring your own gear. Helmets are highly recommended but are not part of the rental package.

This program is sponsored and run by Brighton Ski Resort. Transportation to/from the resort is the responsibility of the student/family. Neither Maeser nor Brighton will be providing transportation. However, there is a UTA bus that runs to the resort if you do not wish to drive.

Remember, this link is a special price for just our Maeser community! Parents who sign up to ski/board have the option to take lessons or not, the price is the same for the lessons and the passes or just the passes.
