Help Us Stay In Touch!

Opt In For School Text Messages

Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts, and more. We will only use text messaging for urgent and important information.

You can participate in this service by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587. You can also opt out of text messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

Thank you for helping us keep in contact with your family!

Remember to Update Your Contact Information

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

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.

2020 Summer Reading Program

If you’d like to participate in this year’s summer reading program, you can check out all the details here: 2020 Summer Reading Lists. This year’s community text is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

Maeser Mural Design Contest

Students, would you like to design the next mural at Maeser Prep? Maeser is planning to add a mural on the wall, above the main bleachers, in the gym. Paint or draw your mural design ideas in color, and email them to Mrs. Fosse by August 24, 2020 to be considered. You can also email Mrs. Fosse with questions about the contest.

Maeser School Uniform Policy and Dress Code

We encourage ALL parents and students to review our Uniform Policy and Dress Code to learn why we wear uniforms at Maeser and to understand the dress code.

Due to the current circumstances Maeser will not be accepting Used Uniform donations at this time. We will also not be holding the bi-annual Used Uniform Exchange in August. This year, we encourage you to find family, friends, or neighbors to exchange uniforms with. You may also exchange uniforms on our Facebook uniform exchange page: Karl G Maeser Student to Student Uniform Swap.
