Have Your 2021-22 Plans Changed? Please Let Us Know ASAP!
If your plans for 2021-22 enrollment have changed and your student will not be attending Maeser Prep, please contact us ASAP to let us know by emailing us at email@example.com — please include your student’s name, their 2021-22 grade, and the school they will be attending next year. We are sending out record requests for our new students and want to help you avoid having your student’s school file sent to the wrong school. We are also creating schedules for next year and want to make sure students can get into the classes they’ve requested.
Thanks so much for your help in keeping our records up to date!
Maeser Updates Summer Posting Schedule
Maeser Updates will be on hiatus for the summer break from July 2-23. Weekly Updates posts will resume on Friday, July 30.
PowerSchool Summer Availability
The PowerSchool parent and student portal will be taken offline on Thursday, July 1 to allow us to perform summer updates and maintenance, and to create student schedules for 2021-2022.
The parent and student portals will reopen on Monday, August 9 with 2021-22 schedule information. Schedule change information will be given at that time.
If your student is new to Maeser this year, you will receive an email during the week of August 2-6 with your parent login information for PowerSchool.
Fall Schedule Update
We hope you are enjoying your summer break! We are well underway for our preparations for the upcoming school year, and want to let you know about some important changes and expectations. This information will hopefully help you to prepare for school in the fall.
New School Schedule
We experimented and learned a lot this past year, and we’re excited to implement some of those positive experiences. This year we will be continuing Advisory Fridays. Regular, in-person classes will be held Monday-Thursday, from 8:00am-3:30pm for all students. Advisory Fridays will run from 9:00am-1:00pm.
Advisory Friday Expectations
Fridays will continue to be treated as an official school day for students to take tests, get individualized help from teachers, work in small groups, participate in mentoring activities, and do make-up work. Teachers may assign specific times for students to come to campus to take tests, quizzes, and labs. Additionally, teachers may use Google Classroom to assign and collect homework on Fridays. As much as possible, families should treat Fridays as they would any other school day.
This coming school year students will not be required to wear masks. Students who are sick are encouraged to stay home to avoid making others sick. If a student misses school, it is the student’s and parent’s responsibility to proactively communicate with the student’s teachers to make sure that all work is received, understood, and completed in accordance with Maeser’s homework policy. We are still waiting from direction from the state about testing and mask policies for sports and other extracurriculars.
Students will be able to see their class schedules in PowerSchool beginning August 9th. This allows administration, the counseling department, and teachers time to thoroughly review student schedules beforehand, which will minimize the number of schedule changes that need to occur.
Please DO NOT contact the counselors about schedules prior to August 9th. Student schedules aren’t created until late summer, so the counselors do not have this information to give out prior to August 9th.
We will be sending out additional information as the school year gets closer.
