Have Your 2023-24 Plans Changed?
If your plans for 2023-24 enrollment have changed and your student will not be attending Maeser Prep, please contact us ASAP to let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org — please include your student’s name, their 2023-24 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!
2023-24 Class Schedules
PowerSchool is currently offline to allow us to perform summer updates and maintenance, and to finish creating student schedules for 2023-24.
The parent and student portals will reopen on Monday, August 7 with 2023-24 class schedules. 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 1-4 with your parent login information for PowerSchool.

Used Uniform Sale
All Maeser families are invited to join us on Wednesday August 2 from 6-8 PM in the Maeser Lunchroom for the Used Uniform Sale. This sale is an opportunity to allow parents to sell their old uniforms, and for parents to purchase needed uniforms in good condition at a low cost.
We will only be selling items that parents bring to sell. Please bring your used uniforms to sell!
To SELL items: Drop off labeled items (envelope safety pinned to item, labeled with Name, Phone, Venmo QR code, Description, Price) that have been laundered along with the Parent Waiver Form (filled out) to the volunteer at Maeser (lunchroom) on Wednesday Aug 2, 8:30-9:30am or 3:30-6:00pm. All unsold items need to be picked up within 30 minutes of the close of the sale. Any money or clothing not picked up will be considered a donation to the school.
To BUY items:The used uniform sale is mostly CASH ONLY — bring lots of $1 and $5 bills. If parents who are selling items would like to write their Venmo Username (with QR code or last 4 digits of phone) on their envelopes, you can use Venmo, too. Checks and credit cards will not be accepted.
To help our school community, the Maeser Uniform Committee has created a suggested guideline for pricing:
Polo shirts: $3-$5
Dress shirts: $3-$5
PE clothing: $2-$5
Embroidered Sweater $10
Hooded Jackets: $10 – $15
Volunteer Help Needed!

Fall 23-24 Sports Academic Eligibility
Eligibility for participation in fall sports/activities will be determined by 4th term grades. All students (middle and high school) must have earned a 2.7 GPA with no Fs. In addition, high school students cannot have any Fs/NGs/Incompletes from previous high school terms. All Fs/NGs must be made up by the last day of term.
All students, middle school and high school, who will be playing sports this year (2023-24) need a physical in order to play. Physicals completed on or after March 10, 2023 are good until July 15, 2024. Any physicals completed before March 10 of this year will not be accepted (per UHSAA policy) for the upcoming school year.
Here is a link to the UHSAA form which Maeser uses for ALL athletes: UHSAA Physical Form
If your student is a senior and is taking classes from MTEC or planning on completing an internship, please make an appointment with Kathryn Chapman. Slots are available for the first two weeks of August. You can schedule by going to https://www.maesercounseling.com/counselor-info-appt and clicking on the “make an appointment with Kathryn” button. Be on time and help our meeting to remain focused on the task at hand. We only have 20 minutes for each senior.
Class Change Requests
This year it is very important to use the class change request form to ask for a change in the student’s schedule. Do NOT email us and ask us for changes. We will not accept ANY class change requests by email. You can email your student’s counselor with questions or issues, but you MUST fill out a class change request form to change a schedule.
The counselors will send the class change request form link to your student’s Maeser email address on August 7th. This is also the day that schedules are available in PowerSchool.
Can We Reach You In Case Of Emergency?
It’s important to keep your contact information up to date and opt-in to receive text messages from Maeser — in case of an emergency, this is how we notify parents! In addition, we use your contact information to notify you about important school events and school fees deadlines.
Here’s how to make sure you’re getting all of our important announcements and information:
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, student fees, 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”.
Update Your Contact Information
If any of your contact information has changed – email address, mailing address, phone number – please let us know asap so we can be sure you’re getting school and teacher communications.
Thank you for helping us keep in contact with your family!
