Reminders from the Office

Parents call the office to report a student absence before 9:00 a.m.  Parents may also leave messages before the office opens at 8 on the answering machine on extension 101. Students that have no parental response will be counted as an unexcused absence.

Please fill out the enrollment packet that your child received at registration and return it to school as soon as possible.  It is very important that we have all of the correct contact information to insure the safety of your child. 

Book rent is $20.00 and is due at this time.

All current information will be kept on the website. and just click on the picture of Maple Grove

Newsletters will be emailed weekly on Fridays.  If you would like to add your email to the list, send a note with your child if you did not add it to the registration papers.

Please write your child’s name on his/her backpack across the top in two-inch letters to make it easier to identify backpacks and children as they are dismissing for the day.

Transportation arrangements should be made before students leave in the morning and notes should be sent with your student if at all possible to avoid any confusion.  Notes must be sent with students if they will be riding a different bus than usual or going to a different destination.  Please do not assume that they will be dropped at a different destination just because the student asks to be.  We must have it in writing.  This is for your child’s safety.  Please inform students of these plans before they leave for school as well to avoid any confusion for your child as well.
