  • Morning Drop-Off Safety

    Safety is the priority as we look at all of our procedures. We want everyone to have a safe arrival to school. Please find below important tips that are intended to keep you and your child safe during the morning drop-off. Thank you for helping us to have a safe year!

    • The building doors open at 7:15 a.m. daily and staff will be present to welcome your child to the building.
    • When dropping off your child in the car lane please pull up as far as possible. Staff will assist your child in exiting the vehicle.
    • For your safety, please observe the no U-turn sign at the drop-off lane.
    • Please be mindful if you park across the street and walk your child to the building that you do not inadvertently block a driveway or other vehicle.
    • Please only use the designated crosswalk to cross the street. The crossing guard is here to assist to make sure that children and families safely navigate the traffic.
    • Announcements start at 7:40 this year and classroom instruction officially begins at 7:45. Any student arriving after this time will need to be signed in at the office by an adult.

  • Maxwell App

    Maxwell has a new app that is designed to provide families with a single landing point for information for the school. The app may be obtained by searching for Maxwell Elementary on your phone’s app store. Be sure to look for the app that contains our school’s logo.
    Once you download the app you will be able to set your preferences and receive updates as they become available. The home page contains links to social media, Seesaw, and other helpful information. We will continue to develop the app over the year so that it becomes a viable communication tool that you will be able to rely upon for current information!
