For Parents/Guardians

  • Maxwell App

    Maxwell has an app designed to provide families with a single landing point for information for the school. Search 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 can set your preferences and receive updates. The homepage contains links to social media, Seesaw, and other helpful information.

    Start times

    School doors open at 7:15 a.m. each morning, and announcements begin at 7:40 a.m. Classes are scheduled to begin promptly at 7:45. Students who arrive later than 7:45 a.m. must report to the office for a tardy slip. 

    Drop-off

    Students may be dropped off in front of the school. Parents/guardians are not to leave cars unattended, and stops should be as short as possible. Students should be ready to exit as soon as the car reaches the curb. Reasonable caution should always be exercised when entering and exiting a car. Drivers should be prepared to pull away from the curb as soon as their children are a safe distance from the car, and providing traffic allows. Families must not walk their children to the door, or sit and wait until their children have disappeared from sight. If this is your desire, then you must park somewhere other than in front of the building and walk your child to school.  

    Lunch

    Feel free to come and have lunch with your child’s class, but remember to sign-in at the office first. Also, please understand that fast-food meals are not allowed in the cafeteria. See also our Cafeteria page.

    Transportation

    Transportation changes should be communicated to the office by 1 p.m.

    Car riders

    Please adhere to parking/pick-up instructions. No car rider will be dismissed from the front of the school. All children must wait in the gym to be picked up between 2:35 and 2:45 p.m. by an adult on the list we have on file at school. Drivers need to show their car tag or a picture of the tag to enter the gym. If you do not have a tag, you need to first stop by the office. Also: Cars should not park in the bus lane or in front of the gates during afternoon/bus dismissal. We need to make sure that all buses have safely left before any cars attempt to pull into these spots. 

    Emergency procedures

    The safety and welfare of students and staff are our highest priority. We practice safety drills throughout the year to help our students know what to do in an emergency. However, a crisis can happen at any time, anywhere.  Effective and safe schools are well prepared for any potential crisis.  If a situation should arise that would necessitate the evacuation of our building please follow these guidelines. You are not to call or come to the school during an emergency. If an evacuation is recommended while classes are in session, students will be sent to our designated host outside the emergency-planning zone. This will serve as the student pick-up point where you can take custody of your children. Maxwell Elementary students and staff would evacuate to Woodland Christian Church, 530 E. High St. at (859) 266-3416.
