Kindergarten and First Grade Dismissal Update

Dear Parents of Kindergarten and First Grade Students,

We will start picking up only first and kindergarten students  from the classroom at dismissal time.

We have to set some parameters for the staff and for parents to ensure a smooth and safe process.

  • We will open the outside doors at 3:27.
  • Parents are to wait in the lobby until teachers open their doors at 3:30
  • Students must be ready at 3:30
  • As the teacher sees the parent, she calls on their child
  • After parents pick up their children, they leave immediately to allow the older students to pass through the hallway.
  • Parents will wait in the lobby or outside weather permitting and wait for 2nd-5th grade students
  • Parents should not wait in the hallway for the older siblings

Let’s work together to make it a smooth process.

Thanks you and I appreciate your cooperation!

Mrs. Faraj

Outdoor Play



Dear Parents,

Please dress your child for outdoor play.  Students will be going out unless it is 19 degrees or lower with windchill.  Students must wear boots, snow pants, winter coat and gloves to play on the playground equipment. It will also be helpful if you label your child’s items with their name.

Please note: Your child should arrive to school at 8:30 a.m. unless he/she is coming for breakfast.
Thank you!

Winter Weather

Greetings Maples Families,

Please be sure to have your children arrive to school at 8:30.  Students will line up inside the building only if temperatures fall  below 19 degrees Fahrenheit with windchill.  If you wish for your child to have breakfast, they may arrive at 8:10 and stay in the cafeteria until 8:30.  This way they are not lining up outside in the cold weather.  I appreciate your cooperation!

Thank you,

Mrs. Faraj


حضرة الأهالي الكرام

الرجاء ارسال أولادكم الى المدرسة في الساعة 8:30 صباحاً. سيسمح للطلاب بالانتظار داخل مبنى المدرسة فقط اذا كانت الحرارة أدنى من 19 درجة. اذا رغبتم أن يحصل ولدكم على وجبة الفطور في المدرسة عليكم باحضاره في الساعة 8:10 صباحاً حيث يمكنه البقاء في الكافتيريا حتى الساعة 8:30 صباحاً. في هذه الحال, تتجنبون انتظار ولدكم في البرد القارس خارج المبنى. أشكر لكم تعاونكم

,شكراً لكم
