Message from Mrs. Jakubik

  • All Maples students are dismissed at 3:35. Parents are expected to pick their child up at 3:35 when they are dismissed. Please plan accordingly and arrive in time to park and walk to your designated pick-up location.
  • Parents should NOT be stopping cars in the middle of the street to wait and wave children over.  It is VERY dangerous for children to cross the street on their own. 
  • Please follow the traffic patterns and do NOT honk your horn while waiting for the crossing guard to direct traffic. They have an important job and safety is always the first priority. PLEASE bring your patience when picking up your student and model good behavior for your child. 

Thank you for your support at home! 🙂
