August 2023 Hawk Talk
Welcome Back Message
On the first day of school, all parents will be allowed to enter the gate and stand in line with their children. Teachers will have signs out on the playground to designate where each class should line up. Once your child's teacher comes out to greet everyone, then parents can leave out of the front gates, and students will go inside the classrooms. Parents will not be allowed to enter the building unless they are cleared through our front office.
As always, this Hawk Talk is filled with everything you need to know for the month. Please take a moment to read through it carefully, so you and your student start off the school year on the right foot.

Front of School Safety Reminders Slide Show
Also, ensure your child knows who is picking them up each day and has a designated meeting spot so they are confident about where to meet them. Tk-1st grade students will stay with their teacher until an adult has walked to the gate to meet them.
Please DO NOT encourage your child to wait at the park across the street. There is no adult supervision there. Instead, pick a spot in front of the school to meet your child. Any child who has not been picked up and is still on campus after 15 minutes will be brought into the office to call home.
In the front of the school, we have been able to add some enhanced safety features this school year, including a fence and retaining wall to help families stay safe as they walk up to our front gates. We also have new signage in our loading and unloading zone as well.

Make sure to complete the Data Confirmation Process before the first day of school in order to see your child's teacher. Click on the link below for more information.
This is a great opportunity to meet other parents and learn all about what is happening at Maple Hill this school year from Ms. McNeil!
Back to School Night Information
Teachers will present important information about their classroom and the expectations in their classroom this school year. These presentations are on a rotating schedule to allow you to visit each teacher if you have more than one child. Because this is an evening for teachers to share the year’s program, we ask that children do not attend due to limited classroom space and no supervision on the playgrounds.
