Weekly News & Announcements May 3rd, 2021


Hello Maybury Parents & Scholars and welcome to week 18 of 2021!


Please pay close attention to the information listed this week as we are closed 2 additional days this week, have summer school enrollment available, device return dates and state testing and map testing information! Before diving into all that, RECOGNIZE a teacher today!


Let's all take a moment and recognize our incredible educators as it's officially Teacher Appreciation Week!


A+ Arts Academy is proud to celebrate and honor our wonderful teachers and all of the incredible teachers across the nation this week. Please feel free to send a thank you message, card or any other kind gesture that you deem appropriate this week as we recognize these everyday superheroes!


100% Virtual scholars are testing onsite this week Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for Math during the 9:00 am or 12:00 pm session. If you haven't scheduled with your scholar's teacher yet, please do so ASAP!


**Please ensure your scholar brings their school issued device (fully charged) with them when coming onsite to test as we do not have any additional devices for scholars to use!


Summer school enrollment is available NOW!!! Check out the Sylvan flyers and download the parent enrollment form to get your scholar signed up! This is a great way to prevent the summer "slide" and to fill in academic gaps your scholar may have or a great way to provide enrichment for those that need it!


  • Our school day runs from 8:00-2:00 pm. Onsite scholars should be picked up at 2:00 pm, but no later than 2:15 pm as our teachers need to transition to teaching their virtual scholars. 100% virtual scholars will receive live instruction from 2:30-4:00 pm. Your scholars teacher will communicate directly with scholars and parents via email, class dojo, and kickboard with login platforms and information. 100% virtual scholars all have required work to complete throughout the school day so it is imperative that they/you are consistently checking their emails and submitting the required work.


  • For hybrid scholars, dismissal is promptly at 2:00 pm. All scholars MUST be picked up by 2:30 pm at the absolute latest as there will be no adult supervision provided beyond 2:30 pm. We will issue a verbal warning the first time a scholar remains onsite beyond 2:30 pm, a written letter warning the second time and the third time we will issue a letter and contact the Columbus City Police Department/Child Services out of concern for the scholar's welfare. If you know that you are running late or have arranged for an alternate method of pickup, please ensure you have contacted the front office no later than 1:30 pm to communicate this information.


  • PLEASE remember to have your scholar bring their device each time they come onsite. Have them charge their devices the night before so they are ready to rock and roll when the school day begins!


  • Please be sure that your scholar is logging on daily at his/her scheduled time. Attendance is taken every day. We are mandated by the state to withdraw any scholar who misses 72 consecutive hours of school.


Enrollment: Please see the flyer below regarding our sibling referral program! Now is the time to get your Kindergarten scholar enrolled for the upcoming school year!
