A Safe Environment for Learning
Maple School is a safe place for students to learn and grow. Our school has a Safe School Plan that is in place and updated yearly by the School Safety Committee. We schedule evacuation drills on a regular basis to ensure that staff and students know what to do in an emergency. We also provide adequate supervision before school, during break/recess, at lunch, and after school. All of our classrooms are clean and orderly and provide a safe environment to support teaching and learning.
We encourage Maple parents to be involved in their children’s education. Participation in parent/teacher conferences, Family Night activities, the PTO, SSC, and ELLAC will tell your children that you care about their education. When they see that you are involved in what goes on at school, they will, in turn, be more invested, do better on tests, and reach their potential academically and personally.
