Dear Maryvale Community,

We are excited for the 2018-2019 school year and we thank you for the continuous support you give us to help us do our best for the students at Maryvale. As partners with us in your child's education, there is no limit to what we can accomplish for them together.

There are many exciting changes across the District for this school year that will affect everyone and I'd like to take some time to highlight them for you here.

NEW BELL SCHEDULE

Our new bell schedule is posted here: https://www.maryvaleufsd.org/cms/lib/NY02208569/Centricity/domain/8/archive%20file/student%20calendars/MARYVALE%20UFSD%20Bell%20and%20Teacher%20Schedule%2018-19.pdf

ALL STUDENTS ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR A HEALTHY BREAKFAST AND LUNCH AT NO CHARGE

The Maryvale School District is pleased to announce that we will be implementing a meal certification option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for 2018-19. This certification option is called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). It means that all students enrolled at Maryvale are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge. No further action is required of you. However, you will receive a household income form/survey in the mail. We ask that you complete and return the form in order to help the District secure other additional funding from grants and other resources as we continue to try and minimize our dependence on the local tax base.

Students wishing to buy a second breakfast, second lunch or ala carte items are encouraged to pre-pay for them. Simply go to www.myschoolbucks.com, click register for an account, setup an account, and prepay with your credit card, debit card, or electronic check. Please note there is a $1.95 fee charged by the company for each transaction. Placing more money on your account at one time will minimize the cost of doing this online if you choose to do so. Choosing to utilize “myschoolbucks” will allow you to monitor your purchase history and balances online.

The goal of the Maryvale School District Meal Program is to offer good nutrition to students and teach them healthy eating habits. We hope the program also encourages students to eat well-balanced meals at home.

If you would like more information, please call the School Lunch Office at 631-7435 or Melinda Evans at 631-7485.



NEW MAIN CAMPUS TRAFFIC PATTERN

Please note that when you drive onto the main campus this year, there is a new traffic pattern that you must follow.

-Buses will now pick up and drop off students at the front of the IS/MS and HS.
-The interior bus loop (front of the Binner, HS and MS) will be off limits to all traffic from 7:00AM- 8:15 AM and from 1:45PM- 3:00PM. These times will be limited to Bus traffic only.
-Parents wishing to drop off and pick up students must follow the designated arrows painted on the pavement.
-Traffic will flow one way during pickup and drop off times as follows:
-IS and MS pickup and drop off: Enter via Maryvale Drive and follow the Blue Arrows to drop off/pick up in the rear of the buildings (there is an option to continue to the HS to pickup and drop off another student). Exit to Union Road near Tennis Courts.
-HS pick up and drop off: Enter via Union Road near Tennis Courts and follow the Yellow Arrows to drop off/ pick up at rear of the building. Exit to Union Road near Tennis Courts.
-During the times between 7:00AM- 8:15 AM and from 1:45PM- 3:00PM, the arrows must be followed and the only exit from campus will be near the tennis courts onto Union Road.
-No students can be dropped off or picked up in the front of the buildings (flagpole side) unless they are arriving outside the times of 7:00AM- 8:15 AM or leaving outside the times of 1:45PM- 3:00PM
-We will soon post a link to videos showing the correct way to proceed on campus and where to drop students off and pick them up.


MAIN ENTRANCE SECURITY MEASURES

At our Primary, Intermediate and Middle Schools (places we do not have Door Monitors), for the safety of our children we have bolstered both the physical entrances and the procedures to get into our buildings during the day as follows:

-Once allowed inside, the foyer will funnel people directly into the main office, where our staff will scan your ID into the Raptor system.
-NO ONE will be allowed inside without presenting ID and having that ID scanned.
-The clinic has been moved so that it is behind the sealed area and plans are being made to have children escorted to the main office rather than being picked up at the clinic if needed.
-Parents dropping off medication or wishing to speak to the nurse can do so either before or after school in person, or via phone or email.

"Maryvale solicits public comments on facial recognition."

Just two members of the public attended the informal session, held during the board’s reorganizational meeting, but board members and district administrators still committed to a deliberate decision-making process, complete with more public input, regarding the possible purchase of SN Technologies’s Aegis security suite.

Superintendent Joseph D’Angelo presented a litany of common concerns about facial recognition technology to the board, which he said were all things the district would need to consider.

“There’s privacy concerns, concerns about oversight, who controls the images that are in the system [and] how can they be used in the long term,” D’Angelo said, also noting potential profiling and tacking concerns.

Good morning Maryvale Teachers and Staff,

I’m sure you already know this, but you have one of the most challenging jobs in the world. Teacher appreciation week is a chance for communities to reflect on what teachers mean to them and to their children. It is great to see the notes of thanks from the kids posted around the buildings, the catered lunches from our great PTO’s and the gifts and flowers that our students brought in for their favorite teachers.

But your impact on kids and on our community extends much farther than you know and realize. Confucius said that if your plan is for a year, plant rice; if your plan is for ten years, plant trees; but if your plan is for one hundred years- educate children. That speaks to the lasting impact you have on the kids who are lucky enough to walk through your door and see you every day. Who you are to your kids is vastly more important than what you teach.

You are a role model, a leader, a shoulder to cry on, a person who inspires others and who is in turn inspired by the kids as well.

In these hectic times, it’s good to reflect on why each of us got into this profession. Remember to be for your kids who you needed when you were young and remember that each and every student is one caring teacher away from being a success story. (J. Shipp)

Our Maryvale students are lucky to have you and I am lucky to work with you.

I hope you’ve had a great week so far!

~Joe

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The 21st Century Afterschool Program will be offered again next year at Maryvale Primary and Maryvale Intermediate schools.

We will not be able to offer the 21st Century Program before the school day. HOWEVER, THE YMCA WILL BE PROVIDING BEFORE SCHOOL CARE FOR A FEE. A separate registration packet for this will be available from the YMCA on May 1st in the main offices of both school buildings.

The hours for the program for next year are as noted below:

Primary Site: 3:30-5:30 pm Monday-Friday
Intermediate Site 2:50- 5:30 pm Monday-Friday

The 21st Century Program at Maryvale has been designed to improve academic achievement and pro-social development among targeted students and their families. We will collaborate with a select group of community- based organizations to offer students a wide variety of afterschool clubs focused on the arts, community outreach, and cultural enrichment. All of these activities will be tied to the core academic curriculum.

Our afterschool program will begin in October 1st, 2018 and run until May 31st, 2019. We know that students who are involved in these types of programs after school tend to be more engaged during the day, which can lead to increased academic achievement. We hope that you and your child will take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you and your child into our new 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool community!

Please return applications ASAP to secure a spot for next year.
SPACE IS LIMITED!

Please call the building offices for any questions about this program or the before school care.

Sincerely,

Mrs.Giangreco Mrs. Crumb
