Superintendent's Notes

Maynard Public Schools will be Starting in Three Weeks :)                                                              

Summer goes by so quickly and we are already three weeks away from the start of school for students on August 29, 2013.  If you would like to print a copy of the most recent 2013-14 school year calendar, you can go on the school website under “Documents to Download” at this link and find a printable PDF:

On the Maynard Public Schools home page, under announcements (on the right side of the page), it is identified that buss passes will be mailed out the week of August 12, 2013.  Also, if you are interested in finding out about student class assignment(s) before school starts, that information can be found by contacting the school building office.  They will be able to notify you when that information will be ready and where it will be posted.

Hi Everyone,

It's hard to believe it's August. To ensure your son/daughter is eligible to play sports please make sure to take care of the following:

Current physicals
: These must be on file in the nurse's office of the school your son/daughter attends. Physicals are only good for 13 months. If your son/daughter has an appointment during the summer, please send the form to the central office at 12 Bancroft Street to my attention (Kevin Caruso), or have your son/daughter bring it to the first day of practice.

Online registration
is at the following website:

New this year is the one time only registration for all three sports.  Please make sure you read the Student-Athlete handbook that is located in the Athletic Forms tab.
