Superintendent's Notes

Town Cleanup: Saturday, April 16 – Sunday, April 24

Maynard's annual spring town wide clean up runs Saturday, April 16 – Sunday, April 24.  The cleanup is organized by the Maynard Litter League with support from Maynard's DPW. 
During cleanup week, all residents and merchants are asked to walk the areas around their property and pick up any litter that is there.  Please don't forget to check bushes, gutters and the roadside of nearby undeveloped land.  This should only take a few minutes.  After is clean by your home or business, please consider taking a small bag on a walk one day and picking up some trash along the way. 

On Saturday, April 16 starting at 10am, a group cleanup will be held in the downtown area.  We are meeting near the Nason St. /Main St. island.  To clean up other public areas around town, participants can register on April 19-22 during business hours in the DPW office downstairs at Town Hall, or by emailing MaynardLitterLeague at gmail.com.

The Maynard Litter League, Maynard's year-round anti-litter organization, is working towards the goal of a litter-free Maynard by engaging all members of the community in litter prevention, cleanup, and education efforts.  A small effort on everyone's part makes a big difference in the cleanliness of our town.

Important Events and Reminders:    
                                                                                                 
In an effort to streamline the Superintendent’s Notes, I will provide important upcoming events or announcements that have already been posted in previous Superintendent’s Notes in this section.

Bus registration for the 2016-2017 school year will begin on May 9, 2016.  Registration will take place at the administrative offices located at 3-R Tiger Drive.  Registration Forms will be available on our website and all school offices starting on May 6.  No forms will be accepted before May 9.  There is no fee increase this year.  $270.00 for the 1st student; $220 for the 2nd or more.

School Pesticide Notification

This notification is being sent to you in conformance with the Children’s & Families Protection Act (Chapter 85 of the Acts of 2000).  The Act requires we notify you when pesticides are applied on the outside of public and private schools, day care centers and school age child care programs.

We are having Fowler School, 3 Tiger Drive and Green Meadow Elementary School, 5 Tiger Drive,  treated with the Sentricon Termite Baiting System in response to the presence of termites.  We selected this treatment method to reduce risk and hazard to our student population and staff.  At various times during the course of the year, the Waltham Services Company may remove monitoring devices placed below ground in plastic holding stations and replace them with baits lethal to termites.  The pesticide bait is non-volatile and not accessible or visible from above.

Please feel free to call me at the Business Office at 978-897-8251, Mr. Mela, principal at Fowler School at 978-897-6700 or Mrs. Dankner, principal at Green Meadow at 978-897-8246 should you have questions.
