Mark your calendars for "Parents' Night!" We cannot wait to see all of you!  This fun, informative event will start promptly at 4:30 p.m. in your child's homeroom classroom. The teachers and administrators have great information to share with you about your child's "home away from home."

"Club Eagle AfterCare" will provide special child care for Park Maitland students who need a place to "hang out" (so that you can enjoy the "Parents' Night" events). Childcare is available for only $15 per child. Simply contact Club Eagle by email at    aftercare@parkmaitland.org    or by calling 407.647.3038, ext. #159. Children who attend AfterCare regularly can follow their usual after school protocol and can be picked up after the "Parent's Night" event.

Message from the Security Manager:

I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome the new families to Park Maitland. I also wanted to thank all of the returning families for working together last year to ensure the safety of our Park Maitland family. I hope everyone experienced a fun and productive summer. As we start the new school year there are a couple of things I wanted to remind everyone about:

  • Please refrain from using cell phones while in the car pool lines.
  • Please have your child or children ready to exit your vehicle as you arrive at the station during drop off.
  • Please have your name placard visible until your child is in your vehicle during dismissal.
  • Please be patient and respectful to other drivers and our neighbors in the surrounding community.
  • Please DO NOT park in the parking lot on Orange Place and walk into the school through the Orange Place gate during dismissal. It is dangerous and slows down the vehicles trying to exit.

Remember we must all work together to ensure the safety of our students, parents, faculty and staff at Park Maitland. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at: jjohnson@parkmaitland.org or call (407) 647-3038 x248.

Thanks you in advance for your cooperation,
Jesse Johnson
