Greetings Parents and Students:

I hope that you are enjoying your summer vacation and that you are looking forward to the start of the upcoming school year. We had a successful year at Maple Hill Jr./Sr. High School and are looking forward to continuing that success this upcoming year. We have spent the summer preparing for next school year and are looking forward to your return to the classrooms on Thursday, September 5th.

To help make a successful transition into Maple Hill Jr. High School, we have planned a Grade 7 and 8 Ice Cream Social for parents and students in the cafeteria on Thursday, August 29th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. At the ice cream social you will receive valuable information that will help you have a smooth transition to a new school. There will be school staff available to help answer any questions you may have. Master locks and locker assignments will be available to 7th graders during the orientation. 8th graders have their locks already and their locker assignments will remain the same as last year. Only school issued locks may be used. We will also be handing out schedules and helping you to understand how to read your schedules.

Maple Hill Jr./Sr. High School will continue communication with parents and students through monthly eNews emails and our website as well as the e-school parent/student portal. You can also “Like” the Schodack Central School District on Facebook or follow our Twitter page @MapleHill_HS. Information regarding e-school portal can be found at

There are three separate Chemical Health programs at the beginning of each sports season. If you plan to participate in sports during the 2019-20 school year, you and a parent are expected to attend this workshop prior to your sports season. The Fall Chemical Health Night is Monday, August 19th at 6:00 pm in the auditorium. The fall sports “Meet the Coaches” meeting will be prior to the Chemical Health Night.

Enjoy the remaining days of your summer vacation! We are looking forward to a new and exciting 2019-20 school year. I am looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks.
