MAZE Day Information

The MAZE day packets have been mailed, so check your mailbox for yours!

NOTE: MAZE Day Volunteers!entering-maze
If anyone can volunteer on either MAZE Day, your help would be greatly appreciated! Older students are also welcome to help with selling spirit wear, marking off forms or answering questions. Spanish speaking volunteers are needed as well.  If you can help, please contact or call the school office.

What are the dates for the MAZE days?
August 18 – for students with last names M-Z from 4:30pm-7:00pm
August 20 – for students with last names A-N from 4:00pm-6:00pm
Who needs to attend MAZE day?
ALL Roosevelt parents (not just TK/Kinder and new families) need to attend.
I can’t come to my scheduled MAZE day. Can I go to the other one?
Yes. If the MAZE day date that was scheduled for your last name doesn’t work for you, please come to the other one.

I can’t come to either MAZE day. What do I do?
If you can’t attend either MAZE day, please come in to the office on Monday morning before school starts. Be aware that the first day of school is a very busy one in the office, so getting your paperwork turned in and your child’s class assignment will take more time.
I didn’t get my MAZE day packet. What do I do?
There will be blank forms available for you at both MAZE days, so please come even if you didn’t receive a packet in the mail.

Do I have to be at MAZE day for the two hours that it’s open?
No. The scheduled times are just a window. You can come any time during the scheduled time.

What do I need to bring with me?
You need to fill out all of your forms before MAZE Day. (If you are having trouble with any of your forms, assistance will be provided during both MAZE days.) In addition to your completed forms, bring your checkbook, credit cards or cash. Once you’ve turned in all of your completed forms, you will receive your child’s teacher/class assignment.

Why don’t the MAZE day packets go out earlier?
The paperwork doesn’t go out until just before school starts for many reasons:

1. The school office is closed and the staff is on vacation until the second week of August.
2. The office doesn’t receive the final enrollment list until the weeks before school starts, so even if the office was open, they wouldn’t have a complete list of addresses
3. PTA volunteers have to submit pieces for the packets
4. Everything has to be translated and then copies must be made.
5. One packet per student (over 650 this year) has to be assembled.
6. A mailing that big has to be scheduled with the Post Office by Gwen

The packets cannot be mailed out much earlier than they are because it wouldn’t be possible given the above timetable and logistical constraints.
