Maumee Schools Plan Kindergarten Info Meeting

An informational meeting for parents of children entering kindergarten in the Maumee City Schools next year will be held on Tuesday, February 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center at Maumee High School, 1147 Saco St.

The meeting will inform parents about kindergarten expectations and what to do to prepare their children to enter kindergarten in August. Required documents, immunizations and college- and career-ready information will also be discussed. Enrollment/registration packets will be available at the meeting. Parents will learn how Maumee’s online enrollment/registration process works and how to self-schedule their child for a kindergarten screening appointment in March.

All resident children who will be 5 years old on or prior to August 1, 2023 are eligible to attend Maumee’s kindergarten program. Unless a child successfully completes a kindergarten program, he or she is not permitted to enter the first grade.

Please save the dates below for Maumee’s kindergarten screening days. Individual kindergarten screening appointments are set once a parent completes their child’s online paperwork. A screening appointment is required for all incoming kindergarten students to assess school readiness. Screenings will take place at the Performing Arts Center at Maumee High School, 1147 Saco St.:

Wednesday, March 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. for Fort Miami Elementary students.

Thursday, March 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. for Fairfield Elementary students.

If you are unsure if your child should attend Fairfield Elementary School or Fort Miami Elementary School, neighborhood lists will be available at the information meeting and you can find the information on the school district website: www.maumee.k12.oh.us (search New Student Enrollment Kindergarten).

For additional information, please contact Michele Loboschefski, principal of Fairfield Elementary, at (419) 893-9821, or Jim Amspoker, principal of Fort Miami Elementary, at (419) 893-2201.
