School Cancellations

Maplewood Preschool follows the Omaha Public School district’s decisions regarding cancellation due to inclement weather. 


Children with any of the following conditions should be kept home until the condition has been gone for at least 24 hours:  fever, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, skin rash, and red or matting eye.

Drop Off and Pick Up

Please escort your child into the education wing of the building. 

When picking up your child, please wait by the classrooms in the hallway.  Teachers will dismiss from the classroom.  Please use the south door exit for dismissal. 


Tuition is due the first week of each month.  Tuition must be paid to hold a child’s place in preschool, even if the child is absent from school due to illness, vacation, holidays, or school cancellation due to weather conditions.  An advanced notice is appreciated when a child is to be withdrawn from preschool.  A MAXIMUM REFUND of one week’s tuition will be granted ONLY when notification of withdrawal is made during the first week of the four week tuition period. Discounts available for yearly prepayment and second child.  Contact the Director for details.  


Children will receive a snack each day.  We are a peanut free school. Parents are welcome to sign up to bring snacks for their child’s class with the Director or their child’s teacher. 


You are welcome to visit at any time.  Advanced notice is appreciated.  Please schedule visits with the Director and/or your child’s teacher. 


The child will bring home a ‘Partner Pouch’ folder in their backpack each day.  Please check daily for information from the teacher.

Parent newsletters will be sent home monthly with your child.  They are also available on our website. 

Please check the Events page of our website and/or Facebook for updates on events and happenings.

Progress notes are sent home in November and April. 

Parent teacher conferences are held in November for all classes.  Parent teacher conferences in April are optional.   

Parents are free to call anytime with a question or concern.
