Good Afternoon Maxwell Elementary/Middle School Families,
We are committed to keeping you informed and will continue to share what we know during the COVID event by providing weekly news/updates. We are moving our weekly updates to each Thursday, beginning next week. This will give parents/students an opportunity to ask questions prior to the weekend. Our schools are standing by and ready to answer your questions and provide additional support as needed.
It is our commitment to provide support services, social virtual interactions between teachers and students, spirit days, and continuity in education. Timely updates will be provided to parents via our website, Facebook and the DoDEA Notification System. Thank you for your support!

We recognize the hardship this decision places on many families, but believe it is in the public's best interest if it means we can contribute to protecting our students as well as the community's health and well-being.
The following website serves as DoDEA's official source for information on COVID-19, highlighting associated impacts as well as response and prevention efforts. Please continue to visit this website for updates.
Also, we ask families to continue following the COVID-19/coronavirus guidelines as shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that are posted on its website. These include monitoring family members' health for flu-like symptoms and reaching out to a local health provider if these symptoms occur.
Please know that this is a unique situation for DoDEA schools and the nation. We do not yet have all the answers but are committed to communicating with our students and their families as frequently and openly as possible. DoDEA and your community leadership will continue to coordinate closely to ensure accurate and timely information is available and to encourage all appropriate measures to help prevent the spread of the virus.
