The school is in the midst of an exterior building construction project, and crews are finishing the north end of the building. Traffic should avoid the active construction project there and the parking lot to the north of the school. Construction will halt during parent drop-off and pickup times for safety.

Please click here to watch a video about the new parent pickup/drop-off lane south of the Maize Performing Arts & Aquatics Center. The parent pickup/drop-off lane will not be accessible from Academy Avenue this year, even after construction is complete.

With the help of Maize Career Academy's award-winning broadcasting student program, the district will make additional school videos about parent pickup and drop-off processes available soon!
