As we begin our academic year, we understand that safety is top of mind for everyone!
We’ve outlined our safety guidelines below for you all to review. As always, this is an ever changing situation so, as always done in Montessori, we will monitor and adjust as necessary.
If you have any questions or feedback please know we are here to discuss and help ease your comfort as we navigate this new normal together.

Arrival guidelines for children
We will have temperature checks for anyone entering the school. Children will come into the school to change shoes, hang all items: lunchboxes, backpacks, coats, etc.
All children will have classroom shoes and outdoor shoes.
Hand washing, as always, will be done before entering the classroom ie: workroom and at certain times of the day, before eating, after coming inside from the playground/garden.
Face coverings will be worn at all times. We will provide disposable face coverings if needed. Please know that parents may provide others if needed or preferred. We also have children’s cloth face-covering available for $10.
We are fortunate to have an amazing outdoor area and garden. Face coverings will be worn while out on the playground and outside.
Classrooms will be cleaned each afternoon after all children leave. Tables and chairs wiped down and disinfected.
The playground is disinfected every morning before the children arrive.
A majority of these guidelines were routine before COVID-19, other than the coverings and outdoor drop-off/pick up. However, for new students this may be new, so please do not hesitate to reach out.
