For our Parents : Updated August 10th, 2021

We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it changes daily.  The protocols listed below are what will be in place for the beginning of school but could be changed if the situation warrants it:

  1. Masks – Any unvaccinated adults on campus must wear a mask.  Masks are optional for vaccinated adults.  Masks are optional for students.

  2. Hand washing – throughout the day, recorded

  3. Wiping hard surfaces – throughout the day, recorded

  4. High-quality air filters – changed monthly

  5. Classroom separations – The Montessori way of learning does not lend itself to social distancing; children cannot sit in desks surrounded by a plastic shield.  That being said, we will be doing modified “bubbles” (e.g., preschool/kindergarten will go out to play by classroom as will the elementary students).  Commingling will occur at 3:00 p.m. in after-school care, 3:00-5:00 p.m. Blue, Red, and Yellow Rooms will join.  Elementary will join 3:00-5:00 p.m.  All school children will be together in lower level building from 5:00-6:00 p.m.  Elementary and preschool/kindergarten will be in separate rooms.

  6. No classroom visitors will be allowed during the first six weeks of school; this may be extended.

  7. We are hoping “Lesson Demonstration Night” will happen where parents can be with their students.  It usually takes place in late September or early October.  We will keep you updated.

Maintaining these protocols looks to the safety of our school community while respecting the individual’s right to decide.  As previously stated, we will adapt and inform you should changes be made. 

We ask that you please help us help you by being conscientious about the exposure you have as a family outside of school hours.

Sincerely,

Adele Fondo, M.Ed.
