Our Montessori classrooms continue their remote learning schedule. If your family has a conflict with attending Meets or completing work due to illness or other reasons, please remember to contact your child's teacher and let them know. They are trying to be flexible with families as we know this is a challenging time for us all. Working as a team will help us all!

Please remember to update your address with us so that packages and letters can get to you in a timely manner. You can take a picture of proof of residency and send it to your child's teacher or administrator.


Remote Learning will continue through December 11th. If you need support for getting onto Google Meets or accessing activities, please contact your child's teacher.

We look forward to welcoming you back on campus on December 14th-18th. Stay safe!
