School Delays and Closings

Please note that the Montessori Academy will post any weather delays, closings, and early dismissals as soon as the determination has been made to do so. Our information is posted on WGAL (and sometimes it takes a while for them to update their website due to receiving calls from all of the different schools districts and counties it serves.) So, you should also follow the Montessori Academy's Facebook and Twitter pages for posted information.

The schedule for a 2 hour delay is as follows:


  • Beforecare begins at 9:30 am
  • Elementary classes begin at 10:30 am
  • Toddler and Primary classes begin at 11:00 am
  • All students are lunch friends and should bring a lunch with them.
  • Morning students will dismiss at 2:00 pm
  • Afternoon and all day students will dismiss at 3:00 pm
  • Aftercare begins at 3:00 pm, unless notified that it is closed.


Early dismissals will be dependent upon the weather and public school closings.


If your child takes public school transportation, please follow your school district's closing, delay and dismissal information regarding bus pick up and drop off times or cancellation of busing.


You and your child's safety is our top concern so if you feel the weather is too dangerous, please use your judgment and do not travel in conditions you are not comfortable with.


Thank you!
