MCES Weekly Top Five For Parents

UPDATES AND REMINDERS FOR THE WEEK OF MARCH 1

A Message from The Administration Team

Good Day and Good Morning to Our Montclair Families,


On March 15, 2021, all Cumberland County Schools will transition to Plan B, in which our schools will now go to a Blended Learning environment. As we prepare to bring back our students and staff, Montclair's leadership team would like to inform our families of a few important announcements.


First, The Administration Team will host a Plan B Transition meeting on March 10, 2021, at 5:30 PM. We will cover several topics to include, including expectations for parents and students for Plan B, transportation expectations, and scheduling information during this meeting. On Monday, March 8, 2021, Mrs. Powell will be sending out the presentation to the students' emails. Linked to this presentation will be a google form in which families can ask administration questions. Families will also have the opportunity to ask questions live during the meeting on the 10th.


Additionally, on Monday, March 8, students' schedules will be emailed to their email addresses. The Cohort assignment for each student will be included in the schedules and the days that students will be in person, and the days that students will remain remote. The Administration team will also share students' bus information to the students' email for families who opted for Transportation during Blended learning. Please note that the administration team will only send this through students' email addresses. Please make sure that you have access to your student's email account.


Lastly, as a reminder, you cannot change this request for the parents who have opted for Remote Learning for the remainder of the school year. However, parents who have decided on Blended Learning can change their option for their students to remain Virtual.


If you have any questions, comments, or concerns for administrators, please feel free to click on our google meets linked to this page's bottom. If not, we encourage you to have a Terrific Tuesday.
