Mountain Lion Minute
Week of November 2nd
Mountain Lion Families,
We've now completed our first few days of hybrid learning at Montgomery. It has been so refreshing to see our students in the building! Thank you for your continued patience as we navigate face-to-face instruction and virtual instruction at the same time. I have to give a tremendous amount of credit to our staff. This has been a monumental task, but they are doing it with grace and dedication.
Without question, there may be times where we experience some hiccups. There will be times when the classroom teacher is late to a Google Meet because of an unexpected student and/or building issue. There will be times where a teacher may need to unexpectedly meet or turn off the camera in order to best assist a student in the classroom. There will be times when classes will be working on general routines that can only be done face-to-face, but may not make sense to be doing from home (practicing how to walk in the hallway, how to wash hands, how to socially distance, etc.). Without question, the safety of students is our primary concern, and we need to create that safe environment and explicitly teach these basic expectations while students are here in the building. This will require some patience from our learners and parents/guardians while at home, and I thank you in advance for your support.
I will be providing further communication/ updates regarding parent drop-off/ pick-up in the coming days as we prepare for the arrival of our students in grades 3-6. Please be on the look out for that important communication.
As a reminder, there is no school for students on November 2nd and 3rd. Friday, November 6th is a hybrid 2 day for students in grades K-2 and there is early dismissal this day at 1:40. Students in grades 3-6 start their hybrid schedule the week of November 9th.

Renae is always there for her students and cares about them very much. She is innovative and willing to try new and creative activities for her students. Renae can be a calming voice when things get a little stressful at work and is always there to listen to you. I am so happy I have gotten to work with her for many years. Renae loves the beach and has stayed at Avalon over many summers. She also enjoys going to Florida visiting her parents' house and taking in the Florida sunshine. She loves animals especially her chocolate lab Jax who is always keeping Renae on her toes. Montgomery is lucky to have such a fun, dedicated, and caring teacher and person in Renae!"
