SNOW DAY POLICY –

Closings – Montessori Academy will send out a text alert and post “no school” announcements on local television stations 14 WFIE and 25 WHET and.  If you have AM/PM care in your child’s program, you may bring your child for a day care day.

Early Closings – We are not bus dependent and as a rule we do not close early.  Parents, of course, should determine their own level of comfort driving and may pick up early if the need arises.  The exception for closing early would be if very extreme/dangerous weather or road conditions developed.  If this should occur we will contact each family by text alert.

Delays – We are not bus dependent and do not have delays.  School will start at the regular time regardless of what time other schools start their day.

Snow Make-up Days – We do not have snow make-up days.

Building Closure – If a state-of-emergency is declared in Vanderburgh and/or Warrick County Montessori Academy will be closed and will not have school or daycare.

Parent/Teacher Conferences – Please arrive 5-7 minutes early to read your child’s report prior to the conference.

Preprimary Parent Teacher Conferences will be on Friday, November 16th.  The sign-up sheets are posted in the dining room.

School Pictures are in and can be picked up from the office.

Script/Gift Card Orders have arrived and are ready for pickup in the office.

Weather/Outside Play – Our intention is to go outside for some time every day.  Please send your child dressed appropriately for the weather.

Jackets, sweaters, etc. – Please put your child’s name or initials on the tag.  Our Lost and Found basket in the dining room is already overflowing.

CLEAN UP DAY THANK YOU – On a morning with 17 degree wind chill we give a shout out of thanks to:  Andrew and Kam Liu; Dulce Hernandez Perez; Kerwyn Martin, Becky Sights; Suzie Stilin; Karen Gilles; Adam Hill; Christina Branch; Zeljko Kuzeljevic!  The grounds look great!!

PTO Script/Gift Cards – The form for the last order will go home on Monday, November 26 and will be due back on Thursday, Decmeber 6.  The orders will be ready for pickup on Monday, December 10th.  Order gift cards through PTO, pay for the cards at face value and the companies give a percentage back to Montessori.  (ie) Order a $25 Amazon card, write the check to Montessori for $25, you get a $25 Amazon gift card and Amazon sends Montessori 2.25% of your order amount.
