We believe the school plays a vital role in a child’s development and overall well-being. Our goal is to maintain the health, safety and mental wellness of our entire community while providing the nurturing and academically challenging school environment. Following guidance from the CDC & Georgia Department of Public Health, Milton Montessori plans to begin the 2020-2021 school year offering onsite & virtual classrooms.
We recognize that we cannot know the specific health and wellness challenges each of our families faces, and we understand that it will be impossible for us to meet the needs of every student. Therefore, we will support parents who choose to keep their children home and prefer a virtual program. We have invested heavily in technology in an effort to create an equitable experience for those learning remotely (please ask for details of our Virtual Classrooms / Distance Learning). We ask that families work in concert with their physicians to determine whether a child will attend school in person.
A safe reopening in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic will require the full commitment of every member of our community. We expect our faculty, staff and parents to lead by example, modeling proper behavior and good judgment for the children in our care. We understand that there are risks involved in reopening and that it may be impossible to prevent a case of COVID-19, but we can help prevent its spread by closely monitoring the situation and abiding by certain protocols.
We ask for patience, understanding and flexibility as we navigate ever-changing circumstances, and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.
