Transportation is not provided, and punctuality for all pick-ups and drop-offs is expected for the well-being and security of all students. Your child will not be released for pick-up to anyone other than those persons listed on your application. The addition of any new person allowed to pickup your child (and thus added to the list on your application) must be in writing, and submitted to the Directress.
There is a two-week winter break in December and a two week spring break in March (exact dates are provided at beginning of each school year). A list of other holidays that the school will be closed will be posted on the website at the beginning of the school year.
If the school is to be closed in the case of emergency (e.g. inclement weather), you will be notified via e-mail by 7:30 a.m. We will be following Grand Erie School Board regarding school closures due to inclement weather.
Meals and Snacks
No food containing nuts is permitted on the premises in observation of children with severe allergies. Should any current students have any other food allergies, a description of same will be posted and strictly adhered to.
· On the closest school day to your child’s birthday, the child is asked to bring 5-6 photos of her or himself representing their life year by year. Special treats to be shared with the class on these special days are welcome, as noted above.
· Release of information regarding the student and their progress may be requested if needed to be provided to other parents, for research or educational purposes (non-identifying information only).
· From time-to-time, practicing teachers and co-operative students will be assisting in the classroom. Additionally, parent volunteers are always welcome (see below).
Clothing and Possessions
Students often have accidents and can get quite dirty (e.g. painting, outside excursions etc.), so please be realistic in expectations regarding the state of clothing they are sent to school in.
All clothing and possessions should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Each child is asked to have a full change of clothing (including socks) left in a bag with his/her name on it at the school. If your child is only recently toilet trained, we ask that you also include extra underpants and/or training pants.
It would be helpful if your child carried with them to and from school each day a “backpack” or other type of school bag, as there is often artwork and other types of information/documents from the school sent home with the children.
A student may be dismissed from the school if:
Should any of the above be apparent:
The school will also hold an “open house” once a year, which gives parents an opportunity to visit the classroom and become more familiar with the facility and the Montessori Method.
We invite all parents to become involved in the school in some capacity. This may take the form of volunteering in the classroom, accompanying the students on class trips, or becoming a member of our Parent Committee. However, any parent volunteering for direct involvement with students is required to provide the Directress with a police “CPIC” check, which can be obtained from your local police service, and is often free of charge if for volunteer purposes.
If a child requires medication to be administered during school hours, it must be provided in a clearly labelled container, indicating the type of drug, the child’s name and dosage instructions, accompanied by written instructions by the student’s doctor.
If a student becomes ill during school hours, the emergency contact as listed on the child’s application will be contacted.
