Especially in these times, Joliet Montessori School is dedicated to our mission: to instill in our students independence, a love of learning, and a respect for all - things that our community and world need now more than ever.
With our mission in mind, we created our 2020-2021 Reopening Plan and the detailed Operating Guide for returning to campus, which we created after careful consideration of our parent survey results, Illinois State Board of Education guidelines, CDC guidelines, and our fellow Montessori schools nationwide.
Choice is a key principle of Montessori education, because we know that our students and our families learn and live better when they can choose their direction. We are pleased to offer our families a choice for how they will attend when we reopen in Phase 4: daily in-person learning, or daily in-home learning. We understand and respect the unique situation of each of our families, and we are prepared to serve your child at any Phase we may enter during the 2020-2021 school year.
Please review our Reopening Plan for highlights of the precautions and procedures we will follow to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment as we reopen this fall. A more detailed Operating Guide is attached here .
We will continue to update our plan and guidance based on state and local health authority experts and the CDC.
Most of all, we look forward to warmly welcoming your child back to our halls and calls on August 20.
