CHMS Closed until April 6

March 16 - April 6

To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and “flatten the curve”, CHMS is closed until April 6. Our staff will be at school to meet, plan and prepare for how to support children and families in the coming days, especially in the case that schools are mandated to close beyond the end of our scheduled spring break. We will also be conducting a thorough deep-clean of the school facility and classroom materials. Support for families may come in the form of sharing resources for parents, remote family education, check-ins with guides including recommendations for work at home, etc. During this time, we will also be focusing on professional development for staff to be able continue pursuing the work of our mission and to maintain the standards of our high-quality Montessori education. It is our hope, and tentative plan, that we will be able to re-open as scheduled after our spring break, on Monday, April 6th. For now, we expect to keep paying our hourly and salaried employees, and to continue charging tuition as planned. We will maintain close attention to the situation and communicate regarding any changes in the interim. The board will meet again prior to April 6th to evaluate our plan for re-opening.

Conferences will still be held at the scheduled dates and times, though child care will no longer be provided during the conference. Guides will communicate with families directly whether those will be offered via direct phone call or videoconferencing. Guides will also email Progress Reports to families at or prior to the scheduled conference time.
