There will not be school on these days.  Child Care will be available, however you must sign up in advance. There will be no drop-in’s.

**Please email Susan at susank@countrymontessori.org to let her know which days you would like and if you will need half-day (less than 5 hours – $25) or full-day (over 5 hours – $45). Child care is open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm. In keeping with our COVID-19 policies and procedures, arrival times remain the same during downtime with 7:30-8:40 being the window for drop off.  

Music Class News

Our beloved music teacher Dennis Short, who has been with CMS since January of 2009 is retiring.  Dennis has grown his successful music business over the years and we are very happy and proud of him.  We have been so very fortunate that he has been able to juggle both careers for as long as he has and knew the day would arrive that he would depart from CMS.  

Dennis has touched the lives of hundreds of students over the years.  His curriculum and teachings have inspired and exposed our students to various aspects of music education.  Dennis has a special ability to work with children of all ages, keeping them engaged and enthusiastic.  

Our annual musical and largest school wide event, The Spring Fling, evolved during Dennis’ tenure.  He took the performances to a level of excellence and professionalism while giving the students the opportunity to show their creativity and talents. This beloved event is a favorite and we are eternally grateful to Dennis.  Dennis’ last day is Friday, April 2.  He will be missed greatly by all and we wish him the best with his business!  

We are close in our search for a new instructor and will keep our CMS community informed.

We truly appreciate our families for your support and partnership and working with us as a team!

It is imperative to keep an open dialogue with us regarding illnesses and travel.  We are all in this together and want to keep our students, families, staff and school healthy to the extent possible.  Please let us know if you plan to travel or if anyone in your household has been exposed to, has COVID or has symptoms.  

Please notify the office if your student will not be in class or is sick.  Should your child be sick all families need to inform the office and we will provide further mandated guidance.  When our students are sick we want them to rest so virtual class is not permitted during illnesses.
