In-Person Academic Camp

By July 20, 2020 July 22nd, 2020 No Comments

As updates around school reopening guidelines and restrictions continue to evolve, we strive to adapt as needed in order to meet the needs of our community in a safe, high integrity manner. We have just received approval from the Department of Family and Protective Services to offer an in-person academic camp for the three weeks prior to the school year officially starting August 17th through September 4th.

Camp Session 4 (8/17 to 9/4): “Soar into Montessori”

For those families that need their children to attend in person, we will add an additional summer camp session for small, stable groups of children, continuing our current health and safety practices. All groups will have a certified teacher for Montessori work time, and this camp will shift to being more academic, preparing the children for a successful start to the academic school year. Current summer hours of 8:00–5:00 for full-day and 8:00–11:30 for half-day will remain in place.

For the start of the academic school year, families will be able to select from the following options based on their child’s program level.

Upper Elementary
All students will begin the academic year on Monday, August 17 through the distance learning program.

Lower Elementary
Students will have the choice of beginning the academic year on Monday, August 17th through the distance learning program or attending camp in person. For those families whose children need to attend in person, we will have certified Lower Elementary teachers returning to campus for an additional summer camp session which will be more academic in nature and help the children transition to the beginning of the school year. The official start date of the academic year for in-person instruction has been moved to Tuesday, 9/8 in accordance with the Austin Public Health mandate covering both public and private schools.

Primary
Students will have the choice of beginning the academic year on Monday, August 17th through the distance learning program, attending camp in person, or delaying their in-person start date until the official start of the academic year – Tuesday, 9/8.

Toddler
Students will have the choice of attending camp in person or delaying their in-person start date until the official start of the academic year – Tuesday, 9/8.

School will be closed from 8/10 - 8/14 for teacher in service week. We will reopen 8/17 for in person academic camp and our distance learning program.
