The school staff supports the growing child’s independence by communicating expectations for scholarly behavior, aligning values that model good citizenship, and offering personalized feedback.
Instructional Continuity Support
The following information provides students and their families with the school’s practices for maintaining instructional continuity while on-campus instruction is not possible.
Technology Resources Forms
May Sands Montessori Students, Lead Guides, and other members of our Instructional Team use the Google Classroom platform as a modified instructional delivery method during crisis situations:

This is how student passwords are generally configured: 44[LunchNumber]0
