We are quickly approaching that time of year when inclement weather will be affecting our school schedule.
The Academy follows the Chambersburg Area School District school closings and late openings schedule in the event of inclement weather. Please listen to your radio when conditions warrant: WCHA 800 AM, WIKZ 95.1 FM, and your local TV station, WGAL Channel 8 (Channel 8 also posts on their website: http://www.wgal.com/weather/closings) . You can also phone the Chambersburg Area School District hotline 261-8000, or check their web site www.chambersburg.k12.pa.us.
In addition, the Montessori Academy website (www.montacad.org) and our Montessori Academy of Chambersburg Facebook account will have delays and cancellations posted as soon as we are notified.
If schools are delayed two hours, classes begin at 10:45 AM for all full day students. Classes will be canceled for AM only students. If schools are dismissed early, our students will arrive home early based on the time of the dismissal.
The ExCEL Before Care (AM) program will not be held on late arrival days. However, the ExCEL After Care (PM) program will be open on late arrival days. In the event of an early dismissal due to weather conditions, there will be no ExCEL After Care (PM) program.
If this would be a problem for you, please make arrangements for alternate supervision at home. Students being driven to school should be picked up by you at the time of the early dismissal. Please attempt to be reasonably prompt in picking up your child on these extraordinary days. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Academy office.
If the Chambersburg district is open and your district is closed, no transportation will be provided. Please use your discretion when making the decision whether or not to transport your child on such days.
With over 20 years of experience in education, Ms. D’Antonio has been with the Academy for 16 years and been Head of School since 2010.
