The health and safety of our community, including students, families and our staff is our utmost priority. For the 2021-2022 school year, Riverside Montessori Academy will offer an On Campus Program for ALL Preschool and K-4th Grade Students. If advised by Riverside Public Health for all schools to transition to online learning, Riverside Montessori Academy is fully prepared to re-launch their Learn From Home Program.
Riverside Montessori Academy creates inclusive Montessori environments allowing children to progress according to their own pace with confidence. Whether online or on campus, our program and its teachers remain devoted to this mission.
RIVMA On Campus Program
The safety of our students and staff are our utmost priority. As such, new health and safety protocols have been implemented that are in accordance with CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and CDPH (California Department of Public Health) guidelines. The changes we have incorporated are guided by our mission and remain focused on ensuring that our children feel safe, are happy, and can return to some normalcy in their familiar school atmosphere.
In order to allow for necessary social distancing and safety precautions, our campus will be closed for visitors. Additional changes will include detailed drop-off and pick-up procedures, temperature checks throughout the day, intensive training for teachers, enhanced cleaning protocols, smaller class sizes, and diligence in ensuring that our children, families and staff are safe.
For further details on our COVID-19 protocols and procedures, please see our Reopening Plan.
