Distance Learning

Elm City Montessori School is in the midst of a temporary school closure to protect the health and safety of our school community. We will collaborate with the city, state, and public health agencies to determine when we can safely reopen. We will continue to share all updates with our families. We encourage you to sign up for City Hall/Mayor Justin Elicker’s email updates: mailchi.mp/newhavenct/signup and New Haven Alerts (www.newhavenct.gov/gov/depts/emergency_info/alerts.htm).

We want to ensure that learning continues. To that end, our Instructional Team has met to develop and implement an evolving plan for distance learning.
