A Note from Deba

How wonderful to finally have your children in the school! Thank you for choosing us to partner with you on this amazing journey of growing in all ways.

What a joy it is seeing students exploring classrooms, reconnecting with old friends, and making new ones. Observing children’s curiosity, their eagerness to be challenged and inspired, and knowing we have a full year ahead of self-discovery, is the reason we chose to be at Thacher Montessori.

Our staff loves what they do, and they do it well. You are in caring, dedicated, professional hands. Returning families know they can always connect with their guide if they have questions. I encourage our new families to feel empowered to connect with your guide if you have questions as you navigate this amazing Montessori world.

Of course, I am always available to you, as well as Michelle Seyller, Assistant Head of School.

Enjoy this beautiful weekend and look for new outdoor installations when you come back next Monday.
Dismissal Update

We implemented the use of walkie-talkies for dismissal today, and things went smoothly. Thank you for your continued diligence in arriving at your designated cohort time. This makes a vast difference in the smooth flow of traffic and the safe dismissal of children.

This is how you can assist in a safe and efficient dismissal:

  • Name placard clearly displayed on your passenger-side visor (flipped down). If you need additional placards, please email the front desk.
  • When receiving your child, ensure they are safely buckled and exit the parking lot as safely and efficiently as possible (this is not the time for a quick chat with your child's guide, email your guide to schedule a time to talk).
  • Please follow staff directions for pulling forward and where to stop your car.

We are re-evaluating the carpool/sibling dismissal protocol and will have an update for families next week. Again, thank you for your patience while we make course corrections to improve this experience.

Adjusting to a new school year and navigating afternoon traffic takes time and patience; not to worry. It can be a few weeks before things fall into place. We understand and appreciate the complexities involved in acclimating to a new system, and we thank all families for your efforts.
