We are focused on three major areas in our operations planning:
- The health and safety of our MAC community,
- The ability to deliver our mission and educational excellence to our students, and
- A sustainable reopening and long-term financial health for the school
We assembled a COVID-19 Task Force in March 2020 to make informed decisions and focus on matters related to the pandemic including school closure, a sustainable school reopening, and the health and safety of MAC staff and students. We consulted with our licensing specialists, compliance specialists, Denver Public Health, Colorado Heads of School, and took into account information from our Governor, Mayor, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Denver Public Health, the Denver Preschool Directors Group, Health and Human Services, the National Association of Independent Schools, the Association of Colorado Independent Schools as well as the input from our Task Force advisors.
The below guidebook has been developed to help parents of The Montessori Academy of Colorado (MAC) understand how MAC will operate for the foreseeable future following the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic and public health guidelines currently in place as a response to the pandemic. There may be additional public health orders (such as reverting back to a stay-at-home response phase versus a safer-at-home response phase) or additional guidance MAC must follow. This guidebook would then be updated and redistributed as necessary to reflect such changes.
While it is not possible to eliminate the risk of COVID-19, MAC’s goal is to limit exposure and prioritize the wellbeing of our community. If you have further questions or concerns, please direct questions to the COVID Task Force (firstname.lastname@example.org).
COVID-19 Response Guidebook for Parents
We know childcare and in-person learning is important for parents and students of all ages. In this guidebook you will find what MAC is doing to help lessen the spread of COVID at our school and maintain open classrooms to the extent possible.
