The Valley Montessori School buildings are closed through 6/9/2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our dedicated teachers and staff are implementing distance learning during this time.

Preventive Measures are Key!

  • Teach your children to wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Modeling this action as an adult reinforces its importance. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Practice Social Distancing
