    “While the “brick and mortar” portion of our school remains closed to parents, children, and adolescents at this unprecedented time, our school remains “open”. I am so proud of the efforts that our staff have made to adapt, evolve, and implement distance learning at all of the levels that we serve, 18 months through 8th grade.”

    “At Chesapeake Montessori, we view ourselves not only as a great school for our local community but also as a beacon for Montessori education throughout the region. And we will return to the classrooms, the playgrounds, the library, and gardens of our school together again soon. We will come together again as a community, face to face, but we must always remember that we are a community, dedicated to Montessori education and to the unique experiences for learning it provides our children, no matter if we are on our campuses or in our homes.”

    “This is a social crisis, not a school crisis. If we provide preparation for ourselves, as adults, the hope is our children will be prepared to meet their crises head-on in their generations.”
