Placer County’s COVID-19 case count continues to trend downwards, but it’s still prevalent around Placer County right now. With COVID-19 still prevalent within our County, we need to continue to be diligent - here is our weekly reminder about our basic COVID-19 protocols regarding student illness - a link to our current student illness protocols is available here.

A Coordinator for our Art Docent program. The Coordinator provides guidance and support to each of our volunteer parent Art Docents within each classroom. There is a paid stipend for our Art Docent Coordinator. If interested in leading Art Docent, please contact Mr. Boothby at email@example.com.

After School Care Next Week on Minimum Days
Next week is Parent Teacher Conferences Monday through Wednesday. School will be letting out at 12:00 noon on those days and there will be daycare available for those students that are enrolled on that day. Please let us know if you plan on using the daycare so we can staff appropriately. The charges are $18 if picked up by 3:15 and $25 until 6:00pm.
Reminder: Annual Parent Income surveys
If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment to fill out and return these confidential income surveys. For confidentiality, you may remove the label with your student's name on it and return just the form to the school with the student identification number. We are required by law to collect these. Additionally, some federal funding and grant opportunities are based on the data collected here. The survey takes less than 1 minute to complete, and we will be calling families that have not yet completed their survey. Any questions about the Surveys can be sent to our Business Manager Denise Thorman at email@example.com.
How to Sign-up for Parent-Teacher Goal Setting Conferences: October 4th – 6th, 2021
You are invited to sign-up for your child’s conference which will be held in the afternoons Monday, October 4th through Wednesday, October 6th. You will have online access to schedule conferences starting Monday, September 20th through Thursday, September 30th.
How to schedule your child(ren)’s conference:
1. Go to this link: https://www.canyoncreeksoftware.com/scheduler/ca/mariamontessori/index.cfm
2. “Maria Montessori Charter Academy” and press “Go”
3. There will be a prompt for a school password; the password is: mmca
4. The next screen will ask you to “enter the student’s ID” - we are NOT using student ID’s. Instead, press the “LOOKUP STUDENT ID” button.
5. After pressing the “look up student ID” button, you will be prompted to enter your child’s first name, last name, and birthdate and then press “LOOKUP”.
6. After your child has been identified, the program will ask you to do two things:
a. Select the classroom you want to schedule the conference for (note: ALL of our classrooms are listed by color names, not teacher names); and
b. If you have multiple children that you want to schedule a conference for, it will give you the opportunity to look up the next child (this will give you the opportunity to see multiple classroom conference schedules listed next to each other, making it convenient for your scheduling)
7. The program will take you through a couple of self-explanatory calendar screens, and your conference will be scheduled.
If you are having issues with the software program, you have two alternatives to schedule your conference:
a. You may come into the office to use one of our computers.
b. You may call the office after 9:00am and they can assist you with scheduling.
