Hello Parents and Guardians,

 

Since each student in the district has been placed on Home Instruction due to COVID-19, I will be posting the instruction and instructional activities here for each day that school is not physically in session. I will also be online and available by email at kmontemarano@mtps.org from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to answer any and all questions you may have.  Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns. Please send any building level questions to our principal.  We will all be here to support your children and our community during these difficult times.  

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Montemarano
