Health and Safety Responsibilities:
During the summer of 2021, we know we will all still have a part to play in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases within MCMS programs. All families and children attending MCMS summer programs will be required to follow COVID-19 mitigation measures in effect at the time of attendance. Families are asked to personally observe all mitigation protocols recommended by public health professionals at the time of attendance and as communicated through MCMS policies, to help us ensure the safety and health of all of our community.
These mitigation measures may include, but are not limited to: proper mask wearing by adults and children ages 2 and older, efforts to maintain physical distance, proper hygiene and frequent handwashing, daily health screenings, and isolation and quarantine procedures if symptoms develop or there is known exposure to COVID-19 or other communicable illness. Then-current mitigation protocols will be shared with all families prior to the start of camp.
Enrollment and Payment Responsibilities:
Payment of program fees are due one week prior to the start of camp. Withdrawals must be submitted in writing at least one business day prior to the start of each specific camp. An administrative fee of 15% will be applied to all withdrawals, and registration fees are non-refundable. No refunds are available without this written notice in advance.
MCMS will make every effort to run summer camp programs as planned, but in the event any program must be cancelled prior to the first day of the program due to insufficient enrollment or forces and events beyond the school's control, MCMS will notify all enrolled families and issue refunds of program and registration fees.
If, due to forces or events beyond the school's control, MCMS must close the school or cancel a program for one or more weeks after the program has begun, a partial refund of program fees may be offered for full weeks missed. No refunds will be offered for partial week closures or cancellations, or any period when a child is absent from summer programming while it is in session.
*For the Montessori Summer Camp and Summer Splash programs, children must be at least 2.5 years old by the beginning of the first selected session, and must be fully toilet-trained. Children who will be at least 6 years old on September 1, 2021 will be invited to join the elementary summer camp.
