Beginning today, Montville Public Schools will be in full celebration mode in honor of American Education Week, Nov. 13 to Nov. 16.
In the spirit of the celebration of American education, and as posted on the schools website, “parents and interested citizens are cordially invited to visit our schools during that week and, if they so desire, to participate in the school lunch program.”
Speaking from experience, it’s always a blast to have lunch with your kids, even if they’re not onboard!
So you know, here are the school hours: all Montville elementary schools are in session from 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., Leonard J. Tyl Middle School from 8:10 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. and Montville High School and Palmer Academy are in session form 7:35 a.m. until 2:05 p.m.
“Visitors are encouraged to ask questions about our many programs and policies and should feel free to observe the children at work and at play,” the district advises.
There are a couple of ground rules: “To avoid confusion and for the protection of the children, visitors should notify the school office in advance of their intention to visit a school. Likewise, if they plan to have lunch at the school, they should give advance notice so that the school personnel can plan accordingly.”
This is a great opportunity to “get involved and see what’s happening, and what better way than to visit during American Education Week.”
