The letter from Malgosia Tarnowska, the owner and founder of Warsaw Montessori Family.
I am writing to inform you that according to Directives of the Polish Prime Minister and of Polish Ministry of Education:
– as of Monday, March 16th:
all activities/classes will be cancelled in all of our schools/campuses until March 25th
– we will hopefully be allowed to re-open on Thursday, March 26th
– tomorrow, Thursday, March 12th and Friday, March 13th, the schools will be open for those of you, who mustsend your child/children to school.
I would like to ensure you that all of our teachers will be available on the e-learning platforms to you and to your children (older students, only).
Each campus will have an e-learning platform plan for you. We will send detailed information later this Friday afternoon.
We would strongly ask all of you to follow the recommendations of Glowny Inspektorat Sanitary (Chief Sanitary Inspectorate), WHO instructions of prevention of corona virus disease.
Please let’s all be full of care and responsibility in all of our daily routines for the good and well-being of our children and our families.
Below please find the letter from Polish Ministry of Education.
