Student Safety and Supervision

Students are expected to maintain the level of respectful and safe behavior that is present throughout the school day. If there is a failure to follow proper procedures, instructors reserve the right to expel a student from the program.

Classes begin when noted. For these classes, students will be dismissed directly to their SEP classroom and Instructors are responsible for children until a parent picks them up. SEP classes are considered a change in dismissal. You must inform your child’s Sands classroom teacher of the specific SEP class dates prior to the first class. Please also inform the Instructor directly if your child will be absent from an SEP class for any reason. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our children safe and supervised!

For the safety of the children, all doors to the school will be locked. The instructor will walk their participants to the front door (unless otherwise designated) where the parent or guardian will sign out the child(ren). Please be respectful of the Instructor’s time and pick your child up promptly at the end of class. Class dismissal times vary, as do specific term dates, so be sure to check for exact times. There will be a late fee at the discretion of the provider.


Ms. Sharon McCreary was a beloved teacher and principal of Sands Montessori before her retirement in 2005. It was her vision that no child should be denied enrichment experiences based on ability to pay. The SMPO is proud to offer scholarship money in her honor, and in service to her vision, for eligible students enrolled in the SEP. Learn more here.
