COVID-19 Updates
We would like to thank the Palos Verdes Montessori
community for their continued cooperation in following
the pandemic guidelines. Although we have learned about
encouraging news regarding the vaccine, we need to
continue to be vigilant about following the protocols,
especially in the winter. The teachers and staff implement
these guidelines not only in the children’s daily activities
but will also do so with the upcoming special activities.
