COVID-19 UpdateThe campus will be closed from March 17th to April 30th. We currently anticipate returning to campus on Friday, May 1. As the situation evolves day to day, the reopening date could change. We will continue to keep you informed.
Starting March 31st, we will return to class using distance learning through Zoom and other online resources at all levels including the youngest members of our MSOL family, our 3-6 year olds. Teachers have worked through their spring break to prepare lesson plans, class schedules and resources that will provide students with an academic routine and parents with support and access. Spanish, Mandarin, PE, and Music will continue with online lessons. After school Cooking, Art, Zoology, Soccer, Crochet, Chess, and Yoga specialists are also converting their programs to 2D. See the Distance Learning tab to view classroom and course pages. Please note you will need a password to gain access, which will be emailed to parents.
Please overview the Learning From Home Handbook and utilize these online resources to keep your children engaged during this time.

Scientific research shows
We learn best when we are interested in what we are learning.
People thrive when they feel a sense of choice and control.
We learn best when our learning is situated in meaningful contexts.
Extrinsic rewards reduce motivation and level of performance once the rewards are removed.
Children can learn very well from and with peers; after age 6 children respond well to collaborative learning situations.
