- About MMS
Reentry to school or work after vacation often brings new vision and fresh perspective. The down time of summer revitalizes adults and children alike. Greeting the youngsters on Day One is one of my favorite moments of the school year. Students return with taller bodies, longer or shorter hair, huge smiles (sometimes with new front teeth) and jump off the bus looking for faces both familiar and new at the bus stop.
Communication of Change in Transportation:
If you are changing your child’s transportation arrangements, please call our school office the day of the change and inform the receptionist. They, in turn, with notify the teacher and write a note for the bus monitor, so all are aware of the change.
The Lower School regularly meets and departs from the Farmhouse Bus Stop Area. Students should never be dropped off and left alone at the bus stop, in a classroom area or at the Upper Campus.
During heavy rains, our PreK-2nd grades students will go directly to their classrooms and grades 3-5 will board a bus to take them to the Courtside Campus.
Mount Madonna School has been a proud member of the Green Schools Program for several years. As a Green/Waste Free School, we are constantly looking for ways to reduce the amount of trash we generate as a school and instead reuse and recycle many of the items we use on campus every day. (Did you know that Santa Cruz County generates more than one million pounds of trash everyday?)
