Rogers Park Montessori Commitment to Community


"The child is capable of developing and giving us tangible proof of the possibility of a better humanity.

- Maria Montessori


As our community navigates the challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the health, safety, and best interests of our students, faculty, staff, and families will lead our decision-making. More than 50 years of unfailing respect for children’s development and the expertise of our highly trained educators will enable us to make mission-appropriate programming accommodations during this time. Our financial choices will reflect our prioritization of the health, safety, and best interests of our community while promoting the long-term sustainability of the school. Together, these guiding principles will allow us to continue fulfilling our mission.


The RPMS Community is committed to:

1) Each Other’s Safety by: 

a) keeping our children home when they are unwell.

b) employing risk mitigation strategies like wearing masks,

c) employing hand hygiene, and practicing physical distancing.

c) transparently sharing any known COVID exposures.

d) understanding Illinois and Chicago mandates around quarantine and travel.


2) Flexibility, Adaptability, and Responsive Decision Making by: 

a) supporting our students, faculty and families with frequent communication and opportunities for support.

b) acknowledging that there will likely be interruptions to our In Person programming through the fall.

c) preparing for unexpected impacts of COVID-19 to our programs.

d) listening to public health and our community.

3)Living its Foundational Values by: 

a) reflecting often on our We Believe statements.

b) imbuing our curriculum with our Values.

c) living our Mission.
