we will engage the tools and employ the professionals necessary to meet the needs of ALL our families.
This includes providing base services such as transportation and breakfast and lunch.
These plans will solidify later in the spring after our student population becomes clear.
PCM is committed to providing healthy breakfast and lunch at an affordable price for all its students. As traditional Montessori practices encourage students to participate in preparation of food and snack, PCM will work with our insurance provider and local Health Services to devise a strong program for safe student involvement. PCM will pursue registration in the USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) which provides participating elementary schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day to offset our snack program budget.
PCM students will receive transportation services to and from school in accordance with RCW 28A.160.150 - 28A.160.180, including those to mitigate hazards for walkers (RCW 28A.160.030). With our rural location, PCM is sensitive to transportation needs and will work with families to address them to ensure transportation is not a barrier to attendance.
