Parkside Montessori School Site Council (SSC) Reopening Information 

During these challenging times, we hope to help our Parkside students and families stay informed and connected. Check out the information below.

The School Site Council (SSC) is a committee of staff and parents who work together with Mr. Tahai to identify and address the needs of the school community. Parkside Montessori’s School Site Council is currently focused on preparing for a safe return to in-person instruction. If you have general SSC questions, please reach out to Shannon.
