Inclement Weather Policy

Garden Montessori School follows the snow announcements of Knox County Schools. When they are closed for a snow day, we are closed. When it is announced that Knox County will open one hour late, Garden Montessori will open at 8:30 instead of 7:30. Please call ahead to make sure the school is open before driving in questionable weather.

All local radio and television stations will carry Knox County Schools’ closing announcements. Please listen for these before driving to school on a snowy day. Occasionally, the school system will close due to other inclement weather, such as extreme cold or flooding.

Garden Montessori has chosen to follow Knox County’s snow day schedule due to the convenience of early announcement times. Please be aware that Elementary and Middle School classrooms may be subject to make-up days if the allotted classroom time falls below acceptable levels.

If it is announced that Knox County Schools will close early because of inclement weather, we will send emails and texts giving you notice of our closing schedule.
