Web Hugs News for ALL Locations

Web Hugs News!

We are very pleased to announce that Web Hugs is about to get much easier for everyone to access!  We know how valuable Web Hugs is to our families so we have done our homework.  We are in the process of changing all of the cameras in all three schools to give you better access, no matter where you are! 

 

Can I use my phone now?

 Yes!!  The most exciting part about this is that the new cameras will now work on iPhones, iPads, Android devices and much more.  This will benefit so many families that are on the go and want to be able to “check in” while away from home.  These cameras will now work with Google Chrome, Apple Safari or Mozilla Firefox.  It is important to know that as of right now, these new cameras do not work with Internet Explorer.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but you can download Google Chrome, Apple Safari, or Mozilla Firefox for free. 

Which devices and platforms have been tested?

 The following platforms have been tested and work with the new cameras:

*        Google Chrome on Windows, Mac, and Android operating systems.

*        Apple Safari on Windows, Mac, and iOS (iPhone, iPad, & iPod) operating systems. (Please note, the new cameras do not work on iOS if you use the Google Chrome browser APP.)

*        Mozilla Firefox on Windows and Mac operating systems.

Please note that we have yet to test the new cameras on Blackberry OS and Windows Mobile OS.  It is likely that the cameras will work on both these platforms though.  Let us know if you have tested this and then we can inform other families.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

Farmington Hills-SMA Mid Winter Break

This year, the winter weather has been exceptionally cold and the record low temperatures have forced many schools to close down for more days than any other time in recent history.  As a result, this has been very disruptive to the families of our schools.

Since Schoolhouse began, we have followed the public school district when it has come to school closings and delayed starting times for a variety of reasons.  This year we did not want to cause further disruption and confusion by not following the local district closures. However, this year has brought to light that this is no longer a good policy for our families.  Therefore beginning the 2014-15 school year, Schoolhouse will no longer follow the local district closures but instead make closure and/or delayed start decisions on a case by case basis as we determine it will best meets the needs and safety concerns of our families and staff.  Therefore it will be important to note, your local Schoolhouse Montessori Academy will only be closed if it is listed on the news stations (e.g. www.clickondetroit.com/weather/closings) and to disregard any local district closures. 

Further, to help alleviate the burden these closures have caused, Schoolhouse has decided to cancel the local mid-winter breaks for each school – please refer to your Schoolhouse Montessori location’s calendar for these dates.  Schoolhouse typically offers child care during this break at an additional cost, however this year we will not be charging families and will treat these days as normal school days to help make up for the days closed due to weather and to ensure students receive any missed curriculum for the closures. Any families who have already signed up and paid for mid-winter care will be refunded or have the payment credited to their remaining balance if they wish. If you have already planned vacation for these dates, please do not change or cancel your plans. 

We sincerely hope that this will help our families this year and in the future if there are more winters ahead like this one. 

Sincerely,
Schoolhouse Learning Communities
