    Inclement Weather Reminder

    Austin Montessori School follows the AISD cancellation/delay/early release plan for inclement weather, so if AISD cancels or delays, we will too. In the event of inclement weather, we will communicate through email, a bulletin board post in myAMS, and our website (under "School News").  If there is no communication, we will proceed according to our regular schedule.
