Welcome to Montvale Elementary School!
Meal Charge Cut-Off Date
Towards the end of each school year the School Nutrition Program establishes a cut-off date for meal charges in the school cafeteria. This cut-off date is established to give the program sufficient time to collect outstanding charges and clear up accounts before the end of the school year.
This year, the last day that students will be allowed to charge school meals is:
Friday, May 12, 2017
Beginning on Monday, May 15th, students must either have money with them when they come through the serving line or have sufficient funds on their student meal account to cover what is purchased. If a student comes to the cafeteria to eat breakfast or lunch and does not have the funds to cover the purchase, cafeteria staff will give the student an alternate meal of toast & milk for breakfast or a sandwich & milk for lunch until funds are received.
Parents are always welcome to call the cafeteria manager to check their child’s account balance. The Montvale Elementary Cafeteria can be reached at 540-947-2516. Parents may also call the BCPS School Nutrition Office at 540-586-1045, ext. 224.
Montvale Elementary School, along with the community, will provide a safe learning environment that will nurture each student’s emotional, social, physical, and academic potential.
Montvale Elementary students will be prepared for success in the twenty-first century by integrating technology, hands-on learning, and active involvement in the learning process. Highly-qualified staff will design and implement the educational process addressing individual differences and focusing on the belief that all students are capable learners. Parent and community participation will have an important role in this process. All students will be educated in a safe and secure environment that promotes responsibility, manners, self-esteem, and communication.
School Alerts and Notifications
The best way to receive alerts, including weather closings and delays, from Bedford County Public Schools is by downloading the free Bedford County Public Schools App for iPhone/Android from the app store. This will push notifications to your phone as they are released!
The next place the district will post alerts, closings, or delays is on Facebook. On Facebook, “Like” the BCPS page to stay informed:
Other, less timely, methods about BCPS alerts are local television or radio.
Schools are not contacted directly about closings/delays. Our staff must monitor the above listed sources of information to learn about school closings and take action for each situation. Calling the school is not the quickest way to receive the latest information.
