Inclement Weather Policy
If Olathe School district is closed due to poor road conditions from inclement weather, morning classes will be cancelled. If roads clear, we will hold afternoon and evening classes. If we do cancel afternoon and evening classes, it will be posted on the front page of our website no later than 2:00 PM. And we will send an email. We will also post on Facebook and instagram. If Olathe School district is closed due to cold temperatures, Miss Maria's will still hold classes.
We encourage you to make-up your class due to illness, weather or school conflicts. If you would like to make up your class, please check our website for the appropriate times to attend another class.
