School Closure (September 1st & 2nd)

Monroe County Schools will be closed for students and staff Wednesday (September 1st) and Thursday (September 2nd), and for students on Friday (September 3rd). Click the link for more details.

"Monroe County School System will be closed on Wednesday (September 1st) and Thursday (September 2nd) and all extracurricular activities, including sports, will be cancelled Wednesday (September 1st) through Friday (September 3rd). 

Students will not come to school on Friday (September 3rd), and teachers will participate remotely in staff development on that day.  Alternate plans for teachers without internet access at home will be provided, and more details will follow.   

Please be mindful of the reasons behind this closure, as we are allowing sick or quarantined students and staff an opportunity to recover.  We would like to encourage all employees, staff, and students to please limit attendance to any large events or activities in order for the closure to maximize our goal of curbing the chances of exposure and to aid in flattening the curve.   

We will return to school after Labor Day on Tuesday (September 7th), and we hope to see a healthy return of our students and staff."
