Knight - Line News

Isaac Monfort Elementary School V1#31

From the Principal's Desk

Hello Monfort families,


Congratulations to our Talent Show Performers! It as a great show! It takes time, energy, and courage to perform in front of an audience, and the hard work paid off!

Thank you to Mr. Gress for putting the show together! We also had parent volunteers that pitched in, it wouldn't have been as special without your help!

It was especially nice for the talent show to be done during the school day. Our Monfort Knight audience members seemed to really enjoy themselves and appreciate being able to be at an assembly!

Looking ahead to the future, it's so exciting to think about getting back to things like Music Concerts and assemblies!


Please see the notes below about Field Day, which is this week.


Wishing you a peaceful Memorial Day....


With gratitude,

Mary Beth Rizzo


Go Knights!

Monfort Parking Lot Procedures

Safety is number one!

Proper flow in the parking lot helps with the safety and efficiency of drop off and pick up. Please review the map and follow the guidlines below for student drop off and pick up proecdures.



  • The parking lot has a ONE WAY traffic flow.
  • If you plan on parking and walking your child to their classroom door, you must park in a marked parking spot in the lot. There is no parking in the Bus or Student Drop Off lanes.
  • No vehicles are allowed to drive or park in the back of the building for drop off or pick up.
  • When dropping off in the drop off lane, please pull forward in the drop off lane as much as possible.
  • When dropping off in the drop off lane, be sure all students exit vehicles out of the passenger side.
  • Right turn only when exiting the parking lot from 8:45-9:15am.
  • Patience is preferred.

MEDICATION AT SCHOOL

Any child who needs to have medication administered at school will need to have completed medial forms on file for each medication. This includes over-the-counter medications, such as Tylenol/Advil, cough drops, allergy medication, and others.



Children may not bring any medication to school, including allergy medication, without signed medical forms on file. Please do not send medication to school in your child's backpack, such as inhalers, EpiPen, or over-the-counter medications as they will be asked to keep the medication in the office for parents to pick up. If your child needs to have medication in their backpack per Doctor recommendation, UCS requires the completed medical form to be on file with the office.

Monfort classrooms are peanut and treenut free.....

Since our classrooms are peanut and treenut free, I thought I'd include this resource for peanut and treenut free snacks that are eaten in the classroom.

Thank you for helping keep our classrooms safe for all!!
