Donations to the Dog Pound

Our Cub House students did an upcycling unit to make new items with donated clothing. Students made dog toys to donate to the dog pound for Christmas. Students did a fantastic job with the leftover fabric.

Inclement Weather

If the National Weather Service predicts a winter storm, our administration will monitor the forecast closely. The decision to cancel school during inclement weather is not taken lightly. Many factors go into making a snow day decision. Student and faculty safety is the primary concern in making the call for cancellation. The decision involves considering multiple issues, but it all comes down to a subjective informed judgment call in the final analysis. When a decision is made, communication about cancellation is made by calling, emailing, and texting parents. This information is also shared on our website, social media, KY3, and KSN16.

If school is canceled or we opt for early dismissal, notifications will be sent out via the following methods:

  • Calling system
  • Email
  • Text message
  • Facebook, Instagram, Twitter post (will be posted as soon as the decision is made)
  • All local media outlets are notified as soon as the decision is made

We highly encourage Monett families to ensure all contact information is always up to date in PowerSchool. If you need to change a phone number, log into your PowerSchool account to make the changes. We apologize if you receive more than one notification; we strive to ensure all patrons receive the notice.
