Week Ending 3/17/23
From the Principal
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
Hope everyone enjoyed the extra time with the winter weather this week and had a chance to build a snowman, get on the slopes, do some sledding or make a snow angel - in addition to all of the shovelling and cleaning up. Thanks to our custodial and maintenance team for all of their work to clean up our lots and walkways when we are home during these big storms!!
We've got a bunch happening over the next several weeks. Next week is tech week for the Spring Musical with performances coming the week of March 27th. Buy your tickets now!
Don't forgot to sign up for Spring Project Connection programming. The flyer and registration link is below. Spring sports also begin next week, albeit indoors with all of this snow.
As always, if you need assistance with anything, please contact me via email email@example.com or phone (413-528-3346).

What is changing:
In March 2020, the federal government declared a public health emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, in response federal requirements, MassHealth put protections in place that prevented members’ MassHealth coverage from ending. These protections are ending and MassHealth will soon return to standard annual eligibility renewal processes. In the coming year, all current MassHealth members will need to renew their health coverage to ensure they still qualify for their current benefit.
These renewals will take place over 12 months.
MassHealth members should update their addresses, report household changes, and read all mail from MassHealth:
You can learn more about this effort on our website - MassHealth Eligibility Redeterminations.
What is coming in the future:
Renewals will begin in April, and you will hear more, including dates for webinars and learning events.
A reminder that breakfast and lunch are free for all Massachusetts students for this full year.
In addition, students can bring money to purchase additional lunches OR a la carte items.

Monument Mountain has three handbooks that we would like families to read with their students. Students will be reviewing the procedure guide and student charter in their advisories throughout the school year.
The general school handbook contains all of the laws and policies that govern the school and allow us to hold an orderly school assembly. This is an important school document for you to read and understand.
The procedures guide is a listing of all of the daily procedures that allow us to safely proceed with our school day. This document is new and constantly evolving. As a result, you will see some sections that are incomplete. This is an important document for parents and students to read.
The student charter is written by students and for students. The authors of the charter believe the document to be an articulation of how students want to exist in school and what needs to happen for a safe existence to be possible.
