From the Principal

We had a great first full week at Monroe Elementary. This week we had our first fire drill. I explained to all of the students that we practice this in case there was a real emergency. Everyone did a great job with this and we were all out of the building quickly. One important reminder, wearing masks on the bus is mandatory. Please make sure that your child has a mask that they can keep in their backpack when they aren't using it to put on while they are on the bus. If your child is participating in our "Breakfast and Blankets- honoring grandparents/special friends, please have your paper returned on Monday so that we can get a count of the number of people attending. Have a great weekend!
