From the Principal

I hope you are able to start digging out from all of the snow. The Monroe dental visit that was scheduled for today has been rescheduled for Monday. If you have already registered, there is nothing else you need to do.

Third grade parents: coming home soon will be information regarding the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Last week, state test reports were mailed to you. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Have a great weekend!

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Classroom parties will occur on Friday, February 11th. More information will be coming soon from classroom teachers about items that they could use for their parties. Parents will not be able to attend the parties but we will post pictures. Students will be able to decorate a Valentine box at home to bring to school to collect their Valentine cards in. If you have any extra shoe boxes or boxes of a similar size Monroe Elementary would appreciate if you could send them in for students that don't have boxes.

Masks on Jonathan Alder transportation

Masks are still mandatory on Jonathan Alder busses. Please encourage your child to keep their masks to prevent needing a new mask on a daily basis. We are happy to provide masks if needed but we are giving out a lot of masks on a daily basis.

Monroe School Yearbook information

Yearbooks can be ordered online at Monroe Elementary's Yearbook ID Code is 13563222 and the cost is $12. Online ordering is the ONLY way to order yearbooks this year. No orders can be accepted through the school. The deadline to order is March 11, 2022.

Chromebook/i-Pad Student Responsibility

Chromebook/i-Pad Student Responsibility

All Jonathan Alder schools are now equipped with one Chromebook or i-Pad per child. We hope that students handle their devices with great care; however,there are consequences for damage, loss and/or inappropriate use of their computers.

All JA schools will be following this fee schedule for damages on devices:

This fee schedule was approved by the JA Board of Education on 12/13/2021 and is supported by Board Policy that states: “users are personally responsible and liable” for use of district technology and that users are “fully liable for damage or loss” of equipment while being used by the student. (ref: 7540.03 Student Technology Acceptable Use and Safety and 7530 Lending of Board-Owned Equipment)

We encourage you to have conversations with your children regarding the resources provided, and general safety and security on the web. This is a great place to start: Common Sense Media.

Thank you for your assistance as we strive to keep the laptop computers working properly and in the hands of students.
