  • Masks are mandatory - No entrance will be permitted without a mask.

LAST REMINDER

Student Race & Ethnicity Data Collection


There will be a final attempt to gather the information after Thanksgiving. If there is no response, schools are required to make the ethnicity and race selection for the student.


We are required by federal and state law to ask families to verify their child as either Hispanic/Latino or not Hispanic/Latino AND by one or more of 217 racial groups. We ask that families please respond to the two questions in Family Access for each of their students currently enrolled.


Please see OSPI Observer Identification guidelines at https://www.k12.wa.us/sites/default/files/public/cedars/pubdocs/guidelinesobserveridentification-newethnicityracecodes.pdf


More information can be found on our website.

superintendent chat

With a goal of fostering transparent, two-way communication, Superintendent of Monroe School District, Dr. Justin Blasko, extends an open invitation to families for his monthly "Superintendent Chat."

This is an opportunity for families to ask questions, provide input, and share viewpoints on district procedures, practices, and policies. In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, these chats will be held via Zoom.

While families are welcome to ask questions about anything, the topic of this chat will be primarily focused on COVID-19 in our schools. David Paratore, the MSD Chief of Student Services, will be joining as a special guest to discuss this topic.

The meeting will be held in English with live Spanish translations from our Hispanic Liaison, Carlos Elles.

ID IS REQUIRED-EVERYTIME

Any time a student is picked up from school an ID is required.

SPORTS

The sign up deadline for season one Winter sports: Girls Volleyball, Boys Basketball and Boys/Girls Soccer has now ended.


There will be information on signing up for next season Winter 2: Girls Basketball and Wresting soon.

MESSAGES FROM THE DISTRICT

Volunteers As we shared at the beginning of the school year, the decision to not permit volunteers or visitors in schools would be re-evaluated at the end of October. Due to continued high COVID-19 case rates in Snohomish County, Monroe School District has made the decision to continue to not allow volunteers or visitors in schools at this time. We miss our volunteers and will continue to monitor case rates as we re-evaluate this decision in the new year.

Do you know a Monroe School District employee who deserves some much-needed recognition?

Monroe School District has launched a new employee recognition program, called the MSD Employee Honor Roll! This program is aimed at recognizing Monroe School District employees for exemplifying the district’s commitment and shared values through their service to our students, staff, families, and/or community.


Supervisors, fellow employees, parents and community members are encouraged to nominate ANY staff member for exemplifying any of the following:

  • Providing engaging learning opportunities through powerful instruction

  • Providing students with equitable access to learning and opportunities based on their unique, individual needs

  • Holding students to high standards

  • Using innovation to provide educational choice

  • Recognizing, honoring and building upon students’ strengths and passions

  • Engaging families and the community in the learning process

  • Preparing all students for college, careers and life beyond graduation


All nominees will be recognized, but only one in each employee category will be selected each month as the MSD Employee Honor Roll award recipients. Employee categories include:

  • Certificated (teachers, counselors, psychologists, etc)

  • Classified (paraeducators, nurses, office staff, bus drivers, food service, custodial, technology, maintenance, etc)

  • Substitutes and coaches

  • Administrators (Principals, assistant principals, directors, executive staff)
