As you likely know, by adding specials to our Primary and Elementary Schools, our school day was lengthened. That change eliminates the need to use a Plan A strategy for school delays. In the event of inclement weather, we will now simply announce a 2 hour delay or cancellation, which will apply to all Monroe schools.
In order to best communicate changes to the school day, the district is utilizing an automatic calling service. This system will only contact each family at the number listed as the student’s primary phone number. Each family can add up to five telephone numbers and four email/text message addresses to the system. If you would like to change or add phone numbers visit our website www.monroelocalschools.com and select “Automatic Calling System - Update Contact Information” on the home page for step-by-step instructions. Please note that if you updated the system last year, you will need to log in using the password that you created at that time.
Please recognize that delaying or cancelling school is not an exact science. We rely on the advice of weather professionals and check road conditions ourselves as early as 2:00 AM. Our goal is to make our decision by 5:00 AM.
Let’s hope and pray that we have a quiet winter season. If you have any questions, please contact the building secretary at your child’s school.
