Transportation Opt-In Requirement

Families planning to utilize bus service for the 2024-25 school year must complete a mandatory transportation opt-in form within FinalForms for each student no later than June 30, 2024. After this deadline, the transportation department will begin routing only students with completed forms. If the opt-in period is missed it may affect your child’s bus stop location or cause a delay of up to two weeks to receive transportation once school starts.

Beginning next school year, Petermann’s Bus Tracker app will be phased out and replaced by two separate mobile applications. Please stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

For more information on Monroe’s transportation policies or to complete an opt-in form for your student/s, please visit

Enrollment and Annual Forms (FinalForms)

Supply Lists

Supply lists for grades preschool through eight are available now at For grades nine through 12, there are no building-level supply requirements, but individual teachers may request specific supplies as the school year begins. For students at Monroe High School, regular backpacks are now permitted to be carried between classes.


Students are allowed 10 excused absences (including vacation days) via call-in, note or email each school year. For an absence to be excused, it should meet the criteria found in board policy 5200. After the 10th parent note/call-in for an excused absence, the student must then submit medical documentation for any further absences from the medical provider.

High School Announcements


The district has made the decision to only assign lockers to freshmen in an effort to address overcrowding and ease hallway transitions between classes. Sophomores, juniors and seniors will still have the option to be assigned a locker, however this will be by request only.

As in years past, students are only permitted to access their lockers during specific times each school day. 

  • Before and after school (prior to 7:40 a.m. and 2:50 - 3:00 p.m.)
  • Transitioning to/during fifth bell - (lunch period: 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.)

As the school year approaches, Mr. Prohaska will be in touch with more information regarding locker signups for sophomores, juniors and seniors.


Per the student code of conduct, students are permitted to carry their items to class in a backpack. For the 2024-25 school year, students are no longer restricted to the use of clear backpacks between classes. Students may now carry a normal, non-clear backpack to campus as well as to class to transport their school materials. Backpacks should be stored safely at the discretion of the teacher based on class space needs and are subject to random and/or reasonable suspicion searches.

Homecoming and Junior/Senior Prom

Students must remain in good standing in order to attend Monroe’s homecoming and/or prom. Likewise, students wanting to attend another school’s homecoming or prom must also be in good standing for an administrator to sign their form. A detailed definition of good standing is provided in Monroe Senior High School’s Code of Conduct.

Students may also lose other extracurricular privileges if, in the current academic year, they are in habitual truancy, missed more than 72 hours of school (unexcused), or have been suspended, recommended for expulsion, or expelled such as sporting events (attendance and/or participation), attendance or participation in plays, musicals, marching band/pep band activities and any other extracurricular events or activities.
