Monroe Eagles and Families,
As September grows nearer, our 2021/2022 school year is just around the corner. We expect to open the school year on Wednesday, September 8th for our first through fifth graders, with kindergarten students beginning on Monday, September 13th. We are returning to our fulltime, in-person schedule with school beginning each day at 8:35 a.m. and concluding at 2:50 p.m. Learning Improvement Fridays are likely to return as part of our weekly schedule. As part of this Friday-only schedule, school will dismiss at 1:35 p.m. (Fridays only).
As we continue to prepare for the coming year, we look forward to providing a safe, healthy school environment that is specifically designed to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our learners. The COVID pandemic continues to challenge us and as a result, we will seek to remain consistent follow local, state, and national guidance. Our Everett Public Schools have produced an extensive list of frequently asked questions pertaining to COVID protocols - Family FAQ for 2021-22. This webpage will be continually updated as new guidance is provided.
Please mark your calendars for the afternoon/evening of Tuesday, September 2nd as we look forward to hosting the return of our annual Meet Your Teacher event. This casual, drop-in event will allow students and families to meet their teacher and visit their classroom. In addition, you will be able to tour the school and become reacquainted with our beautiful Monroe campus. Specific times and other important information is forthcoming but please circle the afternoon/evening of 9/12 on your family calendar for our Monroe 2021 Meet You Teacher event!
As noted by our Everett Superintendent, Dr. Ian Saltzman, in his recent welcome back message (link), our official 2021/2022 school calendar is forthcoming. That noted, historically the first day of school is the Wednesday following the Labor Day holiday. We are planning for that to be the case this year and, as noted above, look forward to welcoming our first through fifth grade Eagles on Wednesday, September 8th followed by our kindergarten Eagles beginning on Monday, September 13th.
Please continue to check our website and school Twitter page (link) for updates. Additionally, our Monroe office is open daily, from 8:00am to 4:00pm.
Enjoy, take care, and stay safe/well – Welcome Back Eagles!
Principal, Monroe Elementary
