Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! It is my sincere hope that you and your family are safe and healthy during this time. As many of you are aware, due to Kings County being on the State Monitoring list for COVID-19, all HESD schools will be starting the school year in a distance learning model. Please know that the staff at Monroe are here to support you in any way. We are committed to providing our Mustangs with a high-quality distance learning experience!
Please expect that distance learning will look very different than the distance learning that you experienced last spring. Students will be receiving daily live instruction with their teacher and instructional times will mirror the in-person school day. Students will be required to complete assignments and log-in to receive instruction. In order for all students to successfully access distance learning instruction, all TK-6th grade students will receive a device. (TK-1st grade will receive an iPad, while 2nd – 6th grade will receive laptops) In addition, we will also be sending home other instructional materials such as textbooks and supplies that will be utilized within the instructional day. Please see the attached flyer for our distribution days, which provides you information on when you can come and pick-up your child’s distance learning materials prior to the first day of school. (Students will receive information on who their teacher is when they pick up their instructional supplies. Class lists will NOT be posted)
The Monroe staff is ready to kick off the 2020-2021 school year! We are excited to meet our Mustangs virtually and begin to interact with them via our online platforms! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I believe that when home and school work together, we create a team that provides support for your child’s success! We are Better Together! Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to you through remind, as well as please make sure that you are signed up for our Monroe school remind.
