Monroe High School Update – February 5, 2021

February 5, 2021

Dear Parents and Students,

The first few days of reopening went really well. Students and staff are doing a tremendous job of following protocol and getting back in the swing of in-person learning. A few reminders as we invite juniors and seniors back on Monday, the 8th.


Breakfast is served in the HS commons every morning from 8:30-8:50am. We ask that no opened food items leave the eating areas.

Breakfast and lunch is free for any student that signs up. Please check the monthly menu on the school district website for more detailed information. Students sign up for lunch and the next day’s breakfast, when screened upon arrival. We have two main eating areas. Under guidance, we must maintain safety protocol during meal time and keep lunch cohorts organized. Juniors and seniors will eat in the main high gymnasium. Outdoor eating will be available as weather allows and will be organized amongst cohorts.


Students have scheduled advisories, which is their homeroom. It is a time to prepare for the day, meet with your class advisor, and end the day with final tasks.

Physical Education and Athletics

The general forecast and trend for PE and sports is looking better every week. Working with the OHA and the OSAA, we are opening our offerings for strength and conditioning, as well as PE. Please reach out to Mr. Fielder for more information.

Canned Food Drive

The National Honor Society is holding their annual food drive from February 8th -12th. Participants who donate multiple canned or non-perishable food will be entered into a drawing. Please help support those in need and have a chance to win $50.


Students who drive need to use the North parking lot entrance, near the baseball field. Please keep the bus and passenger car loop open for those being dropped off. Please pull completely through the loop and drop students off at the HS Commons doors to allow traffic to run smoothly.

School Entry and Screening Protocol

Construction continues on the HS building. The front entrance way is undergoing some stairway updates. Please use the West entrance to the main HS building until further notice. After screening, students may enter the building and report directly to their homeroom or designated area. HS staff will be available to help students with any questions they may have.


In-person students do not need to bring many supplies. Recommended items for each day of classes are:

  • Three ringed binder. Dividers and folders for organization.
  • Lined paper, but can be issued by teachers. Many classes will be paperless.
  • Writing utensils. Multiple per student.
  • School issued chromebook/laptop or personal electronic device and a charger. This technology will be used throughout the day. If a student brings their own device, they will need to register this item with the HS office.
