Dear Parents and Students,
With only two weeks left until the first day of school, summer is quickly coming to an end. All Monroe High School staff will be back in the building next week and we have a lot of preparation ahead of us. We have many things happening and I wanted to update you on upcoming events and important information.
Fall sports practices have begun. The deadline to join a team is quickly approaching, but it is not too late if you are interested. The high school office can provide information and help get kids signed up.
– VB first competition: Home, August 28th
– FB first competition: Home, August 27th.
* Fall schedules can be viewed at OSAA.org
Registration day has passed, but it can still be done online, through the district website (Monroe.k12.or.us) or in-person. The high school office is open and ready to help answer any questions you may have. Along with registration students have received their lockers and schedules for this coming year. If you have not done so already, please stop by the office or give us a call and we can get this information to you. Also, schedule change requests can be made before school starts to ensure you receive the best classes for you.
Freshmen/New Student Orientation
An important day for students new to MHS is orientation day. September 3rd from 8:00am – 11:00am, students are given the opportunity to meet MHS staff, view their schedules, see where their classes are, and ask questions they may have. We strongly suggest all new students attend this event. Breakfast is provided as well.
We look forward to the first day of school, September 8th. Classes begin at 8:00am and busses will be running their routes for student transportation. Please contact Braidy Crowson, at the Crowson Bus Company, for individual details. 541-243-3239.
COVID Related Information
It is evident the impacts COVID related issues are having on communities around the nation. The school district is mandated by the state to follow certain protocols. Please be aware that masks are to be worn by all individuals indoors and when distancing cannot be maintained outdoors. With varying perspectives on the matter, what is most important is keeping our kids in school and on their respective court or field. We are implementing many strategies to decrease mask wearing such as outdoor eating and class time. We want to progress back to “normal” as quickly as we can and keeping kids and staff COVID free is our top priority. We greatly appreciate your support.
Academic Calendars can be found on the district website.
- Oct. 1st – Picture Day
- Oct. 13th – PSAT/Senior Project Day
We look forward to the start of another school year and please call the high school office with any questions. 541-847-5161
