2015 Community Survey

  • MHS Ball Field Ground Breaking

    Turning over shovels of soil on July 14, (left to right) Monroe City Councilman Jason Gamble, Mayor Geoffrey Thomas, Councilman Kevin Hanford, Monroe Public School’s Board President Katy Woods, School Board Directors Darcy Cheesman and Jason Hutchinson, MHS Baseball Coach Eric Chartrand, Monroe High junior and baseball player Justin Folz, Monroe schools' Superintendent Dr. Fredrika Smith, MHS junior and fastpitch player Megan Rybar, MHS Fastpitch coach Mike Birch, School Board Director Jim Scott, MHS principal John Lombardi and Eric Gold, landscape architect from Seattle’s D.A. Hogan and Associates ceremoniously broke ground for competitive ball fields at Monroe High School. This is the first of the major projects approved in the April 2015 Monroe Public Schools’ bond to begin. Phase 1 is an almost $1 million project to build a competition fastpitch/softball field with all-weather turf and underground drainage. Phase 1 is funded by partners at Snohomish County’s Tourism Promotion Area Board and the City of Monroe along with revenue generated by harvesting timber off of local public school land and school district funds. Completion is expected in October. Phase 2 will build a baseball field and another softball-size field for $3.3 million. Both will be all-weather turf and include drainage. Phase 2 is funded by the April 2015 bond approved by local voters. Efforts are underway fast-track Phase 2 for completion by next spring if weather and bids allow. Catch up on all the bond updates on a new webpage: Your tax Dollars at Work: Bond 2015.

  • FREE all day, every day Kindergarten expanded to all schools - Every elementary school will offer all day, every day Kindergarten free of charge to families starting in September. Register NOW to ensure your child's seat in your neighborhood school. Schools are filling up forcing students that register later to be bused to another elementary school. The Administration Building staff are here to help you until schools re-open August 24.
  • Next school year starts September 10 - School Board members determined the first day of school for the 2015-16 school to be Thursday, September 10, which allows for an "early start" on Wednesday, September 9, for students starting 6th and 9th grades in new schools.
  • Confirm your school emergency notification service - FlashAlert, the service that carries messages about school closure or bus route changes due to weather, has asked its subscribers to confirm their contact information to remain active in the School Report system. It is important to note that confirming/updating contact info in FlashAlert does NOT update school records so if there have been changes please directly contact your child's school office. Schools re-open on Monday, August 24.
  • Class of 2015 earns more than $10 million in scholarships and awards - More than 500 students will graduate this month from Monroe Public Schools four high school programs and many will continue their education with more than $10 million in scholarship offers and awards - the most yet since local schools began collecting this information. Our community is invited to attend the commencement ceremonies slated for the next two weeks to join in celebrating the success of the Class of 2015. Learn more...

Welcome to our Community Notices webpage. This page is designed to help families have the information they need when they need it. I don’t know about you but there have been many times I saved a flyer to refer to later but then never could remember where I put it. Hopefully this new process will help.

Our school newsletters will highlight new postings twice a month. Our goal is to refresh this page at the start of each month and then again in the middle of the month. This is definitely a work in progress so please let us know your suggestions for improvement.
