MVLA Elementary (K-5)

Jennifer MurphyHello, my name is Jennifer Murphy and I oversee and support kindergarten through 5th grade students and teachers at the Monroe Virtual Learning Academy (MVLA). Prior to this academic year, I have worked as an Assistant Principal at Maltby Elementary and I have taught kindergarten, first and sixth grades in the Northshore School District. 

As a fellow parent, I know first hand the difficult decision you have in front of you in choosing a learning option for your child this year. I want you to know that I am committed to partnering with you to support your child in reaching their academic goals. I know that COVID-19 has prompted many changes in our academic structures, but I am confident that we can make this year a positive experience for your child.

Please know that we will be partnering with you to fill out any and all required enrollment paperwork. I will be available to support you from my office (360) 804-3503, Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm. If you need support outside this window, please do not hesitate to contact our district office at (360) 804-2500 for help. I also want to assure you that at the end of the semester or academic year, we will again support you with the process of enrolling your child back into their home school.

I look forward to partnering with you this year in the continued academic growth of your child. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns regarding the Monroe Virtual Learning Academy.
