Dear MCS Families,
As the snow begins to fall, I would like to share with you the process used for school cancellation. Throughout the week, I am tuned into a number of weather reports. Understanding that these reports are projections, I anticipate the actual weather condition will occur on the day it is predicted. Because of this, school will not be cancelled the day before a storm is predicted.
The day of the storm, Jim from JPI, our transportation provider, and I will be in contact no later than 5:00 AM. He will update me as to the road conditions as well as any recent weather forecasts that he might have. From this discussion, we will make a decision whether to have school, cancel school, or have a delay.
If the decision is to cancel school or have a delay, I will make a number of calls to get the word to you. Sandy Lang will notify you via the school’s Blackboard program. Additionally, WMUR, WPTZ and WCAX will be notified and have the information posted. Status is also posted on the school’s website and the school’s facebook page.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
At the Monday August 13, 2018, school board meeting, the administration outlined measures to ensure the safety of all children. An additional part time support staff member will be assigned to assist in providing supplemental oversight of all children in the hallways, dining room, playground and other non-classroom areas. Structures will be in place to monitor the use of the restrooms to ensure that the students feel safe in these areas. As needed, additional support staff will be reassigned to non-classroom areas to provide the supervision needed for total school security for all. Bus support will be assigned as needed.
It is the primary focus of the administration and the school board that student safety is a priority. Without the students feeling safe, they can not properly focus on the learning process. The school is looking for a cooperative effort in ensuring the safety of all.
Chain of Command
The Monroe School Board would like to remind all of the chain of command policy. Matters of concern by parents and community members should begin at the level where the concern originated. For example, it there is a concern about what took place in the classroom, the teacher should be the first person contacted. If the matter remains unresolved, the principal is the next person with whom to discuss the matter. The superintendent of schools should be the next person to contact if there remains concerns. The final in district step is to ask for a meeting with the Monroe School Board. If the matter is still unresolved, the New Hampshire Department of Education should be contacted.
