Impact of Absences on Learning

We understand that from time to time, emergencies and illnesses occur. For these reasons, students must be absent. Perhaps there are other types of absences that could be avoided entirely. In December, the CA Dept of Education released our schools report card, and when our students did exceeding well in both language arts and mathematics. Monroe received the second to the lowest score on attendance, a score that is much lower than the state average. Absences impact learning and funding. Unless it's for an emergency or for illness, we ask that you bring your child to school each day.

Entendemos que de vez en cuando ocurren emergencias y enfermedades, y por estas razones los estudiantes deben estar ausentes, tal vez hay otros tipos de ausencias que podrían evitarse por completo. En diciembre, el Departamento de Educación de California publicó el boletín de calificaciones de nuestras escuelas, y nuestros estudiantes sobresalieron en los resultados académicos en artes del lenguaje y en matemáticas, Desafortunadamente, Monroe recibió el segundo puntaje más bajo en asistencia a la escuela, y este promedio es sumamente mucho más bajo que el promedio estatal. Las ausencias impactan el aprendizaje y el presupuesto de la escuela. A menos que sea por una emergencia o por enfermedad, le pedimos que traiga a su hijo a la escuela todos los días.

Use of Technology Off Campus

Dear Mighty Monroe Families,

Although the invention of technology has spurred ingenuity, led to global communication, and changed the way that people interact with the world, it has also created some challenges and risks for children who use these communication devices. Over the past 3 years, I’ve seen an increase in the use of technology and exposure to inappropriate content during non-school hours. Many times, these online exchanges lead to disruptions of school activities, student conflict, and emotional distress.

If your child has a device--phone, tablet, laptop, video game console (PS4), X-Box, or any other communication device connected to the world-wide-web, I urge you to limit their screen time and to regularly monitor their content and the nature of their usage. Below is a helpful resource for parents.

Dr. Jarvis, Principal
