Thank you for your patience this week regarding the snow. We follow the Monroe School District weather schedule because they have the resources and the expertise of the district roads to make their best decision. The 2-hour late starts and school closures are easy to follow. Today it was more difficult because MCS does not have an early release schedule. We will continue to follow the district's decisions as closely as possible, but any variations will be sent to you via the text system.
Who knows what next week will bring? Currently, there are a lot of snowflakes lined up on the weather app. Know that the safety of your children is paramount to our school. Our families come from Monroe, Snohomish, Duvall, Lake Stevens, and beyond. If you do not feel comfortable driving in the snow, please stay home. If we are in school and it begins to snow and you want to pick up your kiddos, please do! Everyone's drive in is different.
Do not worry about making up school days yet. We have built extra days into our school schedule for just this purpose. We will keep you posted if we need to add days to our calendar.
Snow days can be stressful for parents, students, and teachers. If snow is sticking around, we will do our best to keep you informed. If we have school but you don't think you can make it due to the conditions at your home, call the office. Be safe and warm. Soak in the quiet beauty of the snow as it falls. Listen to the laughter of your children as they play. Several teachers are sending home school work (i.e., book reports, math practice sheets, spelling work) that your students can work on in case we miss more days.
