  • School Bus Safety Week

    It's National School Bus Safety week this week (Oct. 19-23) which means it's a great time to highlight an important aspect of bus safety! School Bus Stop Arm violations remain one of the most frequent bus-related violations in Minnesota, averaging more than 1,000 violations annually across the state. Please use this video from the State Patrol as a refresher about School Bus Stop Arm Safety, and please use the weather this week as a reminder to slow down and give extra space to buses on all area roadways. Thank you!

  • District adds four Distance Learning Days
    At the Sept. 14 meeting, the Monticello School Board approved the addition of four District-Wide Distance Learning Days this school year. These days will be held on:

    Wednesday, Oct. 14

    Friday, Nov. 6

    Thursday, April 1

    Thursday, June 3 (Last Day of School)

    These days were formerly early release days across the district. Under our hybrid schedule, early release days are inequitable and a logistical challenge. Changing these days to distance learning days will better serve our entire student body and our staff. To view the most updated district calendar, please visit here.
