Prom Car Accident Update

Update 4/30/2018:  At this time 3 students have been released from the hospital and one student remains in UC Hospital

Monroe Families,

At this time I would like to update you on the status of the four Monroe High School students who were injured in a car accident on their way to prom Friday night.  All four students were transported to local hospitals following the accident. At this time, 1 student has been released and 3 remain in UC Hospital.

Community members and students have asked how they can help the families at their time of need.  We have reached out to them, and one family has asked at this time to refrain from visiting their child at the hospital.  While they appreciate that show of support, they need to focus on their child and immediate family members. In lieu of visiting, they did ask that if people would like to donate gift cards to purchase food for the families, that would be appreciated.  You can deliver the gift cards to the high school office between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm. We will make sure they are distributed to the family members.

A support team assembled by our counselors and administrators will be available for students to provide support on Monday and throughout the week if needed.  Parents who feel their child may need extra support can contact the office by calling 513-539-8471 after 7:00 am Monday morning.

Please join our school community in continuing prayers and hope for a full recovery for each student impacted by this accident.
