Dear Hornet Families,
We hope that your families are having a great summer break. The purpose of this communication is to provide details on our in-building procedures for the 2022-2023 school year. This includes our plans for locker usage and backpack specifications.
Lockers / Clear-backpacks:
At Monroe High School, each student is assigned a locker for the school year. The lockers have “built in combination locks”. Thus, students do NOT need to bring their own lock for their lockers.
Per our student code of conduct, students are permitted to carry their items to class in a clear backpack or by hand. Please know that the school district will not be providing the clear backpacks. If a student would like to utilize a clear backpack throughout the school day, our hornet families will need to purchase one on their own. Similar to last school year, our students will be permitted to carry their items in their clear backpacks from class to class if they choose to do so. We believe the value of student choice and convenience will allow our students to be successfully prepared for each of their classes throughout the school year.
Students may still carry a non-clear backpack to campus to transport materials for school. However, the non-clear backpacks must be stored in student lockers throughout the school day in order to promote the safest school environment for all involved.
We are confident that our in-building procedures for the 2022-2023 school year will provide the optimal learning environment for all students in Hornet Country. If you have any questions or concerns on this, please send an email to me at (tprohaska@monroelocalschools.
We hope you have a terrific summer and are looking forward to welcoming our students back to the building on August 17th, 2022!
