District offices and schools closed Friday, October 4

on October 2, 2019

A message to M-W families from Superintendent of Schools Elsie Rodriguez*

After a series of conversations with NYC Police Department representatives, local law enforcement and elected officials, the school district will be closing all district buildings and schools on Friday, October 4, while funeral services for NYC Police Officer and Monroe-Woodbury alumnus Brian Mulkeen are held in Monroe. There will be no school for students on Friday, October 4.

More than 25,000 people are expected to attend the services, which will result in extensive road closures that will begin as early as 7 a.m. These closures are expected to impact travel for students and staff until late in the day. To ensure safe travel for all of our Monroe-Woodbury families and staff, we feel it is prudent to close all buildings. The Village of Monroe Police Department will be sharing traffic updates via their Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/MPDNY

There will be no transportation for out of district students on October 4.

The professional development day scheduled for Friday, February 14, 2020 will now be a full day of school for staff and students.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Brian’s family and friends during this difficult time. We, as a school community, mourn the loss of this remarkable young man. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this unprecedented event.
