Dear Monroe-Woodbury families,

Beginning Monday, October 26, the school district will introduce a revised instructional format for remote Mondays. Though this new format will alter slightly depending on your child’s grade level, the underlying goal is to allow all students additional opportunities to get individualized support. Remote Mondays will continue in this format until further notice.

All teachers will dedicate approximately two hours each Monday to provide additional support for students. The remainder of the day will give our students time to catch up on work and our teachers additional planning time to adjust their curriculum.

Attached for your reference is a general outline of the revised Monday schedule for all grade levels. Building administrators will share specific information related to your child tomorrow, Friday, October 23.

If you have any questions, please contact your building principal. Thank you for your cooperation and partnership as we continue to refine our instructional schedule.

Warm regards,

Elsie Rodriguez
Superintendent of Schools
