April 7, 2021

Dear Monroe-Woodbury families and staff,

I am writing with some important reminders and the latest update regarding confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Monroe-Woodbury Central School District. 

Autism Awareness Day, Friday, April 9

April is Autism Awareness Month. Monroe-Woodbury Central School District will light the district blue on Friday, April 9, to help raise awareness, support, acceptance and inclusion. Join us and wear any shirt that empowers autistic voices.

The MWMS Safe School Ambassadors created an impactful video explaining how we can help individuals with autism feel included and accepted. Please take a few minutes to view this powerful message: April is Autism Awareness Month video message.

Website Redesign

We are in the early stages of planning for a redesign of the district website and would appreciate your feedback. Please take a few moments to share your thoughts about the existing site and let us know what elements you would like to see as part of the redesign by completing the Website Redesign Questionnaire. Your feedback is invaluable. Thank you!

Health & Safety Protocol Reminder

Please have your child stay home and participate in remote learning if family members are awaiting COVID-19 test results or are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms. This precautionary quarantine helps keep our students and staff safe, limits close contact quarantines, and allows the school district to continue plans for expanding in-person instruction.

We are grateful for your continued partnership in our efforts to fully reopen schools. 

Warm regards,

Elsie Rodriguez
Superintendent of Schools
