Monroe County Community Schools Closed Until March 27

(MONROE CO.) – All Monroe Community Schools and Early Learning Centers will be closed Friday, March 13.

The School Corporation released the following statement:

Thank you for your support as we work through these unprecedented times. The safety and security of our students and staff are of critical importance to all of us.

This evening March 12, we were notified that families have been exposed to others displaying symptoms of the COVID-19/Coronavirus.

We believe the safest course of action is to close all MCCSC schools and Early Learning Centers beginning Friday, March 13 through Friday, March 27. This will minimize exposure and allow time to have buildings and buses deep cleaned.

In addition to school, all practices and extra-curricular activities, with the exception of IHSAA state contests, are canceled beginning Friday, March 13 through Friday, March 27. The need to add additional days/weeks of closure may be forthcoming as we continue to work with the Monroe County Health Department and Indiana Department of Education.

We will be making an application for a waiver of instructional time for Friday, March 13.

Contingency Learning Plans will be used beginning Monday, March 23 through Friday, March 27. All information will be available at the MCCSC website and on the doors of each school beginning Saturday, March 14, 2020.

Information will be organized regarding Contingency Learning Plans, breakfast and lunch availability, technology support, Special Education Services, and self-care information.

  • Breakfast and lunch will be available for pick-up at all schools Friday, March 13 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Breakfast and lunch pick-up for March 23 – 27 will be available Monday, Wednesday and Friday 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in each building.

If you need your child’s medication prior to Spring Break, please feel free to go to your school from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Friday, March 13, to pick it up.

We recognize there may be additional questions and we will provide updated information on our website and on the doors of each school beginning Saturday, March 14.

Again, we thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these difficult times.
