Monroe County and Sweetwater City Schools will be assisting with hurricane relief efforts along with many other districts across the state.

Our schools will be offering drop off boxes beginning next Tuesday, September 5 and will collect new backpacks and #2 pencils. Items are due back the following Tuesday, September 13. Please keep items in original packaging.

We appreciate your support of the coordinated effort put together by state superintendents.


On behalf of Monroe County Schools Office of CSH, I am informing/welcoming parents attendance at our next “School Health Advisory Council” meeting taking place, May 16 (Bert’s at 11:30). We will be giving FRC/CSH updates! We will also be reviewing our local school wellness policy and implementation under the healthy, hunger-free kids act of 2010: summary of the final rule. We look forward to seeing all in attendance.
