With winter weather coming right around the
corner, we thought it would be a good time to remind everyone how
Monticello Central School District communicates weather-related
announcements, be it closings, delays or early dismissals.
Parents and Guardians: Information about closing and delays will be made public as soon as a decision has been made via the district's School Messenger System. This system will contact designees via telephone, email and text.
Cancellations, delays or early dismissals are posted on the school
and on the district
School closings are also announced on the following local TV and radio stations: RNN, Fox 5, YNN, WALL (1340AM), WDNH (95.3FM), WELV (107.9FM), WGNY (96.7FM), WHUD (100.7FM), WJFF (90.5FM), WPDH (101.5FM), WSUL (98.3FM), WVOS (95.9FM) and Thunder 102 (102FM).
It is best to rely on more than one source of information when it comes to weather-related announcements. This is particularly true in situations that involve power outages, which can affect the district’s ability to send electronic notifications. Emergency preparedness agencies have advised that residents have access to a battery-powered radio so that they can receive information if other communication channels are unavailable.
Thank you, and please stay safe this winter!

Click here to view a letter to parents [PDF] from Commissioner of Education John B. King, Jr., that more fully explains the outcome of the grades 3-8 state assessments in English language arts and math, and what the results mean for students, parents and educators.
Last spring, the New York State Education Department predicted a decrease in scores for its assessments in English language arts and math for grades 3-8 in 2012-13. This decrease was anticipated with the launch of new, more rigorous assessments based on the Common Core Learning Standards. In Monticello schools, administrators are ready to help parents address any concerns about their children's results. More
