In order to limit the spread of COVID-19 (2019 novel coronavirus) and to comply with public health guidelines to maintain social distancing, Monticello Central School District’s Central Administration and Business Offices will be scheduling appointments in order to limit visitors. Please call 845-794-7700 to schedule an appointment if you should need our services.
By Executive Order, the public school districts of Sullivan County, in collaboration with the Sullivan County Child Care Council, have developed emergency child care plans for essential workers. Essential workers include first responders, healthcare workers, food manufacturers, supermarket workers, food preparation workers, commercial truck drivers, transit workers, carriers of critical and essential materials, construction workers, manufacturing workers, specialized equipment workers related to health or safety of the public and nonprofit and social service agencies providing support to families, and employees in related fields.
The plan is meant to serve those essential workers for whom child care has become a burden during the response to COVID-19. If you meet the definition of an essential employee and have child care needs, access to free childcare via the CARES Child Care Scholarship from the Office of Children and Family Services is available to those who qualify.
Essential workers that currently have their children in licensed/registered child care or need child care may apply by clicking this link: https://forms.gle/MJ95dpSdP6ehMfFF9
You will be contacted by the Sullivan County Child Care Council, Inc., within one business day. They will follow up on the next steps to gather information about your household and help you identify a participating child care provider or work with your current registered or licensed child care provider.
Your children can use ClassLink to access the apps that they use in school. If you are unfamiliar with logging into ClassLink, please watch the video below:
Cómo acceder a ClassLink en en español
Ya sea que esté utilizando un dispositivo móvil, una tableta o una computadora, para acceder a ClassLink, todo lo que tiene que hacer es navegar al sitio web del Distrito Escolar Central de Monticello. Una vez que esté aquí, desplácese hacia abajo hasta que vea la palabra “conectar”. Luego, si mira debajo de la palabra “conectar”, aparece la palabra ClassLink. Presione Classlink. Cuando llegue a este sitio, hará que el estudiante ponga su nombre y su apellido y luego una contraseña que comience con hashtag hashtag. Esto les permitirá acceder a todas las aplicaciones que tienen en la escuela.

Each student enrolled in the Monticello Central School District will receive $420 in food benefits through the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) program between June and August. P-EBT is a new program to help fill the school meals gap for children who lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to COVID-19 school closures. In schools where all students receive free meals, such as Monticello, all enrolled students will receive this benefit, regardless of income or immigration status. Read more
