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.


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.

Monticello Central School District knows how important it is for every child to have access to healthful school meals daily. Beginning Thursday, March 19, food will be delivered to students along our bus routes. Each child will receive a packaged double meal, containing one breakfast and one lunch.  All Monticello residents under the age of 18 are eligible to receive these meals. 

This week’s meal delivery schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, March 31: a double delivery of two breakfasts and two lunches

Wednesday, April 1: no delivery

Thursday, April 2:  a double delivery of two breakfasts and two lunches

Friday, April 3: no delivery

Please use the bus routes linked here,  or see the photos below, to determine the time when your bus will be traveling your road, or near your road. If you are a walker, you may go to the nearest bus stop near you. The lists that are posted are not the stops, only the times of the buses are traveling. They will be stopping at regular bus stops that the children go to every day: In order to receive a meal, you must be outside at your bus stop. If your bus stop is at your home, you must be standing outside. Please be sure you’re visible to our drivers. 
One packaged double meal will be given to each student. To receive a meal, students may simply show up at the time and bus stop listed. You must be outside. Even if the bus stops at your home, you must be outside so the driver can stop. If parents are picking up meals on behalf of their children, and the children are not present, they must show proof of residency for each child, such as a report card or school ID. Please note that milk is an important component of each each school lunch. Milk should be consumed or refrigerated immediately. If you are in need of a meal, and the bus has not come to your bus stop, please contact the transportation department at 845-794-8570 or 845-794-2120
