  • Suspension of District Mask Policy

    The Monroe County School Board voted to suspend their current mask policy and instate optional masking throughout the district for teachers, staff and students. This new policy requires a discussion with the Monroe County Teachers’ Union who negotiate for both teachers and school related personnel. The district will endeavor to meet with them as soon as possible to discuss how to implement the Board’s direction. Although that meeting will provide additional procedural methods of implementation, the Board’s decision takes effect immediately.

  • Florida Department of Health Emergency Rule

    The Monroe County School District is aware of the new Emergency Rule issued by the Florida Department of Health Wednesday afternoon regarding changes to quarantine rules for students. The rule, which can be found via the link below, gives parents a choice whether or not to quarantine a student exposed to Covid-19 who is not exhibiting symptoms of the disease. MCSD will comply with the Emergency Rule, signed by State Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo. The district urges all parents, particularly those with students who are known to have been exposed to Covid-19, to continue to monitor those students closely for symptoms of Covid-19 and to keep them home if they show any symptoms at all. "Our main goal is to keep students and school staff safe from disease so they can continue to attend school every day," said Superintendent Theresa Axford. "We need everyone to work together toward that goal. We encourage everyone to continue to wear masks while indoors, practice safe-distancing, cleanliness and to be vaccinated if eligible. These are the steps we know will help us to reach our goal of keeping our schools healthy and operating at their full capacity."

  • Masks

    As we deal with the Covid pandemic and the changes it has made to our day to day lives, remember: we must all work together to beat the virus. One way to make our community safer is for all of us to wear masks when we are inside or plan to be around other people who are not our family members. When I wear my mask, I protect you; when you wear your mask, you protect me. We are all in this together!

  • Stay Home if Sick

    If you or someone in your family is feeling sick or tests positive for Covid that means everyone who has had close contact with the infected person may very well be carrying the virus. It is important for those who are symptomatic, or who have been exposed to the virus to stay away from others until the danger of spreading the virus is over. This means staying away from school until the danger of infecting others is past.
