From the Principal

Dear Parents,


Well this has most certainly been an interesting start to our Spring.  I hope that this letter finds all of you healthy and safe.  Like I have said in many of my communications to all of you, even though the building has closed, school has not stopped.  Many of you are learning and exploring with your teachers using the Schoology platform, and you are meeting through ZOOM.   That's fantastic, and remember you never know when Mr. LaPorte might just show up in one of your meetings.  :)

As we do every spring, we will continue to offer the opportunity to purchase a yearbook.   If you click on the link provided below, you will be directed to a flyer that provides and online opportunity to order a yearbook for the 2019-2020 school year.  

I hope that all of you are remembering our Monfort Expectations and are continuing to BE Kind, Be Respectful and Be Responsible.

I can't wait to see all of you again soon.

Mr. LaPorte
