Monterey Community School

Growing confident and capable learners

  • Welcome to Monterey Community!

    At Monterey Community School, the students are at the heart of everything we do! We are dedicated to keeping our students, staff, and families safe during the 2020-21 school year.  

    Additional Considerations

    What is Monterey doing to ensure a safe and healthy school year?

    • Delaying the start of school to Thursday, Aug. 27.
    • Introducing a staggered start to the year. Students return on Thursday, Aug. 27. There is no school for students on Monday, Aug. 31, or Tuesday, Sept. 1. There is also no school for students on Monday, Sept. 7, in observation of the Labor Day Holiday. The first full week of school for students is the week of Sept. 14.
    • Filtering indoor air with portable air cleaners with HEPA filters, maximizing ventilation, and increasing circulation of outdoor air. 
    • Establishing student cohorts group no bigger than 30 students. Cohorting has been found to be the most effective control strategy by reducing the number of contacts between students and adults throughout the school day.
    • Staggering arrival and departure times for schools. Additional information from Monterey will be available soon.
    • Wearing face masks as much as possible is required for students and staff. 
    • Adding hand sanitization stations in every classroom, school hallways, and school buses. 
    • Reconfiguring and reimagining schools and classrooms – from traffic flow to furniture – to promote social distancing.
    • Modifying physical education, specials, and extracurricular activities to limit contact, modify the use of shared equipment, and encourage distance. 
    • Digital thermometers will be provided to families who do not have one at home.

What is a Community School?

  • Community schools bring together many partners to offer a range of supports and opportunities to children, youth, families and communities. Partners work to achieve these results: Children are ready to enter school; students attend school consistently; students are actively involved in learning and their community; families are increasingly involved with their children's education; schools are engaged with families and communities; students succeed academically; students are healthy - physically, socially, and emotionally; students live and learn in a safe, supportive, and stable environment and communities are desirable places to live.
