Dear Monomoy Families and Staff,

Congratulations on a great first two weeks of school! This year has gotten off to an extremely smooth start, and we have our fantastic students, families, teachers, and staff to thank for that.

I’ll admit, it’s a pleasure to share happy news and updates with you, instead of All Covid, All The Time. Our halls are bustling with activity, students are focused, thoughtful, and having fun, too. Our educators are leading creative and engaging lessons, aided by all of the education support professionals in our buildings.

Last night was the first of our Curriculum Nights, this one at MRMS. The others will be held in the coming weeks, so be sure to check our district calendar as well as messages from your building principal for details. We highly recommend that all parents/guardians attend these events, even if you have had students in the district or building for many years. It’s an excellent opportunity to develop and grow relationships with your student’s school team, which has a tremendous impact on future success.

We also encourage you to participate in our Parent University events ‒ the next one will be Monday, September 19, at 6 p.m. in the MRHS Auditorium. This Parent University will focus on School Safety, to lead off School Safety Week across MRSD. Next week, students, staff, and public safety will be working together to participate in drills and training exercises in all of our buildings. On Friday, September 23, students will have a half day of school so that staff can be trained on CrisisGo, a new app that we will be implementing for emergency communications, as well as some other safety trainings. Parents and guardians will get more information on CrisisGo in the coming weeks.

Speaking of engagement, another way for you to connect with our schools is through our Community Engagement Coordinator, Joy Jordan. Joy can serve as a liaison for both families and staff, helping connect people to the right department, resource, organization, or person for their needs. She also coordinates volunteers in our schools, so if you are interested in participating in some way, let her know. Feel free to reach out to her at

I look forward to seeing you at the Parent University on Monday night. Take care.

Scott Carpenter, Ed.D.
