November 1, 2018:
The Monroe-Gregg School District received a bomb threat this morning. The Sheriff’s Department and the State Police were contacted immediately. Although the authorities did not feel this was a “true” threat; all threats to our school or students are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. The threat was determined to be a hoax. We commend our security officers, Sheriff’s Department and State Police for their quick and professional response. As always we will continue to put the safety of our students above all else and again we can’t stress enough our deep appreciation for the swift response and actions by the Indiana State Police & Morgan County Sheriff’s Department. As a result your student was never in danger.

School & Student Safety
Monroe-Gregg School District is pleased to announce the continued enhancement of a safe and secure learning environment for our students, parents, and staff. The district has added new camera surveillance and campus security throughout the district. We believe in today’s ever changing environment, it is best to be proactive when meeting the safety challenges, needs, and concerns of our community.
School Bus Safety - The Danger Zone
What is the "danger zone"? It is the area surrounding the bus where children are hard to see. We want your children to be safe when they travel to and from school. Please help us by::
- If your student misses the bus at their regular stop, do not follow the bus to the next stop and let your child walk/run beside the bus to get on. The driver cannot see the student in the danger zone, especially if it is dark and could possibly hit them as they pull away from the stop. Take your student to school.
- Make children stay at least 10 feet away from the bus until they begin to enter. Children will be able to see the driver and the driver can see them.
- If children must cross the street to the bus they should cross the street 10 feet (five giant steps) in front of the bus where they can see the driver and the driver can see them.
- Warn the children that, if they drop something, they should never pick it up. Instead, they should tell the driver and follow the driver's instructions. If they bend over to pick up a dropped object, they might not be seen by the driver and could be hurt if the driver pulls away from the stop.
- Remind children to look to the right before they step off the bus. Car drivers in a hurry sometimes try to sneak by the bus on the right hand side.
- Teach your child to secure loose drawstrings and other objects that may get caught in the handrail or door of the bus as they are exiting.
- If you meet your child at the bus stop after school, wait on the side where the child will be dropped off, not across the street. Children can be so excited at seeing you after school that they may dash across the street and forget the safety rules.
