Vaccination RequirementsFamilies with students entering grades K, 6, and 12 should pay special attention to boosters needed to begin attending school. A copy of the guidelines can be found at:
Indiana Code states a document of immunizations must be provided to the school upon enrollment which shows the child has received at least the minimum number of doses for his/her age:
- the school grants a waiver that may not exceed twenty (20) days; or
- it has been determined there are extreme circumstances and the parent shall furnish a written statement and a time schedule approved by a physician or the local health department for the completion of the remainder of the immunizations; or
- A medical or religious exemption is signed and on file with the school and renewed yearly.
Please contact your health care provider or the Morgan County Health Department (765-342-6621) for more information and recommendations regarding these vaccines. If you need additional information about your child's documentation, please contact your child's school nurse. Laura Gibbs, RN Monrovia Elementary. Kami Shields, RN Monrovia Middle/ High School.
Health and Accident InsuranceThe Monroe-Gregg School District does not provide any type of health or accident insurance for injuries incurred by your child at school or while participating in school sports and/or extracurricular activities.

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.
Exciting News: We Are Building an Auditorium
Construction will begin soon on a new auditorium-Performing Arts Center. The Performing Arts Center is currently set to open March 2018. The Performing Arts Center will be located between the middle school gymnasium and soccer field. An architectural rendering is shown above. The planning for this outstanding facility was started four years ago in the school district’s strategic plan. Low interest rates have made the funding possible. New band and choir rooms will be located in the new facility along with support rooms for performing arts. Renovation of existing band and choir rooms into classrooms and renovation of the Ag Science area will also be part of the project. More information will appear in future newsletters. Thanks goes to the school board for their vision and planning and to the community for your support.
