Monticello Schools uses School Messenger to get the instant word out on school related dismissals and other announcements. We can use email, phone calls, social media and text messages. School closing announcements are also made on television and radio stations. Text messages are the best way to recieve the information as phone calls may not be made during early morning or late evening hours. Some parents/students do not receive these messages via text because they must sign up to make it happen. Text YES to 68453 to receive these message via text. Regular message rates apply.
Also consider following @MonticelloCUSD on Twitter to receive these messages as well as other school related information about Monticello Schools.
