Welcome to Monson-Sultana School!  Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about our school, staff, and students!  As we approach the 2017-2018 school year, we are excited about continuing the many great traditions of Monson-Sultana School, but also to be create an even better future for our school and students.  Our over-arching mission at Monson-Sultana is to provide the best educational experience possible to each and every student and family. We are blessed with a dedicated, caring, and compassionate faculty committed to student learning. Our support staff is comprised of individuals with knowledge and expertise who always put students first.   Each of these groups is fully supported by a five member Board of Trustees elected by our community. Together we have one over-arching goal; to ensure the continuous improvement in academic achievement for every student.

At Monson-Sultana, we believe in educating the whole child by providing an instructional program that is rigorous, meaningful, and aligned with State Standards. Additionally, the District provides specialized programs that meet the needs of our gifted and talented students, special needs students and students in a variety of alternative educational programs. We are becoming increasingly advanced in our integration of technology, and every K-8 student now has a Chromebook for the instructional day.  We are especially proud of our banner music program which has garnered numerous awards over the years.

In our long-standing tradition of excellence, we maintain our commitment to students, parents, community members, and staff to provide the best educational experience possible.  We renew this commitment yearly in hopes that together, we will continue to improve our effectiveness in educating the students of today, providing them with a solid educational foundation that will serve them well as they become productive citizens of tomorrow.

Safe Schools Plan

Our school has a comprehensive, up-to-date safety plan in place to address a variety of emergency conditions. The plans are reinforced through drills with students and at regular meetings of staff.  You can review the plan by clicking here.
 
Our school disaster plan includes emergency procedures in case of:

  • Traumatic Incidents
  • Imminent Danger—Code Red
  • Evacuation
  • Civil Defense/Disorder
  • Bomb Threat/ Bomb Emergency
  • Earthquake
  • Chemical Spill
  • Crime in Progress
  • Fire/Explosion

 

We utilize a state of the art communications system provided by SchoolMessenger that enables us to call every student's home in a matter of minutes in the event of an emergency.
 
On-going training increases our ability to deal with conflict, anger, and other threats to safety. Our plan stresses prevention; our goal is to be prepared.

Your children are surrounded daily by professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping their students. In the event of an emergency, you can count on these caring individuals to make student safety their first concern.
 
In most incidents, public safety and emergency management personnel will play a critical role in identifying the specific nature, cause, and extent of the emergency, as will provide guidance to administrators on the appropriate response steps.

If you have questions about your child's safety and school support responses, please contact our Principal/Superintendent. Your understanding, support, and cooperation are vital as we take these precautionary actions on behalf of our students.
