Blitz Week, which took place from Feb. 24-28 sent a clear
message to Albany - that we're not willing to sacrifice funding
for our students any longer. In the past four years, the
Monticello Central School District has lost $12 MILLION in
funding to the GEA or the Gap Elimination Adjustment. While
Blitz Week may be over, you can still keep the momentum going.
Visit our Blitz Week page to see how.

Cancellations, delays or early dismissals are posted on the school
and on the district
School closings are also announced on the following local TV and radio stations: RNN, Fox 5, YNN, WALL (1340AM), WDNH (95.3FM), WELV (107.9FM), WGNY (96.7FM), WHUD (100.7FM), WJFF (90.5FM), WPDH (101.5FM), WSUL (98.3FM), WVOS (95.9FM) and Thunder 102 (102FM).
It is best to rely on more than one source of information when it comes to weather-related announcements. This is particularly true in situations that involve power outages, which can affect the district’s ability to send electronic notifications. Emergency preparedness agencies have advised that residents have access to a battery-powered radio so that they can receive information if other communication channels are unavailable.
Thank you, and please stay safe this winter!
