MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS SUPERINTENDENT APPROVES STAGGERED AFTER-IRMA BACK TO SCHOOL DATES

MONROE COUNTY, Fla --- Monroe County Schools Superintendent Mark Porter has made the decision to resume school on a staggered start basis. This decision is based on the assessment of all schools, the continued improvement of necessary infrastructure and the readiness of various communities to support school reopening.

“The revised staggered start reopening of our schools is based on input from many sources and is supported by county and community leaders. Reopening schools is a significant step toward returning to a sense of normalcy for all of our communities. These expectations will be implemented with compassion and flexibility for students and employees,” stated Superintendent Porter.

The following schools will open on Monday, September 25th with employees requested to report on Thursday, September 21st:
Plantation Key School
Coral Shores High School
Key Largo School
Ocean Studies School
Treasure Village Montessori

All of the following schools in Key West and Marathon will open Wednesday, September 27th, with employees reporting Monday and Tuesday, the 25th and 26th:
Stanley Switlik Elementary School
Marathon Middle High School
Gerald Adams Elementary School
Horace O’Bryant School
Key West Collegiate Academy
Key West High School
May Sands Montessori Charter School
Poinciana Elementary School
Sigsbee Charter School

Schools in the area most impacted by the storm will open on Monday, October 2nd, with employees reporting on Thursday, September 28th:
Big Pine Academy
Sugarloaf School

Superintendent Mark Porter initially set a tentative date for all schools to start on Monday, September 25th and made the change after consulting with district officials and feedback from the community. Mr. Porter said he always intended to be flexible for the sake of students, families, and employees of the Monroe County Schools. This schedule is also subject to further revision based on necessary infrastructure improvement.

Transportation services will be restored as well, but will require flexibility and modification of prior routes and timing. In addition, any student who returns to Monroe County prior to the scheduled opening of their school of attendance, particularly Big Pine Academy and Sugarloaf School will be allowed to attend at an open Monroe County School.

The Monroe County School District serves approximately 8,600 students throughout the upper, middle, lower keys, and Key West. The accredited school district consists of 10 public schools, six charter schools, as well as alternative and virtual programs.

FOCUS PARENT PORTAL
FOCUS Parent Portal Registration is now available!
FOCUS logo

The FOCUS Parent Portal is a tool designed to enhance communication and involvement for you in your child's education.  This portal will allow you to monitor your child's progress in school by providing timely access to both assignments and grades that are entered by the teacher throughout the grading period. This communication tool will improve your ability to assist your child and to communicate with the teacher if necessary.
 
In order to create a Parent Portal Account during the December 1 - 31 open enrollment period, you will need these three things:
1.  Your child's 10-digit ID number - this information is available from your child, from their portal page, or on their report card.
2.  The last 4 digits of your child's Social Security Number.  The SSN must be on file with the school in order for online registration to be completed.
3.  Your child's date of birth.
 

If you do not have the information listed above, or your child's SSN and/or date of birth are not in the FOCUS system, you will need to register in person at your child's school after January 9, 2017.

Once you have created your FOCUS Parent Portal account, you will be able to view your child's grades and attendance information by visiting the FOCUS login page (also linked under the Parents drop-down menu above).
