New this semester:  Because you guys have been doing a great job being responsible we are going to try going without WIN passes this semester.  So here are your expectations.  You still are responsible for checking the WIN list and getting to the rooms you are requested. If you are not requested you are still expected to be in a classroom.  You are not allowed to hide out somewhere. But now at the end you don’t need a pass to leave and enter 5th block.  Again this is a privilege you have earned.  Please continue to be responsible.


Attention all students 9-12:  If you have invited a guest to the WPA dance on Friday, February 9th who is not a Monticello student, you must register your guest in the office.  There is a pad to write your guest’s name on along with a guest registration form.  The registration form must be signed by the guest’s principal and returned to the office by Thursday, February 8th at 3:15 pm.  Keep in mind that you may invite only one guest and your guests can not be a middle school student.
