Thank you Monticello Community!

Dear Monticello Community School District,

We had a fantastic turnout for the school facility election on September 11, 2018.  Over 1,250 people voted at the polls and over 750 people voted with absentee ballots.  In total, over 2,000 people voted in the election.  For everyone that voted, I am writing this letter to say THANK YOU for coming out to the polls and showing your support for the Monticello Community School District.  Over the last several months it has been so amazing to see the community show their support for the school district and this project in so many ways.

To all those individuals and groups that have contributed to this project over the last fourteen months, such as, the school facility committee, the school board, the MCSD staff, the “VOTE YES” committee, and the many volunteers that came to community meetings, stuffed envelopes, canvassed the town, wrote an editorial, put your name in the newspaper, posted a sign in your yard or business, etc…THANK YOU!  Your commitment has been remarkable!!!  The good news is that every person in this district will benefit from the results of your hard work and dedication to this project over the last fourteen months.

What happens next?  Over the next few months the school district will engage in the design process with OPN Architects to finalize a project blueprint, which will be used to collect bids from contractors in the upcoming months.  If all goes as planned we should be able to select contractors and have shovels in the ground by late spring 2019.

As we move forward with this project I hope everyone can come together and remember that we are all one community of people.  It is our time to embrace change together as we move forward in the school facility process and remember that the next generation of Monticello students will certainly benefit from our decision to update our school facilities.

Thank you very much for all of your support!!!

Sincerely,
