Brad Hanson, Superintendent

        If you visit Monett Middle School, Monett Intermediate School, or Central Park Elementary campuses during the school day over the next few weeks, you will notice a new safety feature in place at each of those campuses. We have installed access control features on the main entry doorways at each of these locations. What this means is that you will find all front entry doors locked once school begins each morning. Visitors to campus will have to request entrance by pushing a button on an intercom panel. This panel enables the school office staff to see visitors and to communicate with them before remotely opening the doors.

Monett Middle School is kicking off an attendance competition between the grade levels. Some of our local industries have monitored and celebrated consecutive days without accidents. Similarly, MMS will be monitoring student attendance with the “Make Your Mark” competition.

The Missouri Department of Health requires that students have immunizations to prevent the spread of many potentially dangerous diseases. Many younger parents today do not know what the symptoms of polio, whooping cough, or measles can be like due to the development of vaccines against these serious diseases. Those and other childhood diseases caused death and disability in many children in the early to middle part of the 20th century.
