    Monroe Township School District will be participing in remote learning for students effective Wednesday, March 18th until further directive from Governor Murphy.

    This closing is to adhere to the state's recommendations for social distancing. During this time MTMS and the rest of the district will be operating via an online format. With this in mind, the School Counseling Department at MTMS will be available via email and Google Hangout during the remote school day (8:00am-3:00pm).

    What does this mean for school counseling services? 

    This means that your child's School Counselor will be providing remote guidance to students and families during this time. School Counselors will be online during the school day (8:00am-3:00pm) to respond to questions and provide assistance. To e-mail your School Counselor you can click directly on their name below:

    These pages also provide links to resources that can help facilite conversations with your student regarding their concerns with COVID-19.
