The Monroe City School Board will provide employees with up to 5 days of COVID Leave for circumstances as defined below:  

  • Five (5) days of additional paid COVID sick leave will be granted where the employee is unable to work because the employee is quarantined (pursuant to Federal, State, or Local government order or advice of a health care provider) due to being identified as close contact of a positive case and which occurred during the employee's official duties as a Monroe City School Board employee.

  • 2021 COVID Leave does not carry over from one year to the next. Employees are not entitled to reimbursement for unused leave upon termination, resignations, retirement, or other separation from employment. 
  • 2021 COVID Leave will be funded through ESSR funds while available. 
  • 2021 COVID Leave will only remain in effect June 1, 2022 or be changed by order of the Monroe City School Board.
