School Linked Services (SLS) provides students and families with school based coordinated services to improve health and wellbeing of families through a community participatory approach. School Linked Services (SLS) Coordinators, located at the school district or a school site, develop partnership with schools, public agencies and community based organization in Santa Clara County to improve protective factors, e.g., family relationship, decrease risk-factors, e.g., behavioral and emotional problems, enhance service accessibility and resource linkage, and to support children’s success in school and in life.

Campus Collaborative

The purpose of the Campus Collaborative (CC) is to allow students, families, school personnel, community members and stakeholders to come together in discussing, planning, implementing and evaluating the School Linked Services initiative at each school. The Campus Collaborative takes on the community-based participatory approach by highlighting the following principles:

  • Recognizing the community as a unit of identity
  • Building on collective strengths and shared resources
  • Facilitating partnership and capacity building throughout the process
  • Disseminating pertinent information, data and other findings to all participants
  • Involving a long-term process and commitment
  • Seeking balance between evaluation and action

Positive school attendance is critical to a child’s success in school. One missed school day equals six hours of missed classroom instruction. Every day counts.  A good routine begins at home with a consistent schedule for waking up and going to bed. Students should have their backpack and materials ready the night before for in preparation for a successful day.

We recommend parents to review their child’s attendance every two weeks. You can view your child’s attendance on PowerSchool Parent Portal or you may request an attendance print-out from our school attendance assistant, Christy Naderi at cnaderi [at] If you have not set-up your Powerschool parent account to view your child’s attendance and grades, please contact Monroe registrar, Erin Rupp at erupp [at]

Below are a few key reminders about attendance:

·        First period begins every day at 8:00am.

·        Attendance is taken in every class period, 1st-6th, each day.  *When students are absent 18 class periods, a truancy letter will be generated.

·        Students who arrive after 8:30am are considered truant. * 3 truant incidents will generate a truancy letter.

·        If your child misses school, please call the 24 hour attendance line (408) 341-7022 or email cnaderi [at] to verify your child’s absence. Every absence must be verified.

·        Absences must be verified within 20 school days.

·        Parent are encouraged to schedule medical appointments after 2:34 pm. If your child arrives to school late or leaves early for an appointment, parents must verify the late arrival and/or early departure.

·        For a list of excusable absences, please review our attendance policies located in our 2019-2020 parent handbook. The link is below:

The Red Ribbon campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program. Every year, during October 23rd-31st, schools across the nation recognize Red Ribbon week through various awareness activities that educate students about the dangers involving drug use. This year we held daily morning trivia contests regarding vaping and drug use in addition to lunch time activities where we handed out resources on the impact of vaping and marijuana use to students. In addition, we held a poster and video contest in which students collaborated on projects to share the why and the importance of being drug free. Staff voted on each selection. There was  a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner in each category.

Congratulations to the winners and to all those who participated to bring awareness on this important topic!

7th grade students read and learned about Salva Dut in the novel A Long Walk to Water. After learning that he created the organization Water for South Sudan, which helps build and sustain wells to provide clean water for villages in South Sudan, students wanted to help out.  The 7th students were inspired and helped raised funds for Salva Dut's organization. The students beat their initial goal of $500 and raised over a $1,000 in two weeks. We are so proud of the empathy, collaboration, and passion our 7th students demonstrated as they raised fund for a great cause. Awesome job Mavericks!
