  • A Message from the Superintendent Regarding Vaccination Mandate

    El Monte Union is committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment for all of our students and staff. On Oct. 6, the Board of Trustees directed the District to require that all eligible students who are 12 years of age and older be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by Jan. 3 to continue to take part in on-site instruction. Student athletes must be fully vaccinated by Nov. 19. To be considered fully vaccinated, two weeks must have passed after receiving the second dose of the vaccine. Adding vaccination for COVID-19 to the existing vaccine requirements for our students ensures that we can safely continue offering the highest-quality public instruction, rigorous in-person learning, and extracurricular activities on our campuses that promote the growth and development of our students.

  • El Monte Union to Hold Public Hearing, Discuss Shift to By-Trustee Formation

    The El Monte Union High School District is launching a series of public meetings to gather community input as the process of shifting from at-large elections to by-trustee area elections begins. The shift means that instead of residents voting for any board candidate on the ballot within the District’s boundaries, residents will vote for a single candidate residing in their newly drawn trustee-area, usually one-fifth of the entire District. The change will go into effect November 2022. Our community is encouraged to participate in our live and virtual meetings, click the story title for more information on meeting opportunities.
