On Tuesday, voters in the part of the county served by the Monroe County Community School Corporation returned three incumbents to their seats on the board of trustees and put one new member on the board.
Winning a seat on the non-partisan board for the first time was April Hennessey, who prevailed in a three-way race that included Matthew Smith and incumbent Sue Wanzer.
Incumbent Cathy Fuentes-Rowher prevailed over challenger Marsha Lovejoy.
Incumbent Jacinda Townsend-Gides prevailed over challenger Philip Eskew, Jr.
Shortly after noon, Monroe County Community School Corporation used its alert system and Facebook page to confirm that its in-person re-opening plan is on course: Tuesday will start the “code yellow” phase of instruction.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, MCCSC has been operating so far this fall under code red, as defined by the district’s green-yellow-red color scheme. Red means all grade levels get online-only instruction. Green means all grade levels get in-person instruction, with an online option.
