Monrovia Schools Orientation Day

Monrovia Unified School District students bid farewell to summer and hello to a new school year today (Aug. 14), as they participated in orientations, toured campuses, and picked up class schedules, and committed to a successful 2019-20 academic year.

At the elementary level, parents accompanied students as they got acclimatized to their classrooms and greeted friends and teachers. Students took photos with teachers, principals, and friends before kicking off the first day of school.

Students learned about school culture and discussed the new responsibilities that come with being a middle school student.

Monrovia High School held a special orientation for its incoming freshman class. Students were greeted with a high-five line of administrators, teachers, and staff. The Class of 2023 participated in orientation and pledged to their success in 2023 by signing gowns that will hang in the foyer for the entire academic year - a reminder every time students walk by.

Monrovia Unified offers a slate of innovative instructional and enrichment programs, including coding, dual-language immersion, robotics, music, theater and arts - giving all students an opportunity to explore new interests and develop new skills.

"Our entire team of dedicated professionals in the Monrovia Unified School District looks forward to working with our students and exploring new tools for their continued success," Superintendent Katherine Thorossian said.

Monrovian Thanks Neighbors for Saving Her Life

Monrovian Jenny Polizzi posted on the social media site, Nextdoor, that her neighbors saved her life. She writes ...

"I had a stroke as the result of a fall two weeks ago on Monday July 29th around 10 am. I am home recovering now. It was a miracle that I was in the exact right place at the exact right time. That our neighbors were out for a walk. That someone on the ambulance decided to take me Huntington Hospital.

"I owe my life to 2 neighbors, a woman and a man around 10am on N Myrtle. I was out walking my 2 dogs Jack and Flora. They passed us and we said hi. I think I saw a young man with a dog. Next thing I remember I was lying on my back on the sidewalk bleeding. I heard someone say 911. I saw the woman talking to me but I didn't understand what you were saying. I had my Apple watch on and was able to tell Siri call my daughter and then she was there. I don't really remember much. I am forever grateful to you both. So are my daughters, son and my grandchildren. You saved my life.

I do remember that when I was in the ambulance that I was talking but they didn't understand what I was saying. They called a Stroke Code at the Huntington trauma center. They gave me 'the shot' TPA. It immediately broke up the clot and almost entirely reversed the stroke. There is only a 2-3 hour Golden hours that you can get the shot to stop a stroke.

"I am forever grateful to you both. So are my daughters, son and my grandchildren. You saved my life."

Fine For False Alarms Up to $400

Monrovia Police officers respond to nearly 2,000 false alarms each year. The response to false alarms unnecessarily pulls the responding officers from other endeavors, decreasing the effectiveness of their patrol duties and increasing response times to other calls for service.

Once officers arrive, if there are no signs of forced entry or tampering, Monrovia Police Officers will leave the homeowner a “False Alarm Notice,” informing the home or business owner the police were called to their address regarding an alarm activation.

Monrovia Municipal Code Ordinance 9.47 was established in the best interest of public safety, public welfare, and convenience of the City, as well as fairness to its citizens. The City requires those persons generating an unusual number of false alarms to be deterred from allowing their alarm systems to generate false alarms, which contributes to the City’s expense for responding to those false alarms. The City allows no more than three false alarm responses free of charge in a 12-month period.

Monrovia Municipal Code Ordinance 9.47.050 establishes a service charge to be billed to and paid by the alarm user of a particular alarm system for the following false alarms:

• 4th False Alarm - $200.00
• 5th False Alarm - $300.00
• 6th False Alarm - $400.00
• Subsequent False Alarms - $400.00

This fee is established by resolution for excessive alarm response. Alarms caused by criminal activity, earthquake, weather or conditions beyond the control of the owner would not be considered false.

It is in your best interest to ensure your alarm system is in proper working order and a valid alarm permit is on file with the City of Monrovia.
