MCHS School Closure and E-Learning Days

Morris Community High School will be closed starting Monday, March 16 through at least March 29, with a possible return on March 30.  The week of March 16 will count as e-learning days.  The week of March 23 is our regularly scheduled spring break.

Students may come to MCHS on Monday, March 16 between 9:00 A.M. and 11:00 A.M. to get materials from their locker or to check out a Chromebook, if needed.  Such visits must be in-and-out; no classes are being held.

Our e-learning plan will be in effect the week of March 16, but I am providing teachers additional time to prepare and post lessons, if needed, so please be patient and stay tuned to Google Classroom. 

Since this is not a weather-related closure, please note that certified staff may report on Monday, March 16 to work in their rooms/offices if they wish.  Non-certified staff are required to report on Monday, March 16.

Starting March 17, the campus will be closed with the exception of maintenance/housekeeping staff and other employees with administrative approval.

If you have questions or need support, our school nurse and social workers will be available.  Please keep our nurse informed of any medical concerns.

I will keep you advised of any changes or extensions to the closure.
