Thanks Alison Link and Morristown Park & Rec for this fabulous family kickball event!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Early this morning, October 18th, we were notified of a positive COVID-19 case at Morristown Elementary. Fortunately, this situation had minimal impact on our school community. Due to having an organized contact tracing system we were able to quickly determine who needed to be contacted. We have finalized that process and we will continue to monitor this situation closely.  If you did not receive a phone call from our Nurse Jamie this morning, then your child was not a close contact. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or Jamie with any questions. Thank you for everything you are doing to keep our community safe.  Keeping children home when they are sick or have had an exposure really does have an impact on keeping school open for all.

The Turtle Fur Company in Morrisville, just gave MES a huge donation of hats, neck warmers, and masks!  They are truly a generous, community minded organization and we thank them for their constant support.

Thank you to all the families who participated in the Hopes and Dreams conferences with your child’s teacher.  We had 84% participation!  It was so nice to see parents back in the building and able to see all the beautiful student work on display in our hallways and classrooms. If you weren’t able to schedule a conference, please call or email your child’s teacher.  They can arrange a meeting, phone call, or virtual conference for you.

Kindergarten trip to the fire station.

Sincerely,
Kate Torrey, MES Principal
