04/1/2020 To: MCUD #6 Parents/Guardians Re: Extension of Mandated Closure Dear Parents and Community Members: I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Yesterday, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through April 30 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19. During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain open and learning will continue for all students - just through a different format. While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at the Morrison School District, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to take on this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together. It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. Thanks again. Stay Healthy Scott Vance Superintendent

Congratulations to Morrison High School’s Scholastic Bowl team for achieving a second-place finish in the Three Rivers Conference this season! Morrison finished the season with a 10-2 record.
Good Morning, As we are preparing to enter in an uncharted phase of our educational experience. Please know that our teachers and administrators are working tirelessly to get everything ready to continue to educate our students. Before our E-Learning formally begins tomorrow there are several items that I want to make you aware of, additional information, including links to daily/weekly assignments, can be found on the E-Learning segment of the District website. Parents will NO longer need to take attendance daily. Fridays in April will be classified as "Remote Learning Planning Days". These days will allow our teachers the opportunity to plan, prepare videos/instructional packets, and many other things for the upcoming week. On these days teachers may not be available to respond to student questions. If students have questions on those days they may submit them and the teacher will get to them as soon as they can. Lunch will be provided for students who sign up using the google form throughout the mandated closure. For the safety of students and staff we are limiting access to the buildings so if you need anything from your students locker etc...they should get them today. If you cannot make it in today please contact your students principal to make alternate arrangements. As we have stated before this situation is one that none of us has ever encountered. Everyone in our district is working to make this transition as smooth as possible. I cannot say enough how proud I am of our staff and the effort they have put in. We will continue to do whatever we can to meet the needs of all our students. If during the course of this closure you have any questions please feel free to contact me or your student(s) principal(s). Thank you again for your continued patience. Working together we will get through this! Stay Healthy! Scott Vance Superintendent

People wishing to get personal items from their students lockers may do so today and tomorrow. In the event that our closure is extended the district will provide time to pick up chrome books, packets, and other educational related materials at a later date. If you don’t need something from the school please stay home. We will provide access again at the appropriate time to get everything your child needs.
Students will have access to the high school Friday, March 20 between 8:00-12:00 for the pupose of gathering materials. Teachers may have been in contact via email with instructions for collection of new educational content. Please use this time wisely & safely.
Hey MHS students, even though we’re not in school it’s still time to do the March MVP. The nomination form has been shared with you, so take a minute and make a nomination. This month we will be taking all of the nominations (that are not just silly ones for Shockwaves or something 😂) and turning them into a google presentation to be shared with everyone!! So think about who has brightened your days at MHS and nominate them!!
Check out this very extensive list of learning resources you can use at home! https://sites.google.com/morrisonschools.org/homelearningresourcescovid19/home
Students now have access to take AR quizzes at home! Go to https://hosted46.renlearn.com/182260/ to log in. Your child should know their username and password. If not, contact their teacher. Not sure what the quiz number is? Go to www.arbookfind.com to look this up. You can search by the book title on the actual AR site as well.
I wanted to remind all junior high families that the building will be open for students to come in and get books, materials, chromebooks, PE clothes, and anything else they may need. It will be open today from 2:00pm until 6:00pm and tomorrow from 8:00am until 12:00pm. Students will also be able to check books out from the library if they wish.
Just a reminder that if you ordered a lunch for this week they will be available today in the high school foyer beginning at 11:00. Deliveries will also begin at 11:00 am today.
Northside parents: In an effort to maintain as much normalcy as possible, Mr. Harridge will be posting videos, hopefully daily, for students to watch at home. He will be leading the pledge as well as sharing a short message. He also hopes to post videos of him reading books as well. Please subscribe to his channel to receive notifications when videos are posted. Here is a link to his video for today: https://youtu.be/amFzjSnXVWc
Feel free to read the attached social story to your students about the current school closure written by Mrs. Rodriguez. https://drive.google.com/a/morrisonschools.org/file/d/15tnR7QQkLc2iIY3V4RPEEMAJWbB3UtbR/view?usp=drivesdk

03/15/2020 To: MCUD #6 Parents/Guardians Re: COVID-19 UPDATE (2) Dear Parents/Guardians: Earlier this evening I made the decision to close school tomorrow March 16th, 2020. Please know that this decision was not made lightly, but was made in consideration for the safety of our students and staff. As a result of the decision to close there are several items that need to be shared and questions answered. Will these days need to be made up? The state board of education has determined that all school days between March 17th and March 30th will be designated as Act of God Days. Act of God days are utilized when circumstances beyond the district’s control cause a school/district to close and therefore DO NOT need to be made up. Tomorrow (March 16th) was not designated as an Act of God Day and will therefore need to be made up. The decision on when tomorrow will be made up will be made at a later date depending on when we return to regularly scheduled classes. Is it possible that the mandated school closure be extended? At this point that is a possibility. The governor in his statewide conference call with superintendents on Friday stated that an extension may be a possibility. Will the District alter Spring Break? NO. The district will maintain the current Spring Break schedule. Is the District going to engage in E learning? Not at this time. Since these days are designated as Act of God Days (see #1 above) they do not count as instructional days. Furthermore the ISBE is continuing to develop guidelines as it pertains to E Learning and until such time as those guidelines are set the District will not be engaging in an E Learning program. In the event that the mandated closure is extended the District will notify parents of the plan to continue your child’s instruction. What can I do to help with my child’s education? The District will be posting links to educational resources that will help to keep students engaged and reinforce learning that has already occurred. Will lunch be provided for students during the mandated closure? YES. A school closure lunch order form was sent out earlier tonight. If you did not receive that notification you can phone into the district office to place your order. The district will offer grab and go lunches or the option to have lunches delivered. Where can we go to get more information? All updates pertaining to COVID-19 and our District will come from my office and will be posted on the District social media sites, website, and emailed to parents/guardians as soon as possible. Are extracurricular activities allowed to practice during the closure? NO. As long as the mandated closure is in effect all extracurricular activities are cancelled. The District will continue post updates as they are made available from the IHSA and the IESA. Additionally the high school weight room will not be open. Will students have access to the building to retrieve books etc…? There will be a minimum number of staff on site during the closure, but there is no guarantee that that means you will be able to access the building. If you must get into the building calling the district office to see if there is staff on site that day is recommended. Sincerely, Scott Vance Scott Vance Superintendent
Attention parents of incoming kindergarten students: The parent meeting that was scheduled for Tuesday, March 17 will be rescheduled for a later date and time. Thank you for your understanding.
Please read the following message from the Northside/Southside PTO: Based on the district’s closing from March 16-30, 2020 due to COVID - 19, we have decided to cancel the Hurts Donut fundraiser this year. Although we’re disappointed that we had to make this choice, we are uncertain as to what the next few weeks will bring and if we could make the fundraiser up at a later date. Students who have already turned in their fundraiser forms and money will have the envelopes returned to them when school reopens. If an earlier timeframe is desired, please private message our Facebook page or a member of the PTO. As this fundraiser was meant to provide programming and cover the cost of field trip bussing for our Northside and Southside students, we hope to find other ways of raising funds in the near future.

Please DO NOT drop them off on the road outside the parking lot, or amongst the parked cars in the first lane of the parking lot.
