Dear District 54 Students and Parents Due to the continued Tier 3 Mitigation standards still in place from the IDPH, all Morris Grade School District 54 Athletics are still paused. Therefore, no winter sports (including boys basketball and girls volleyball) will begin until further notice. Once the State of Illinois and the IESA have released further information and grant permission for these athletics to take place, Morris Grade School will inform students and parents. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
