Morris Grade School Parents- At approximately 12:40 p.m., we received word that there was a strong gas smell in the kitchen area. Out of precaution, we evacuated the building and the Morris Fire Department did an investigation. They gave us the all-clear, and students have returned to their normal day. Our students and staff did an amazing job following instructions. We want to thank the Morris Fire Department for the quick and effective response.

We want to inform you that we are canceling school for Friday, Aug. 25th, due to the continued HVAC issues and condensation throughout the school building. We will not have an E-Learning day and will make up this day at the end of the school year. Our primary focus is ensuring a safe and conducive learning environment for everyone. This has been a difficult decision and one we hoped we didnโ€™t have to make. Unfortunately, our HVAC system has had issues keeping up with the outside conditions over the past three days, and we aim to provide a more favorable environment for effective teaching and learning. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we put student and staff safety first in all of our decisions.
