In a letter sent to parents, Morris Schools Superintendent Troy Ferguson said the School District provided 145 breakfast and lunches to students across the district on Wednesday, and cared for 11 children of emergency and health care workers. This follows the Governor’s order for districts to continue to provide meals for students free of charge, as well as free childcare for children 12 and under of health and emergency workers.
Ferguson said he expects the numbers of meals served and children receiving free daycare to increase over the next week and beyond if the closure is extended past March 27. The custodial staff along with paraprofessionals have been performing a deep clean of the building. Ferguson said a final decision if the closure continues beyond March 27 will be made later next week, but they are preparing as if it will be extended.
