While students will have had a full two weeks of a break by the end of this week, Morris Schools Superintendent Troy Ferguson told the KMRS Community Connection that the school year will not have to be extended for that reason.
“So the guidance that we received in our daily conference call, superintendents with the Commissioner of Education and with others, is that yes, these two weeks of planning will count,” said Ferguson. “And so, students don’t have to make up that time.”
While the official word has not been given yet, Ferguson said faculty and staff have been busy making plans for distance learning for the foreseeable future. All spring activities are on hold, and even commencement exercises remain a question mark.
