If school districts thought last year’s academic year was tough, which saw 14 days of school closure due to inclement weather, Morris Schools Superintendent Troy Ferguson said this year takes the cake.
“Inclement weather days, snow days, are a stressful thing, but they aren’t anything compared to what COVID-19 has thrown at us. This is one for the books,” said Ferguson. “None of us will forget this. There’s not a playbook to follow. It’s being designed as we go through the process.”
Ferguson praised the Morris staff and faculty for how they have handled the emergency measures to date, and said he appreciates how supportive the community has been.
