Keeping Track of How and When School Is Happening

Marie Murphy will continue to utilize a remote schedule upon our return from Winter Break beginning Monday, January 4 through Friday, January 15. This will allow any families that traveled and/or hosted out-of-town family during winter break to quarantine for a safe number of days before returning to school.

Even though your child will be learning remotely, we do ask that if your child is sick and/or experiencing Covid symptoms and will be absent from remote lessons, please call the main office to report the absence. Having this information helps us monitor the health of our school community as well as saves you a phone call from the MM office.

Each grade level's remote schedule is below.

6th Grade Remote Learning Schedule: January 4 - January 15

Upon concluding our remote learning schedule on Friday, January 15, Marie Murphy will return to our hybrid schedule on Tuesday, January 19 (there is no school in observance of MLK Day on Monday, January 18). Families that have opted for their child to be educated remotely will remain remote, just following our traditional hybrid schedule.

There are minor changes to the Monday schedule - we will keep the 8:30 start time, the 30-minute advisory, and the 40-minute lunch that we have utilized since Monday, December 7. Simply put, the Monday schedule that was put in place as part of the remote learning window is better than the Monday schedule we were using in September, October, & November, so we are keeping the better one in place.

Each grade level's hybrid schedule is below.
