Summer Break!



Dear Morton Families,


It's now officially summer break! It has been an incredible school year and I couldn't be more proud of the students, staff, parents, and community members. We were able to create so many memorable moments throughout the school year and without a doubt, our students experienced a great deal of growth. I am looking forward to summer as a time to slow down, refresh, and plan for the upcoming school year. I wish you all a wonderful summer break and look forward to seeing you in August as we begin the 21-22 school year.


Please note that our school will be closed, beginning May 25th, for summer projects. We anticipate project completion on July 31st. We look forward to significant renovations that will benefit our students, staff, and community members. We will communicate plans for summer library in the coming days.
