  • Morton End-of-Year Procedures May 2020

    Hope this message finds you healthy and safe!  We know you’ve been waiting for information on materials return ( textbooks, library books, instruments, Chromebooks, etc.) and retrieval of belongings in lockers.  Good news!  After receiving FCPS COVID-19 Emergency Guidelines for End-of-School Procedures on Friday evening, our next step was to submit a formal plan to our Chief and FCPS Office of Risk Management to review and approve via health department guidelines…and wait for a green light from them before proceeding.  We submitted our plan yesterday morning and it was approved late this afternoon.  Yay!!! 

    Our plan is attached: MMS End of Year Procedures May 2020

    Below is an excerpt from the plan that may be of extra interest. 

    Material Check In-Out Process:

    • Students will return materials (textbooks, library books, instruments, Chromebooks – if they so choose) and pick-up locker contents, if applicable, per the designated drive-thru schedule below according to alpha and grade level.
      • Friday, May 22 – 8th graders
      • Tuesday, May 26 - 7th graders
      • Wednesday, May 27 - 6th graders

  • School Climate Survey

     

    Dear Parents/Guardians:

     

    We want to hear about your experience with your student’s education. We invite you to participate in completing the School Climate Survey. This survey includes questions about your student’s learning, school safety, and interpersonal relationships, as well as your attitudes about the institutional environment and your personal involvement in school. Your responses will be very helpful in improving student relationships, learning conditions, and the overall school environment.

     

    We invite all parents, guardians and caretakers to complete this survey for our school. The survey is completely anonymous and brief; it contains 21 questions and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. You can take the survey online by using the unique school link below. If you cannot access this online survey, please pick up a paper copy in the school office. Please submit your responses by Friday, May 29.

     

    As you respond to each item, think about your own personal experiences as a parent, caregiver or guardian at your student’s school. Please answer all of the questions, or your answers won’t be recorded, but you can mark “I prefer not to answer” if you don’t want to answer a demographic question.

     

    We hope you will take the time to provide us with this valuable information. Our school’s total survey results will be used to inform and develop appropriate strategies, procedures, and/or programs to enhance our school climate.

  • NTI Days Begin April 6th!!! 

     

    As we are approaching April 6, we just wanted to share some important reminders.  Please know that your Morton staff is here for you and is striving to make NTI days a great learning experience,, while at the same time decrease the stress of distance learning. Your teachers will all be available during their office hours to answer any questions you might have about their content. Please reach out to them with your questions. They will love hearing from you!

     

    How will students receive instruction?

    By April 6, teachers will communicate with students as to how lessons will be delivered to them.  Students should check their email and/or the NTI link on the Morton homepage daily to stay aware of expectations. Some teachers have chosen a digital platform such as Google Classroom, enVision, Collections, etc. while other teachers will be emailing lessons to students.  Many parents have stopped by to pick up Chromebooks for use during NTI days.  If you have not been able to check one out as of yet and are interested in doing so, please contact us, and we will do our best to make that option available to you.  For students who do not have digital access, paper packets can be provided for you; just let your Team Leader know.

     

    For any student with a specialized education plan, accommodations and modifications will be implemented.  Teachers and Case Managers will be communicating more individualized information with families.

     

    What if I need technology support?

    We are fortunate that the district is setting up a temporary helpdesk to call for any family needing technical support with a student’s FCPS account or Chromebook.  The Tech Support number is 381-4410.  Someone will be available to talk to you Monday – Friday from 8 am to 8 pm.
