Morton Weekly Update December 16, 2019

Good Evening Morton Families,

We hope everyone is enjoying the day and ready for a great week! Here are the updates and reminders for this week:

  • Masshealth/Medicaid forms were distributed before Thanksgiving and we would like to have one returned for EVERY SINGLE STUDENT. We would appreciate it if you could return them as soon as possible. If your child has lost theirs then they can tell their homeroom teacher. Completing the form comes with no cost to you, it will just provide additional funding for the District and school. 
  • If you would like to receive additional updates regarding Morton go to the PTO Facebook page
  • Academic Progress Reports will be going home on Tuesday. In addition to the progress report, there will be a notice concerning new immunization requirements established by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. All incoming 7th grade students must be in compliance in order to attend the first day of school as a 7th grader next year. Please contact the school nurse with any questions. The only students receiving this notice will be grade 6 students.
