I encourage everyone to continue referring to our teacher webpages for updates regarding homework, projects and upcoming classroom and grade level events. Simply log onto our district website, www.morrisplainsschooldistrict.org, then click the school tab and select Borough. Next, click the Faculty tab, and select the staff member of your choice. The page will open for that teacher and his/her classroom information is listed on the left. Also,please refer to our quick links section for the latest news and event information.
In coordination with, and as recommended by the Morris Plains Police Department, all doors will be locked and remained locked during the school day and after school.
* Doors and entrances to the school will be supervised by school personnel beginning at 7:30 a.m. (front office), and rear entrances for student access at 7:55 a.m.
* Special programs and extra help sessions with teachers are to be scheduled ahead of time. Students will be directed to enter the building at either the front or rear entrance (near gym lobby), if it is before 7:55 a.m.
* We are requesting that all families make an effort to drop off students between 7:55 and 8:03 a.m. In the event that students arrive before 7:55 a.m., they will have to wait outside, until staff supervisors and assistants are available to monitor. During cold and inclement weather, please make sure that students have proper clothing if they need to wait outside until school entrances are opened.
* The gym lobby entrance will be the only access to after school games and competitions held in the gym. The other areas of the school will be blocked off by security gates.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation, support and attention to these new procedures.
