Welcome to the last day of in-person instruction at 826 High Street! Students were encouraged this morning to take a moment to appreciate being the last students to receive instruction at Morse High School's old home. Reminder to students in cohort B: there will be no in-person instruction tomorrow as the Morse staff completes the packing of the old school. Your teachers will communicate at-home expectations for tomorrow through Brightspace. Likewise, there will be no in-person instruction on the first three days following February break (2/22 - 2/24) while the Morse staff prepares the building to hold school. Teachers will post your at-home expectations for learning on those days to Brightspace. Students who would like to have a tour of the new school before their first day are welcome to sign up for one at bit.ly/morsetours. If you would like to just see a map of the new school to see where your classes are located (https://bit.ly/3cZ8ULr). I can't wait to welcome students to our new home at 826 Shipbuilder Drive on February 25 & 26. Have a great February vacation, Mr. Varney.
