Good morning Morse community, as we enter this temporary shutdown to in-person learning at Morse, I want to remind all students and parents that Morse classes are being held at their regularly scheduled times. Students should log into Brightspace to access the link to the virtual class and the assignments. Attendance will be taken. If you are unable to access the internet during class time, please reach out to your teacher. Anyone who would like school lunch during the shutdown can come to Morse and get a bagged lunch for pickup. Just come to the front door and we will bring one out for you. Pickup times are from 10:00 to 1:00 daily. Lunches are free of charge. Thank you, Eric Varney, Principal

We know how much our Alumni cares for this special building that has housed generations of students for many years. We won't be organizing anything this week as it is crazy busy around here with moving but there may be potential for walk-thrus in the coming weeks. We will also be having a yard sale eventually. We will keep you posted!
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.
