  11. Citizenship Logs • Students are responsible for completing their own citizenship log (homework, collecting parent signatures, etc). • Students have time at the beginning of the week to write their homework on their calendar. • It is recommended that parents check ALL homework nightly.

  14. Ways Parents Can Help • Be sure your child gets enough sleep each night. • A good breakfast helps to get the day off right. • Help your child to get to school on time. • Check dates on library books. • Send a note if your child needs to be excused from P.E. • Ask your child what they did in school each day.

  15. Building Positive Relationships: Principal’s Message • At Morris, we strive for parent involvement, parent-teacher communication, and positive relationships. Please remember the following: • All parents and teachers want the same thing: student success. Go to your child’s teacher immediately if you ever have a question/concern. Please support the teachers and supervisors at Morris. If you disagree with us, please talk to us privately and not in front of your child. • Please limit gossip/adult conversations, cell phone use, and classroom disruptions while you are volunteering on campus. Be sure to sign in and out each time you volunteer. • Please know that we are making instructional shifts that will increase academic rigor, critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration in the classroom. Homework and class work may look different than “traditional” assignments. We will be hosting information sessions throughout the year to discuss Common Core topics as we make this transition.

  16. Updated Morris Procedures: Handbook Highlights • 7:45am: Students must not arrive to campus before 7:45 unless they are eating breakfast. Supervision begins on the blacktop at 7:45am. • Classrooms will not be disrupted during instruction. • If you plan to drop off lunch on days when he/she forgets lunch, be sure your child knows to check the “lunch table” in the main office on the way to lunch. We are not responsible for lunches that do not get picked up by students. Our cafeteria will feed kids who do not have food. • Please do not call the office to deliver messages to your child. Emergency messages about afternoon pick-up/directions for where your child should go are for special circumstances and should not be a regular occurrence. Be sure your child knows where to go after school.

  17. Handbook Highlights: Continued Absences: Be sure to call the attendance line if your child is absent. Any absences not called in are considered unexcused. Please do not plan to pull your child out of school between 2:15 and 2:30. It is difficult and disruptive to call students out so close to the end of the school day. If you have a special circumstance, it must be prearranged with the teacher so homework can be prepared and distributed in advance and so the teacher knows to send the student to the office. Dress Code: Visible jewelry (except for medical alert jewelry and earrings smaller than a dime), sandals, and hats are not allowed at school. If you would like an exception for a sun protection hat, contact Principal Hernandez. The hat must have a brim all the way around.

  18. Handbook Highlights: Continued Cell Phones: We are not responsible for cell phones and prefer they are left at home. If a student takes out a cell phone at any time while on campus, it will be confiscated and returned only to the parent/guardian. Birthdays: Due to an increase in food allergies and nutrition laws for public schools, we will not allow parents to bring cupcakes/cakes/food to school for birthday celebration. You must prearrange any birthday celebration with the classroom teacher. We encourage non-food items such as books, stickers, or pencils. The office will not accept food items such as cupcakes or donuts that are dropped off. We thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students safe.
