The Morristown Elementary Governing Board is beginning the process of finalizing the 2019-2020 school calendar and are considering looking at a four day school week rather than the traditional five day school week. On Wednesday, Feb. 6 a survey was sent out to parents on their One Call Now notification system. This is the first of several surveys to attain feedback on a possible four day school week. When aspects of change occur, it is critical to attain feedback from parents and the community. Other School Districts surrounding Morristown utilize or are considering utilizing a four day week. For more information or to provide feedback, call the school office at (623) 546-5100.
