MORRISTOWN, NJ - Schools have not been officially closed for the year, but Governor Murphy yesterday said, "We are not going to open our schools back up until we are convinced by scientists and medical professionals that doing so would be safe for students and staff – and their families. I will not rush this. I cannot".
Will students go back? No one knows for sure. But the regardless of whether kids are in school or not, the Morris Educational Foundation believes that students in the Class of 2020, seniors and eighth graders, deserve recognition for the "commitment, persistence and resilience during this challenging year."
To celebrate these students' achievements, the Morris Educational Foundation (MEF) will be gifting Morristown High School and Frelinghuysen Middle School graduates with a Senior Sign at no cost to those families.
“The Morris Educational Foundation is proud to continue the tradition of Senior Signs for our graduating seniors and 8th-graders in the Morris School District,” said Patty Haralampoudis, Chairperson of the Morris Educational Foundation. “We realize that celebrations this year may change or be limited, so we thought it was important for families to be able to celebrate their student’s success now more than ever. In our commitment to serve every student in all schools in the Morris School District, we are working closely with administration to identify their most urgent emerging needs and will soon seek community funding support for this and other important initiatives.”
To honor these students while observing social distancing guidelines, the Senior Signs will be delivered to graduates’ lawns via no-contact the weekend of May 15. Families interested in celebrating a graduate with a Senior Sign can register by clicking here.
