The Morris School District’s first COVID-19 shutdown of the semester will close in-person classes, and sports and other extracurricular activities, at Morristown High until Nov. 22, 2021.
At least 10 cases have been reported in the school community, prompting closure at the direction of local health officials, Principal Mark Manning said in a message to parents on Thursday afternoon.
Students will be expected to log into virtual classes, Manning said.
The shutdown sounds like bad news for the MHS theatrical production of “Harvey,” which was scheduled for Nov. 19-21.
All sports and after-school events are suspended, according to the principal’s message.
