We operate an excellent nutrition program at each campus. Our cafeterias serve breakfast and lunch every school day, and because of a special grant, all students receive one free breakfast and one free lunch every day. Visit our Food Services page for more information.
We are pleased to provide our students with safe, reliable transportation to and from school each day. We consider bus riding a privilege and expect all students to adhere to the rules for their own safety as well as for the safety of others. For information on bus policies, please visit our district Transportation page.

If your child must miss school, please call the school office on the day of his/her absence. In accordance with state law, our school staff will call parents/guardians at home when their child is absent. In addition, students must return to school with a parental note of excuse when they have been absent. If you have questions about attendance requirements here at Morristown Elementary School, please contact our school office.
We expect our students to dress in an appropriate manner at all times. Student dress may not present a health or a safety hazard, violate municipal, county, or state law, or present a potential disruption of the educational process. Please contact us for a detailed description of our dress code standards.
We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTSA at your school and make your voice heard!
Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including the following:
- Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep
- Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
- Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
- Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
