Dear EMS Parents,
It is a blessing to have students back to school. All the work of preparing for a new year suddenly turns to joy when students again fill the classrooms, hallways, and playgrounds. While education looks very different in much of the world today, we rejoice that we can hold face to face classes to begin our year.
At this point, Morrison will continue with normal beginning of the year events with slight modifications for the safety of our community. This year’s Meet-the-Teacher event will be a little different, but it will retain many similarities. This year we will host our Meet-the-Teacher Day which begins 30 minutes after the end of school at 4:00 pm on September 3. While middle-school teachers meet with parents to overview the year ahead, K-5 students will lead their parents on a tour of their classrooms and specials. After-school classes and sports will be canceled that day. Childcare will be provided throughout the afternoon, so younger siblings are welcome to attend with parents.
An afternoon event will provide an earlier evening for families since Meet-the-Teacher falls on a Thursday with a half day of school on Friday. More information will come soon about safety precautions for this event. I look forward to seeing you!
YEARBOOK PHOTOS & ANNUAL HEALTH SCREENINGS 年刊照相＆年度健康檢查
Just a reminder that your child will have his/her yearbook photo taken on either Monday (8/31) or Tuesday (9/1). If you have a K5 child, please see the chart below to see which day your child will have his/her photo taken.Middle school students with Chinese A will have their photos taken on Monday; students with Chinese B will have their photos taken on Tuesday.
Please also note that the clinic will be doing their annual health screenings in conjunction with yearbook picture days. They will be taking students’ height and weight on either Monday (8/31) or Tuesday (9/1), depending on their scheduled picture day. EMS students in K, 2nd, 5th and 8th grades will also receive a routine vision screening in accordance with the vision screening policy. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
WEEKLY CHAPELS 每週崇拜時間
Students in grades K-5 will have weekly chapels on Tuesdays at 8:10am, either in the auditorium or in Commons.

CHILD SAFETY TRAINING (CSPN) 兒童安全培訓
As stated in Morrison Policies and Procedures, Morrison requires that substitutes, teacher aides, parent volunteers and coaches get a background check (once) and complete a Child Safety training (annually). If you are planning to be a parent volunteer this year, please visit our website and complete 1 of the 5 courses. Once a course is completed, you will be entered into our database as an approved volunteer for the year.
You may find the CSPN videos at this link:
如馬禮遜政策與程序所述，馬禮遜要求代課教師，教師助手，家長志工和教練進行背景調查（一次性）並完成（每年一次）兒童安全培訓。 如果您打算今年成為家長志工，請至我們的網站並完成5門課程中的其中1門。 課程完成後，我們會將您入檔，您將成為今年的認可志工人員。
