Today, our superintendent announced that Atlanta Public Schools will remain in virtual learning through January 15, 2021.  Superintendent Blog  Our school will remain virtual due to rising cases of COVID-19.  I know that some of you are disappointed and I am too.  While I was so excited at the prospect of students returning to Morningside, I am not a health expert and have never been a principal nor even lived during a pandemic!  None of us have.  I support this decision, and here is what I can assure you - I just know in my heart that kids are coming back to our school.  They will walk our halls, learn in our classrooms, play on our new playground.  It is going to happen.  I can see it, feel it, I even dream about it!  I will spend these next weeks re-focusing on our student experience in the virtual program, while at the same time continuing the preparations for re-opening our school.  

Going forward, Wednesdays will return back to synchronous - live teaching, per our regular schedule prior to this past week.  Our schedule will not change - we will continue on with our current schedule, the school day hours as we have known them during the first 9 weeks.  Please see the Grady Cluster Principal Letter from our team of principals.  We are united in support of children and families and will work together as a team for all the students in the Grady Cluster.
