As of this time Morton only has 7 buses to run our routes. This means that three of the buses will be returning to school to take a second route. Some students may not get home until after 5:00 PM. If you are able you may want to consider having your child be a car rider.
Please be aware that free breakfast and lunch will no longer be available for all students. If you feel you would qualify for free or reduced meals please fill out an application at the start of the school year. It can either be done with a hard copy or at this website:
Meal prices for the 2022-2023 school year are as follows: Breakfast, $1.25, Lunch, $2.50.

Decoding is essential to reading. It allows kids to figure out most words they've heard but have never seen in print, as well as sound out words they're not familiar with. The ability to decode is the foundation upon which all other reading instruction—fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, etc… are built.
