The most significant factor in predicting whether a child will be successful in his or her educational process is the level of parental involvement of his or her parents.  The A.P. Morris faculty is working hard to improve parental involvement.  Please take a moment to complete our survey and send it back to school with your child.  Thanks

Parents are required to pay for meals served to children if they are not eligible for free or reduced lunch.   Parents/guardians  will not be able to view report cards when fines are attached to students' accounts.   Please consider using the convenience of on-line payments through or send money to the school. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
