FULL-REMOTE LEARNING TO CONTINUE
JANUARY 19-22, 25-29
We have been monitoring our escalating COVID-19 cases and contacts in our schools, and as of today (Thursday, January 21st) we have 105 teachers and staff and 74 students who need to quarantine or isolate next week. Groton Public Schools will continue in full distance learning next week, 1/25/21 - 1/29/21 due to the inability to provide appropriate staffing for in-person learning and for the safety of our students and staff. I will continue working with Ledge Light Health District and carefully monitor the situation in our schools and community.
Susan L. Austin, Superintendent Groton Public Schools
as covid cases increase and many schools are having increased remote learning days, The staff at Mary Morrisson want to make sure families know that Anjanette Leonard, our Military Family Life Counselor (MFLC) is ready and able to provide video and telehealth services that are part of the MFLC program. Now that we have transitioned to full remote, Anjanette Leonard can continue to support students, parents, and staff via the video or telehealth program. This program also allows Anjie to continue to support students and families who have chosen distance learning as their primary education format.

Mary Morrisson is pleased to have the Military Family Life Counselor Program (MFLC) as a part of the supportive network of services that we provide to the students, parents, families, and staff at Mary Morrisson Elementary. These services are being provided to the District by the Department of Defense Child and Youth Program. The MFLC program began at Mary Morrisson in 2015 and has provided valuable support to our students, families and staff.
The MFLC program places licensed professional counselors in schools to provide confidential situational problem-solving and “walk around” life counseling services to students throughout the school day. The MFLCs are also available as a resource to parents to provide support and answer questions. Please read the attached form for more information on the program.
SBHC Services at Mary Morrisson Fall 2020
The Mary Morrisson School Based Health Center (SBHC) resources are still available to Mary Morrisson Elementary students, including both hybrid and virtual students. If needed, we can assist with school physicals, immunizations, and annual flu vaccinations. We are also happy to help with asthma management as well as select acute visits after assessing for COVID-19 risk.
Individual, group, and family counseling services are additional resources offered through the SBHC.
Following an initial mental health assessment, students will work with a master level clinician on personalized treatment goals and skill building. This service is available to both hybrid and virtual students.
