Message from the Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,


It is with great excitement that I begin my tenure as the Principal of Robert Morris Elementary School! We have some very exciting initiatives that are ongoing and will be implementing throughout the year. Those initiatives include, but are not limited to:

- Re-opening our library;

- Continuation of Restorative Practices and Positive Behavior Initiatives;

- Continuation of our socialized recess program with Playworks;

- Alignment of our academic courses with PA Core Curriculum; and

- Continuation and inclusion of our many partnerships with community organizations.


School begins Monday, September 8 at 8:30 A.M. for grades 1 through 8.

All grades will assemble on the first day in the schoolyard on Taney Street. Uniforms are required to be worn each day of school, including the first day.  


School begins Monday, September 15 at 8:30 A.M. for Kindergarten.

All Kindergarten students will meet their teachers at the Main Entrance at 26th and Thompson Streets on that day only. Uniforms are required to be worn each day of school, including the first day.  


Please join us on Thursday, September 18 at 7:00 P.M. for our Back to School Night.


The information included in this handbook is intended to provide you with some base expectations and guidance for Morris students and their families.
