Other family members/friends are not able to attend.

Adult Parent/Guardians will be marked off the roster for both home and away teams 5. Remember to PLEASE Mask Up for the entire event…Social Distancing is an EXPECTATION and will be addressed 6. Schools will send out the FREE live streaming links once we have them so everyone can enjoy the tourney from home
Congratulations to senior Rylee Kleine. Rylee is the 2021 Shelby County Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship recipient.
Good morning, We have made a couple of changes to our attendance policy for all sporting events and other extracurricular activities through January 4th. Please see the changes below. NEW CHANGES: All players/managers/cheerleaders/performers will now receive 2 tickets per participant for each sporting event. They may use these two tickets anyway they choose. (For example, if their dad is unable to attend the event, then they may use that ticket for another adult that does not live in the household). Blended families will still be able to have more than 2 tickets per player. You must continue to contact the athletic department in advance of the game to receive additional tickets. Siblings (school-aged or younger) will NOW be allowed to attend events as long as they are sitting with their family the entire time and are properly supervised. Children will not be able to run around the gym or sit with other families. We hope this will help by allowing additional members to attend if someone from the same household is unable to attend the games. Also, it is our hope this will allow families to not have to worry about finding childcare and it will give their siblings an opportunity the chance to watch the game. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult time. Sincerely, Jeremy Powers Morristown Jr/Sr High School Principal
Good morning, As many of you have heard Shelby County went "Red" yesterday in the latest Coronavirus map from the Indiana Department of Health. As a result, we have had to make some necessary, yet unfortunate changes to our attendance at these events. These guidelines are in effect until at least January 4th. Here are the guidelines for these events and they will be strictly enforced. 1) All players/managers/cheerleaders for events will be allowed 2 parents/guardians to these events. If there is a step-parent situation you must contact the school in advance of the event so we can accommodate all parents/guardians to the event. 2)Students, siblings, grandparents, or other family members are not allowed to attend the events. 3) When you attend the event you will be asked to sign in by your child's name for accurate attendance. 4) Sporting events will have the lower section of the home side used for players/managers/personnel only. All spectators will be asked to sit in the upper bleachers or on the south bleachers on the south side of the gym. 5) Concession stands will be open but will be limited in product available to be sold. 6) Masks are to be worn at all times while inside the building and the gym. I understand this is very disappointing and frustrating for everyone involved. I truly hate this for every person involved in these extracurricular events. In order to help spread the curb of COVID-19, we must take these necessary steps so we can get back to allowing more people at these activities. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding! Sincerely, Jeremy Powers Morristown Jr/Sr High School Principal

Good afternoon, Around 11:55 am today our fire alarm went off in the building. Upon discovery, it was determined there was a server error in our system which caused the fire alarm. All students and staff did a great job of exiting the building, taking attendance, and making sure everyone was accounted for outside. We are working to identify the cause of the fire alarm and if the system should go off again, we have put proper protocols in place in our building. Thank you! Jeremy Powers Morristown Jr/Sr High School Principal
