I am delighted to announce the results of the Morris School Assistant Principal Search: Ms. Holly Soules is scheduled to join the Morris School Family on July 1st as Asst. Principal. Ms. Soules is no stranger to Morris; her children are alumni. Ms. Soules comes to Morris as a school administrator from a neighboring school district. The plan is to prepare Ms. Soules for assuming the principalship of the Morris School over the next 3 years . In year 4 (2027-2028 ), when Principal Kelley becomes the full-time Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment Director for preK-grade 12, Ms. Soules should make a seamless transition to lead Morris already knowing the students, families, staff, culture, programs, and budget well. Please join me in welcoming Holly Soules to the Lenox School Community!

Student/Parent Reunification Preparedness Underway at LPS - Last Thursday, the Morris School, Lenox Police and Fire Departments, held a reunification drill. All students were relocated off campus and a small group of parents volunteered to come to the relocation site to test parent-student reunification procedures. While a reunification is statistically unlikely to occur, having a well thought out reunification plan will avoid a chaotic scene should a relocation event actually arise. Yesterday, Trooper Guilbault, our State Police School Liaison, led a reunification training for LMMHS staff. Both Chief O’Briens and SRO Colvin participated.
