Homecoming 2020 set to begin


Morton ISD will host Homecoming 2020 the week of September 21 – September 25.

The Student Council from the Secondary campus has been working on details for the past week.  The restrictions imposed by COVID-19 have created some challenges for the Student Council and the Class of 2021 in preparing for a memorable event.

The theme for this year’s Homecoming is “Back to the 80s”.

Students will be decorating select businesses in town to honor their class.

Due to COVID restrictions, all events will require the use of social distancing and face masks, other than for photos.
