School Visitation

Families are invited and encouraged to visit Morton Elementary School. Teachers must be notified 24 hours in advance so that instruction is not interrupted by unannounced visits. For the safety of our students, we require that all visitors get a pass from the office before proceeding to the classroom or any other area of the school. A Criminal Background check must be filled out and approved before participating in side-by-sides, field trips, volunteering in the classroom and lunch visitations.

School Volunteers

The School City of Hammond has outlined a procedure for all school volunteers to complete background checks before supervising students. Any Morton Elementary School volunteer/chaperone must complete and have on file the appropriate paperwork before being allowed to supervise students. If you think you will be coming into school to volunteer or chaperone at all during the school year, please fill out the background check at the beginning of the school year. It usually takes at least two weeks to be processed and you will not be allowed to volunteer until it is returned to us from the state.
