Hurricane Watch


Welcome back to the Hurricane Watch where we pride ourselves on keeping the Mo’East Family up to date on important events and news here at Morristown Hamblen East High School.

As Thanksgiving Break quickly approaches, we would like to remind parents and students that Distance Learning the week after Thanksgiving break is highly recommended to ensure the safety of students and staff.

We encourage everyone to remain safe during the break and enjoy the time with family. After the break, school will resume normally.

We will be having a senior retake day on December 2, 2020 at Morristown East High for any seniors who missed their appointment or who need to retake pictures. Please be sure to sign up for a time to take your senior pictures with Mrs. McClellan as soon as possible. Tux/Drape attire will be available. Please remember to bring a spaghetti strap tank top for the drape picture or a clean white t-shirt for the tux picture. THIS WILL NOT BE A FULL SESSION and is the last opportunity for seniors who have yet to take their senior pictures.

Senior pictures are used for the yearbook as well as the graduation ceremony, so it is very important that every senior has their session completed.

Junior and senior parents, Project Graduation Hamblen County is looking for parents to help plan this important milestone for the 2021 Senior class. Project Graduation is a free event that includes a night of music, games, food, fun, and memories to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances of the pandemic, Project Graduation was cancelled last year. As of right now, Project Graduation is scheduled for June 4, 2021 after the second graduation. Forms for parent volunteers are available in the East High Counseling Office.

As the 1st nine weeks have come to a close, there are a few details to keep in mind. This year report cards will not be printed out in mass, grades are available for parents and guardians on Parent Portal. Grade cards will be printed out for anyone who requests a physical copy. To request a printed report card, you may email Mrs. Vesser at or call the main office and speak to Mrs. Vesser. Requested grade cards may be picked up the following business day.

Students who are distance learning and did not maintain a “C” average (2.0 GPA) for the first 9 weeks, your parent or guardian will be receiving a letter or call about your students progress and how the school may help. Students who did not maintain a “C” average may be asked to return to in person school to bring grades up. For further questions about grade averages for distance learners, contact guidance.

The Morristown East FFA Club is selling Poinsettia flowers in colors red, white, and pink.

The Poinsettia flowers will come with a 7 ½ inch pot with pot cover $13.00 each, 10 inch pots with pot covers are offered for $22.00 each, in red only. See an FFA member or contact Mrs. Overbay to place an order.

Jostens will be at Morristown East on Thursday, December 10th during all student lunch periods to deliver class rings and accept Senior graduation item orders. Students who ordered class rings need to make sure that your balance is paid in full in order to receive your ring. Seniors need to order caps and gowns as soon as possible. Those who wait and order after December will pay the increased value. Place your orders now to get your cap and gown at the lower price. For further questions, please contact Tina Parker in bookkeeping.
