The Marshall Public Schools have decided to make changes to their current learning models beginning next week. There will now be no school on Wednesday, Novembver 25th and full distance learning for all students will begin on Monday November 30th. As of now, a return to the hybrid model for Early Childhood, Park Side, West Side and MATEC is scheduled for December 7th and for the Marshall High School and Marshall Middle School on January 11th. Below is the information released to families in the Marshall district.
Hello Marshall Public Schools Families,
First, we’d like to thank our students and families for their commitment during this time of distance learning. You continue to show your Tiger Pride during this difficult time, and we are proud of you.
We are contacting you today to provide an update on the district’s learning model. As you are aware, the community, county and state COVID numbers are continuing to rise at a rapid rate. We have experienced a high number of staff absences for a variety of reasons. Because of this, the data does not support returning to school in the hybrid learning model and we feel it is safest to extend the distance learning for students and staff at this time. We are planning on a phased-in approach to our return to the school buildings, which will mean fewer staff working face-to-face with students, and a lower potential for subs needed. Please see the below information on calendar adjustments and the tentative return to school dates.
Important Items to Note:
In order to comply with the Governor’s Executive order 20-94, the district will be making some adjustments to the learning calendar over the next several months. There will be NO SCHOOL on Wednesday, November 25th. Again, no classes will be held on Wednesday, November 25th.
The tentative plan for students to return to school in the hybrid model will be as follows:
Early Childhood, Park Side, West Side and MATEC: Monday, December 7, 2020
Marshall High School and Marshall Middle School: Monday, January 11, 2021
Our goal remains to operate in the least-restrictive learning model we feel we can safely use. As we have visited with local Public Health, we together encourage families to take extra precautions during this time, including limiting your exposure to other households, wearing a mask and maintaining a distance of at least 6’ from others when in public, and staying home when ill. Please remain vigilant through the holidays. Making the right decisions now will help reduce the heartache in our community and will help us return to hybrid instruction soon. We know this isn’t the information that many of our families and students wanted to hear, but it is what is best for students and staff at this time.
Thank you to for your continued support. Together we will get through this.
