MARSHALL (KMHL) – Parents now have the certainty they were looking for, as the Marshall School District will begin the 2020-21 school year in a hybrid model.

The decision, by the school board, will allow the district to offer additional safety protocols that it would not have been able to maintain if they had opened in a face-to-face model.

Under the hybrid plan, students in Kindergarten through 4th grade will attend school four days a week, on a rotating basis, while secondary students will attend school three days a week.

Superintendent Jeremy Williams said families with more than one student, will be able to have their kids on a similar schedule.

The school calendar for the 2020-21 school year will remain unchanged.
