Marshall Schools Students & Parents,
Here are a few updates as we enter Restore Illinois Phase 4 regarding ISBE Guidance for the 20-21 School Year, Status of IHSA Summer Workouts, Summer Meals Updates, and a few other Frequently Asked Questions.
2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR
Here is the link to the ISBE Guidance Document that we are working through to get a plan as quick as possible. Know as you read this, much of this can change before the start of school.
Communication & WMMC Interview
In addition to using the App, Website, and Email to communicate, Joey O. has agreed to do regular updates with Mr. Ross on WMMC. If you missed the first update from Thursday, June 25, here is the link (if you have difficulty opening, this may play best from a desktop computer)…
We will be sending out a survey for parent input next week.
Online Registration for the 2020-21 School Year will be available in late July like last summer. In person Registration day is scheduled for Wednesday, August 5.
Health Requirements for Registration & Summer Physicals for School & Athletics
The first day of school for students for the 2020-21 School Year is planned for Tuesday, August 18. With the ISBE Guidance and the recent addition of Election Day, November 3, being a state holiday where schools must be closed, the full school calendar will be released as soon as possible.
July Meal Information & Thank Yous
Marshall Schools Tuesday & Thursday Meal Service will be off during the month of July.
MAYN will continue Meal Service on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, at the Marshall Baptist Church Parking Lot, from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m.
Huge thanks to …
-Teresa Wright and her kitchen staff for all of their work in serving meals during the school shutdown and during June
-To the bus drivers, aides, Kevin Keown, Julie Bender, Ryan Arthur, Heidi Dahnke, and volunteers for their meal delivery during the shut down
-To Kelly Lindley & Crew, MAYN, and any other organizations and volunteers that have worked so hard to provide meals
Summer Workouts for High School & Junior High Athletes
We continue to be in IHSA Stage 1 Guidance for HS summer workouts until further notice. Stage 2 Guidance has yet to be approved by the ISBE & IDPH.
Workouts for JH Athletes are still on hold with a hope to begin those in some form after June 26 (1st Date that our Region could move to Phase 4 of the Illinois Restore Plan).
Despite the move to Phase 4 and the restrictions being lessened for youth sports under IDPH & DCEO Phase 4 rules. Our Athletic Facilities, unfortunately remain closed with the exception of use for the IHSA Stage 1 allowed workouts outlined previously. As soon as we can ease these restrictions for our students and the community, we will.
The Track is under renovation.
More updates and information will be shared as we learn more.
Continued thanks for your patience, best wishes, and stay safe.
