Marshall Schools Community,
As I did, entering week 2 of the school year, I want to update you post Labor Day regarding CoVid & Quarantine Numbers.
We currently have 19 students out at this time due to CoVid and 53 out due to Quarantine. We currently have 1 staff member out due to CoVid. To this point we have had 40 students total miss time due to CoVid and 108 miss time due to quarantine. We have had 2 staff miss time due to CoVid and 3 miss time due to quarantine. Cases primarily continue be due to exposure outside of school, but we have had 1 case at South Elementary School determined to be due to exposure at school.
As has been the case throughout, mitigations such as masking indoors, enhanced cleaning of spaces, and social distancing are in place with the goal of keeping the spread of CoVid and the need to quarantine to a minimum. We continue to work with the Clark County Health Department on contact tracing and quarantine. Students and staff that maintain at least 3 ft social distance and who are masked will not have to quarantine in most cases. Also, vaccinated students and staff will not have to quarantine in many cases through a CoVid Test to stay program.
We do continue to ask parents, students, and staff to err on the side of caution if in doubt about sending your student to school or coming to school with symptoms or of ill. Please contact our school nurses or your health care professional if there is a question. As we did last year, we have optional CoVid testing available for staff and students with symptoms.
We continue to do our best to keep students and staff in school on a daily basis, and thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
