Marshall Elementary Weekly E-News

October 30, 2020


A Peaceful, Productive, Healthy, and Happy Community

The mission of Marshall Elementary is to work as a community to achieve higher levels of thinking and learning by empowering every learner everyday.


School News and Information

Another week in the books for our face to face and remote learners.  It sounds like it was another great week in all of our classrooms.  Thank you to all of the students, teachers and parents for another successful week.  Today we held our traditional Halloween festivities but obviously in a new way.  You can check out our Halloween “Parade”!  


Please remember that there is no school for face to face or remote students on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.  The schools are used for voting and this is a district wide professional development day for the staff. 


We will continue to remind students to wear their mask, covering their mouth and nose.  Remember if the mask is a little too big you can tie a knot in the ear loops so it fits a little better and stays up.  In addition, we will continue to remind students to use good hand hygiene and to keep their hands away from their face.  We worked on social distancing and how to create space in the classroom and hallway.   

Elementary Lunch Menu- Updated for November


Don’t forget to send a water bottle with your child to school.  They can be refilled at the sinks in the classrooms.


As temperatures get cooler and students wear hats, gloves, jackets and coats please make sure you put your child’s name in their items.  This will help if the item is left outside at recess or on a bus.


If you need assistance with hats, gloves, coats or other items please contact Mr. Hinton or Mrs. Rolfes


Thank you to all our families who participate in the Marshall PTG Flower Sale.  We appreciate your support of all our students. 


Important safety message from Mr. Hinton - Help us remain open. 


Important Reminder for All TSD Parents:

Talawanda School District needs your partnership in keeping our students, staff, and families safe during the pandemic we are experiencing.  It's critical that parents do a wellness check on each child every day before school.  If your child exhibits any symptoms for COVID-19, please keep your child and their siblings home from school until you have an alternative diagnosis or negative test result.  See the checklist below.


People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of reported symptoms – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to SARS-CoV-2. Symptoms can include:


Fever or chills


Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing


Muscle or body aches


New loss of taste or smell

Sore throat

Congestion or runny nose

Nausea or vomiting


Symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19)


TSD is working on additional ways to report your child's illness/absence  to school.  Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.



We understand that families may be traveling during the holiday season.  The Ohio Health Department & the Butler County Health Department recommend that people self quarantine for 14 days upon returning from a state that is listed as a hotspot for Covid-19.  A hotspot is a state that is reporting positive Covid-19 rates of 15% or higher.  Please see the link to the map, as the states listed can change.

Arrival and Dismissal

Thank you for your patience at dismissal.  I think we have the process as smooth as it can be.  Please note that students will not come out to cars until at least 4:00.  Please note that if you arrive prior to 4:05 and the line is already backed up to Route 27, you will be directed to keep driving and circle back around to school.  Students should be able to easily enter the car on the passenger side and if you need more time to buckle up, please pull forward to the playground area.  


If you did not receive a name card with your child’s name on it for vehicle dismissal, please let us know.  Please keep the card displayed in the passenger side front window.  This will help our dismissal staff with organizing the students.   Please know that if you are picking up after school, there may be a delay.  

Mrs. Schwegman and Mrs. Rolfes Information

Mrs. Schwegman, School Counselor,  and Mrs. Rolfes, School Social Worker would like to remind both face to face and remote parents that they are here to help.  Please contact them - or

Destination Imagination Informational Meeting Announcement:

Talawanda's Destination Imagination program is a great way to get your student involved in a STEAM (STEM + Art!) activity even among the chaos of COVID-19! It is a team based challenge program that requires creativity and teamwork. Teams can choose to solve one of six challenges in the areas of science, technology, fine arts, improv, outreach, and engineering - or teams of K-2nd grade kids can do the early learning challenge. This year's program is designed with virtual teamwork and social distancing in mind. Use your imagination to solve these problems, make a video of your solution to be appraised at the tournaments in the spring.


There is a $55 fee to compete on a Destination Imagination team (team manager children's fees will be waived and need based scholarships are available).


The Information meeting will take place via Zoom on Thursday, November 5th from 6-7pm.  To receive details of the zoom, complete this sign-up sheet, email Bob Black at, or text 513-280-3061:
