Marshall Elementary Weekly E-News

November 12, 2021


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

It’s Friday and what a great week of weather we have had.  We also want to thank all of our families that sent in pictures and names for our Wall of Heroes for Veterans Day.  It was a wonderful display and tribute for our school community.  


We have started to see an uptick in the number of students testing positive for Covid19, especially in some of our 3rd grade classrooms.  We continue to notify families if a student is considered a close contact and provide the directions from the health department.  Given the number of cases in some of the 3rd grade classrooms and to control any potential spread, we instituted the play zones at recess to separate classes in 3rd grade. This will continue through next week.  We hope this will help.  


Vaccination Clinic Information from Butler County

Please read the attached information about clinics coming up in our area.   


Drop off and Pick Up Reminders

We have seen an increase in the number of cars dropping off and picking up students.  Please pull forward and fill in all available space in the line so that we can keep the line as short as possible and keep the line moving.  Please make sure you have your name sign displayed so we can easily enter the names for the correct pick up order.  Thank you for your help.  

Cooler Weather

As the weather is turning cooler, please remember to send your child dressed to go outside at recess.  This means jackets, coats, hats, and gloves.  In general, we go outside for recess unless the temperature/wind chill drops below 25 degrees. Please label coats & hats with your student’s name. Thank you.  


Covid-19 Protocols 

Talawanda recently received the updated recommendations regarding Covid-19 protocols from the Ohio Department of Health.  These recommendations seem to provide some additional ways in which to provide in-person learning in public schools in Ohio for students that may have been exposed to Covid-19 in our schools, while still taking precautions to keep students and staff at low risk of exposure to the Covid-19 virus.  Students will be permitted to eat together during breakfast and lunch sessions, but masks will still be required immediately before and after eating.  We will continue to monitor Covid-19 risks/exposures/cases, and should the number of cases increase these recommendations may change. We will continue to monitor person-to-person direct contact to reduce the risk of exposure.  It is the goal of everyone to keep students and staff healthy.  The recommendations provide ways for exposed students to stay in school/school classrooms if specific guidelines are met, and to allow students that have been exposed but do not show symptoms to stay in extra-curricular if they adhere to the recommended testing protocols.  Covid-19 tests must be proctored tests or done in a medical facility, pharmacy, or physician's office.


Please remember that the CDC has a federal mask mandate in place for school buses, the city of Oxford has a city-wide mask ordinance in place, and the TSD Board of Education requires masks to be worn inside TSD facilities.  


Thank you for your continued understanding and support as we all work to best manage school issues related to the pandemic.  We continue to be in near-constant communication with the Butler County Health Department and will continue to follow their direction as our local county health authority.  We will notify school personnel and families as soon as possible should there be any changes to Covid-19 information and protocols.

Learn to Skate

Thanksgiving Open Skating


Goggin Ice Center has a busy fall planned for the kiddos of our community. Every Sunday starting in November, we are highlighting a different elementary school to invite to Goggin for a free Sunday public skating day. Admission is free, just charging skate rental. and all the skaters have to do is say that they attend the selected school. It's easy, and hopefully, a great opportunity for skaters to try out our sport!
