Marshall Elementary E-News

May 22, 2020


School News and Information

We made it.  Thank you to the parents, students, Marshall staff and our district support team.    This has been an extremely challenging time for everyone.  I was amazed with everyone’s determination, perseverance and thinking outside of the box.  It is not the way we wanted to end the school year, but we made it.  Thank you to everyone!  Have a great summer!

TSD Fabric Masks Project from Holli Morrish:

We are looking for volunteers that like to sew!


Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic many of you have reached out to TSD and other district officials asking how you can help!  Thank you for being amazing and caring so much for the students and families in our community!  As our school leaders plan and prepare for next school year, there are many unknowns.  We listen each day when Governor DeWine gives his press conference waiting for any insight as to what the future holds.  State and local officials have advised that we must prepare from several different possible school scenarios, including that students and school personnel might be required to wear masks to school.  Knowing that this is possible, we are launching a program that allows the community to help us in meeting our goals for the number of masks needed for every student and staff member.  Our goal is to have 2 for each person, so that while one mask is being cleaned, each person has another mask they can wear.  I have estimated that the district needs nearly 7000 masks.  Approximately 3000 youth masks, and 3800 adult masks.


We are asking our community to help us in sewing cloth masks and we will be collecting them throughout the summer at the Talawanda Board of Education.  We will begin collecting weekdays beginning May 18th between 9am-3pm.


Thank you!

TSD Cloth Mask Project Information Flyer


From Our School Nurse:

Mrs. Johnson shared the following information from the American Academy of Pediatrics regarding children and wearing masks.


Kindergarten Registration

We started collecting information about Kindergarten for next year before the school closings.  If we have not taken your information yet and you have a child who will turn 5 before August 1, please complete this form and we will email you further directions for registering your child for kindergarten.  


From the Transportation Department

This is a reminder that a new Transportation Request Form for each school year.  The form can be downloaded from the Talawanda Website for each child so that we can make sure that we have the most current contact information.  Please email the forms to the transportation department.  Please remember that babysitting arrangements need to be filled out on the Transportation Form as well because it doesn’t always carry over from year to year.  Thanks for thinking ahead to next year.
