Literacy Night

Join us for Literacy Night October 3 at 5:00 pm. Our focus will be reading/literacy across the curriculum and how parents can reinforce it at home. This event will be student-led and immersive.

Solar Eclipse Instructions

If parents want to keep students at home on Monday, we will deem it as an educational day, and it will not be counted against the student.  

Because the health and safety of our students is Marshall County School’s number one priority, we are only allowing students to view the eclipse via television or live stream. There are serious risks associated with viewing the eclipse without proper eye coverings or improper use of eye coverings. Eye damage can occur in less than 30 seconds.  We want students to experience this educational opportunity, but we want it to be in a safe manner.

We will have no outdoor activity (recess, ball practice, etc.) between 11:56 a.m. and 2:55 p.m.

If students must walk between buildings, they should be directed to go as quickly as possible and they should be instructed not to look directly at the sun.

If parents wish to keep their students home on Monday, the school district will deem this as an educational day, and it will not be counted against the student.

The following link provides multiple opportunities for live streaming the eclipse from different locations across the country, as well as many other resources.
