Spring Break Extended

The Marshall County School District will now extend Spring Break and not be in session the week of March 16-20.

Coronavirus Latest:

The Marshall County School District will be extending Spring Break, and schools will not reopen until Wednesday, March 18. During this time all schools will be closed and all school-related activities will be postponed. A decision will be made Tuesday night whether or not further delays need to occur. MCSD is monitoring all MDE and Medical updates as we determine what is the best course of action for the safety of all of all students, faculty, and staff. ~Superintendent Roy Lawson

COVID-19 Update

Due to positive confirmation in MS for COVID-19 (coronavirus), Marshall County School District will not allow field trips to in-state conventions or out-of-state events until further notice. We will send our action plan for our district to faculty and parents next week. This is a precautionary measure. Other activities will continue as normal. As always, if staff and students feel sick or show signs of sickness, they should stay home. We want to keep perspective with this outbreak but also use precaution since young people and healthy adults seem to recover from the virus very well while elderly or adults with health conditions struggle. The health and safety of our students and staff are always our top priority, and we will follow guidance from CDC, MDH, MDE, and local doctors in making decisions concerning this virus.  *Schools will be cleaned with Clorox over the next two days. ~ Superintendent Roy Lawson

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.
