After being delayed by over a month due to COVID-19, Marshall High School seniors received their diplomas during a commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 27. Prom was held on Thursday, June 25.
Superintendent Dr. Carol Maher is now focusing on the possibility of school getting back to some sort of normalcy. It is uncertain at this time what that will look like, especially since students across the state and country were distance learning since the latter part of March through the end of the 2019-20 academic year.
In a letter to faculty and students, Dr. Maher said the first day of school by the calendar approved by the school board is August 24. But she offered a word of warning: “We all know how quickly things can change, so be ready but be flexible.”
Dr. Maher said some input will be given from the district’s COVID-19 Task Force during the school board meeting on Monday, June 29.
Dr. Maher praised the COVID-19 Task Force, saying: “So, we’re going to listen to what they have to say. I’m sure they will have some good ideas for us to work as a team, looking at what’s best for Marshall Public Schools.”
Dr. Maher would like to see everything get back to normal.
The school board meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at central office.
